New Nintendo Switch game delayed indefinitely just before release
A new game that was due to release on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and Nintendo Switch OLED consoles next week has now been delayed indefinitely. From time to time, we’ve seen games on all platforms suffer last-minute delays. And while it’s still unfortunate to see, those playing on Switch are now the last to experience any of these late launch day changes.
Announced via a press release today, publisher Accelerate Games revealed that HD Toy Soldierswhich was originally slated to arrive on Nintendo Switch on August 5, has now been put on “hold”. toy soldiers is a new Switch port of the popular third-person strategy game that first released on Xbox 360 in 2010. Since then, the game has made a comeback in the form of HD Toy Soldiers, which first came to Xbox, PlayStation, and PC platforms last year. And while the Switch iteration was supposed to drop next week, we now have no idea when it will arrive.
The reason for the delay, according to Accelerate Games, involves the multiplayer component of HD Toy Soldiers. Even though the game is largely ready to launch, Accelerate Games says it needs to find a fix for a software glitch that has arisen.
“We regret to inform you that we have to suspend the release of Toy Soldiers HD for Nintendo Switch for a little longer. not properly with the consumer version of the console when in multiplayer,” Accelerate Games said of the delay. “Our partners are working with us to quickly put a solution in place. Collectively, we all want you to be able to take full advantage of HD Toy Soldiers live. Whether it’s single player or multiplayer, we want you to experience the game’s hybrid FPS tower defense gameplay. […] We’ll keep you posted and look forward to the game’s release soon.”
