Pocket Rumble designer explains the delay, shouldn’t be too far off

Pocket Rumble was planned to hit the Switch eShop in March. That didn’t happen sadly, and the game remains without a concrete release date. The good news is that Pocket Rumble shouldn’t be too far off.

As for why Pocket Rumble was delayed, one of the co-designers mentioned that “the date we announced was too early to begin with due to miscommunication”. “Working out the technical kinks of the port has just taken much longer than we expected,” the developer added.

Pocket Rumble’s “final build” will be submitted to Nintendo in just a few days. After that, the team will be looking to determine when the title will be launching.

Right now it’s a matter of completing Nintendo’s lot check process. Once that’s done, Pocket Rumble should be ready to launch.
