CrossCode, a 2D action-RPG, was announced for Switch at the start of this year. The original plan was to have the game ready by the end of 2019. Radical Fish Games has now officially confirmed a delay, and we also have an update from Deck13 – the studio handling the Switch port.

In its status report, Deck13 mentioned that it “underestimated the amount of work a bit”. The team also had to consider performance after translating the original HTML5 code.

Here’s the full explanation from Deck13:

Flat Heroes makes its way to Switch today through the eShop. We have the official launch trailer from Deck13 and Parallel Circles below.

Following a slight delay, Flat Heroes will be appearing on the Switch eShop this Thursday. Take a look at some footage below.

Flat Heroes was originally on track to hit Switch this Thursday. However, due to “the most unfortunate of circumstances,” the game has been pushed back. The slight delay will allow for “some extra polish and even more refined gameplay.”

No word yet on a new release date. We’ll let you know as soon as we have that information.

Flat Heroes was confirmed for Switch a little over a year ago. Today, Deck13 and Parallel Circles announced a release date of July 5.

Flat Heroes is a high speed, minimalist local multiplayer game with cooperative and competitive modes. It contains over 300 levels, 10 unique final bosses, unlimited survival levels, and more.

We have more information about Flat Heroes below, along with a trailer.

In the latest issue of Gamesource, Deck13’s creative director Jan Klose was asked about the possibility of bringing Lords of the Fallen to Wii U.

The chances of that happening aren’t very high, as Klose stated that the team probably won’t be doing a Wii U port. Such a move would ultimately be a publisher decision.

Klose’s said:

Right now I don’t think that we are going to do a Wii U port of the project, even though we love Nintendo devices. But in the end this is a decision of the publisher, whether they think supporting the Wii U is reasonable for their sales or not.
