Following Freedom Planet’s final delay, GalaxyTrail said that a new date wouldn’t be announced until all bugs and issues were ironed out. The game did finally make its way to the North American Wii U eShop on Thursday, but some players are unfortunately encountering a notable problem.

GalaxyTrail said on Miiverse a few days ago that they’re aware of a problem. There’s no timetable for it yet, but a patch is already planned. GalaxyTrail also shared some temporary solutions.
