This game was finished long time ago but it still hasn't released anywhere. It was supposed to be released on 3ds and Wii
Does anyone know what happened to this game and if it will ever be released?

According to what I read, the lack of release so far is solely on the hands of Kadokawa, the publisher.

I had forgotten about this game. Hmm I imagine it got canned. Sux because it looked like a cross between KI:U and Sonic (his homing attack)

I just can't imagine why they'd finish it, THEN can it. Especially since KI:U is still selling like crazy and they're so similar. I'd totally buy it since I've had KI:U since launch and still love it.

I wasn't gonna get it even if it was released,but odd to see it was canned. Oh well, win some, you lose some (or in this case, you lose some, you win).

Exactly I would buy it first day if it came to the States. Hope its released here or in matter of fact anywhere

They've basically stopped directly campaigning for games and instead decided to become a typical gaming site with a slant towards niche gaming. A decent move if you ask me, though I'm probably biased.

also their thing was more for localization rather than games being released at all

From what Yuji said, he finished the game already and sent it to the publisher, but hasn't heard from them since. I doubt this game will see the day of light unless some other publisher can get their hands on it.

I doubt fan movements like Op Rainfall can get it localized because it needs to get a Japanese release in the first place.

I suppose creating Sonic the Hedgehog doesn't get you far if you decide to be more independent.

What do you have against it?

All the footage I saw looked like crap, and I'm against crap games in general.

The game is by the way finally getting released, though only in Japan.

Kadogawa Games and Nintendo unveiled it in the latest Nintendo Direct for Japan two weeks ago.

It's coming in April 2nd and the price for the Wii U version is a bit insanely high, it's also coming out for 3DS.

The preorders and first print versions for the Wii U version will apparently include also the original Wii version of the game and the Wii version was actually finished and done by Yuji Naka's team already years ago, but Kadogawa Games did not want to release it for unknown reasons, maybe because Wii was already dead platform?

Anyways, I really hope that they release it in Europe and North America also. I have been waiting for Yuji Naka's next game for a looooooooooooooong time.

Did nobody in Nintendolife staff watch the Japanese Direct, I did not see any news items covering that. They had a lot of really cool eShop games coming out that most likely will never come out in Europe or NA.

Wasn't this game shown off in the Japanese Nintendo Direct this month? I'm pretty sure the only thing that's up in the air is localization.
