Where In The World Is Strong Bad?
Posted by Darren Calvert
Bad news for Strong Bad fans today. It seems that SBCGFAP will NOT be coming out in July after all! Emily Morganti, the marketing coordinator over at Telltale Games explains the dealio on their game forum:
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the game is not coming out tomorrow.
What IGN said is true - we have submitted the game to Nintendo, and as soon as we get approval from them, it will be released quickly after that. We really are in the home stretch. We've been waiting to announce a release date until we have that approval, though, because until that happens, well, anything can happen! Getting games into WiiWare is a new process for us and we're learning as we go, so I'm sorry if any of you are disappointed that tomorrow is the last Monday in July and you won't have a Strong Bad game to play. On the plus side, we're closer now than we've ever been, and very soon we should be able to tell you exactly when it's coming out!
Also, I'd like to preemptively say that contrary to some comments I've seen people making here and there, Nintendo has NOT been sitting on the game for months. We were still working on getting some bugs fixed until fairly recently. So please don't assume that they're some evil empire that's been hoarding the game since June because they don't want you to have it. Everyone we're working with at Nintendo wants the game to come out just as badly as we (and you!) do.
It might just be Pong Toss up for grabs on WiiWare later today. You have to laugh don’t you?
