Taking a bite out of its release date

Promising 3DS action adventure Heroes of Ruin's North American release date just took heavy damage, skulking off to 17th July.

Developer n-Space didn't give any reason for the delay — which only affects North America — simply saying on its Facebook page:

A note to our valued Heroes of Ruin fans and supporters...

We share your excitement as we build toward the release of Heroes of Ruin, one of the most ambitious titles yet developed for the Nintendo 3DS! The game's multiplayer experiences, voice chat, daily challenges and other features will provide an unprecedented Nintendo 3DS experience.

Because there are so many features within Heroes of Ruin that are new to Nintendo 3DS games, we've worked closely with Square Enix and Nintendo to deliver the highest quality experience. These collaborative efforts have ensured you'll play a uniquely enjoyable and well supported game.

With development now completed, we look forward to Heroes of Ruin debuting in Europe on June 15 and North America on July 17. While the game's rollout will take slightly longer than previously announced, we know your time in the World of Veil will be all the better for it.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to crossing paths with you soon in Nexus!

Hopefully the game will be worth all this waiting.
