Upcoming Wii U eShop title Insanity's Blade has had its release date changed to "TBA" for the time being, according to a blog post on Causal Bit Games' official site. The game, an 8-bit arcade-style adventure promising to offer "the ultimate 8-bit experience," was funded via Kickstarter on 18th December last year and was announced for release on the Wii U eShop shortly thereafter.

Causal Bit Games made sure to note the game is in a completed, playable state at the current moment "aside [from] a few minor glitches." They cited game testers' feedback as the main reason for further delay:

We’ve had people testing the game and all have made suggestions to game play mechanics, sounds issues, and other little things... Based on more people playing, we will collect the best suggestions to the game play and make the changes before releasing to the public. We really don’t expect it to take that long but we’re also not happy with announcing release dates and then pushing it back again... We are going to look into everything we can to make this game as enjoyable as possible for everyone who wants to play it.

The developers also said that Kickstarter backers will be given a private build of the game as promised, but those waiting to get their hands on the Wii U iteration will have to wait just a little longer. Are you looking to get your hands on the retro goodness of Insanity's Blade when it hits the eShop? What do you think of Causal Bit Games' decision to hold off on setting a firm release date?
