Some of you may remember Antipole, a great action platformer that released on the DSiWare service back in 2011. Saturnine Games has been hard at work developing Antipole DX a remake of sorts for the 3DS and Wii U eShops, one which will feature additional levels, leaderboards, Miiverse stamps and more extra goodies. It all looks like it's coming together pretty well, but it was just recently announced that we'll have to wait a little longer before we get a shot at playing this second pass.
The announcement came via Miiverse, where Ed of Saturnine Games explained the situation. The game is 95% done, but certain parts of the game took longer than expected to complete, which led to conflicts in the schedule. As a result, the game has been delayed until 2017. Though there's no indication of when it'll be ready, Ed was keen to mention that it's very close to being done, so hopefully the wait won't be too much longer.
What do you think? Does this disappoint you? What did you think of the original game? Drop us a comment in the section below.
Wow pretty gutted about this as it looks really good, but the eshop is on fire right now with cool Indie games and there are more on the way. i have more than enough games to play.
Very much looking forward to this one. It is what it is. Can't wait to play it. Day 1 buy for me.
Aw, dang it. I was looking forward to this one. Never got to play the original.
The game seemed tough as nails and it's strange that it's been delayed. As far I knew the game was as good as done.
@RyanSilberman You still can download the original DSi version on the 3DS's eShop.
@JacquesLecornu DSi version worth a go?
@readyletsgo It depends on whether you can wait for the DX version or not. The original Antipole is still a great game.
Never heard of it.
A shame indeed...well, at least there's still Shantae and Hollow Knight.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE Most indie developers have to split their time between working on their games and working on other things. Right now, I have other projects that need my full time attention.
There really isn't a lot left to do. Maybe a few weeks worth of work. To do it properly, I need to give it my full time attention. Maybe that can happen next month, or maybe it has to wait longer. I don't really know right now.
@SaturnineGames I can relate..
Make the game as good as it can be so delaying is always better than rushing a game out.
