Sad face.

Party game Runbow has been delayed on Switch, it has been revealed.

Publisher Headup Games and developer 13AM have released a joint statement apologising for the delay, which has been made "in order to further optimise the game’s performance".

The delay impacts both the Switch and PS4 versions of the game, and may also push back the release of the retail version, entitled Runbow Deluxe Edition. No solid release date has been revealed.

Here's a portion of the PR statement:

The colorful racing chaos of award-winning party game Runbow will be postponed for some weeks in order to further optimize the game’s performance.

Headup Games and 13AM Games deeply apologize to everyone who's already looking forward excitedly to play it, but in order to feature the highest quality possible, Runbow needed to be delayed for PlayStation®Store and Nintendo eShop. But rest assured - it's just a matter of weeks. You will get the newest date, as soon as it is set.

The same may apply to the retail Runbow Deluxe Edition, due to the digital shift this date will probably shift back a bit as well. The Deluxe Edition will include all DLCs and nice physical goodies.
