Upcoming title Battle Princess Madelyn has seen its second delay in as many weeks, publisher Hound Picked Games has confirmed.

Just last week, the game was delayed from its original release date of 6th December to 13th December, which means that we should have been able to buy the game this Thursday. Unfortunately, this second date has now also been scrapped, with new patches having been completed and submitted to Nintendo for clearance.

Christopher Obritsch of developer Causal Bit Games has said the following:

"Unfortunately, the delay for Switch (and PS4 (NA)) was unavoidable, but these extra weeks have resulted in superb feedback from some top gaming media, and experts, which means some new and exciting additions to the game will occur over the next month via patches updated through all the stores. Some gamers, although loving the game, have been frustrated by certain strategies in what is an 'old school' concept. As such a help and hints system patch will be available shortly to aid the player.

We have been totally transparent throughout and hope gamers will continue to feed us information. Due to the length of time it takes to get patches through the different publishers, we hope that the Switch version will be out very soon. We will ensure that all of the bug fixes and changes we took in from feedback are in the game on launch. Thank you for your understanding

Naturally, with these new patches being submitted and the release date currently up in the air, our review of the game will also now come at a later date. Hopefully we'll find out a more solid launch date in the near future.
