Broken Simulation and publisher Zerouno Games have announced that Green Phoenix, an on-rails space shooter planned to launch next week on Switch, has been delayed.

It was originally planned to launch on 27th May (at the time of writing the Switch eShop still displays this date), but will now release on 26th August. Zerouno Games says the game "does not represent the quality" the studio wishes to put out, hence the need for more time.

"Due to technical issues, the game does not represent the quality Zerouno Games believes it should reflect and, therefore, we are postponing the release of Green Phoenix for a calculated period of time in order to make this narrative experience as good as possible."

If this is the first time you're hearing about the game, it features a single-player story where a spaceship AI, known as Green Phoenix, remembers its dead pilot and embarks on a journey of revenge. You can get a taste of what to expect in the trailer above, or thanks to these screenshots:
