El motivo es que necesitan más tiempo para pulir y probar el juego en las 10 plataformas en las que estará disponible, así que estiman que tardarán «unos meses más», aunque aseguran que la próxima vez que den una fecha será ya definitiva.
Este retraso afectará también a las ediciones físicas y al pack de tres amiibo de Treasure Trove, que tendrán esperar a que todo el contenido esté finalizado.
We have only a bit more work left to do on completing King of Cards and Showdown. The two, brand new, complete games coming to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. It remains our focus to bring these to the highest level of quality just as we have with previous Shovel Knight games. It's also our priority to have these games on the disc/card for the upcoming physical version. We need a little more time to make this happen, and so we are pushing the release back one last time. We're still aiming to release everything at once, so this this delay applies to everything: physical editions, digital update, and Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack.
How far back?
We estimate several months-- at most! This is not a major delay so much as more space to bring everything together for a polished and complete finale. As always, these last steps require coordination with many teams beyond our own.
We realize the delay is disappointing. To communicate better with everyone moving forward, we will not be announcing a new date until we know one for sure, from all partners involved. All builds shipped out, updates ready to launch, for everybody and everyone. We will announce it for good once it is 100% all across the board!
