Publisher Unties and developer PrimaryOrbit have officially delayed the release of Marchen Forest: Mylne and the Forest Gift Complete Edition for PlayStation 4 and Switch from its previously planned 2019 release window to 2020.
In a message posted on Twitter, the developer said that the game was delayed “based on the idea that there is room for further quality improvements,” iterating that “this is not a simple port, we’re working hard to deliver a significantly evolved game.”
Additionally, since Yuzu Hinase, the voice actor for both Mylne and Rozalina, is currently on a work hiatus, the voice actor for each character will be changed.
Marchen Forest: Mylne and the Forest Gift first launched for iOS and Android in March 2017 in Japan, followed by PC worldwide in May 2018. Here is an overview of the PC version, via its Steam page:
