Mass Creation has delayed the Switch version of Shing! from its previously announced August 28 release date to an unannounced date.
“Adjusting to global events this year created unexpected challenges in our development process,” Mass Creation said in a statement to Gematsu. “Rather than release an unfinished product, we made the choice to delay the Switch launch until we’re confident it’s ready for players.”
The game will still launch for PlayStation 4 and PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam on August 28. An Xbox One version is also planned, but has yet to be dated.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
