Natsume Atari‘s Tengo Project has delayed Pocky & Rocky Reshrined from its previously planned fall 2021 release window to spring 2022, the team announced. “Various circumstances” was cited for the delay.
Here is an overview of the game, via western publisher Natsume:
Pocky & Rocky follows the adventures of a young Shinto shrine maiden named Pocky and her companion, Rocky the raccoon, as they attempt to save a group of creatures known as the Nopino Goblins. Gameplay takes place from a top-down perspective and features both single-player and cooperative modes.
Pocky & Rocky Reshrined is a sequel to Pocky & Rocky, known in Japan as the action-shooting game series Kiki Kaikai, which first appeared as an arcade game from Taito Corporation in 1986 and is being developed under license from Taito Corporation.
