Tearaway dated for PS Vita after minor delay

Monday, 29th July 2013 15:09 GMT By Dave Cook

Tearaway developer Media Molecule has dated its PS Vita debut for a November launch.

PS Blog EU pegs Tearawy’s launch on November 22. It was originally set for a mid-October launch.

Writing on the blog, Media Molecule explained the delay, “We are now in the final stages of development, and have come to the realisation that we need a little more time than we anticipated to finish the game; to tie all of the mechanics, story and amazing visuals together into the adventure that we want you to play.

“To give us that time, we’ve decided to move the release date by one month, from mid-October, to November 22nd.

“We’re really, really sorry for the minor delay, we promise you hand on heart that the wait will be worthwhile! Thanks for being patient, please don’t be too cross with us, lots of love, Mm xxxx”

Aww. I’ll never wash this face again.

    I has a sad…seriously, this game looks so great but releasing it within days/weeks of two brand new console launches? Ouch. The Vita could surely have benefited from this being released in a less-crowded window.

    @2 oh, no! :o I personally think this is good, sony have plans for the vita to be involved with the ps4, and my guess is the vita might sell a few more because of it. with that a new game will be released at the same time and will be marketed at the same time, so i see this as theyre plan. but i might be wrong, but yeah :p

    Vita is in a really bad shape right now everywhere except Japan, only outselling Wii U with help of a price cut, which is nothing to brag about.
    I am hoping Sony as plan to “relaunch” Vita in a major way by launching new models like slim and so on and reducing the price (if it reduces some features so be it). Some games wont save Vita, it already has an attach rate of 10. It needs to sell systems.

    This is one of the few games I’ve ever seen that I think is totally justified in being Vita-only. In fact, the way the game uses the Vita is how every game on the system should use it.

    @2: it was priced only 25 or 29 euros on amazon last time i checked. which is great and could solve the launchwindow problem.

    Sony doesn’t need to relaunch the Vita….They just need to ride it out. The system is powerful and will get a bunch of good games eventually.
