Has Fat Princess Been Delayed?

06/20/2009

For those of you who don’t know about Fat Princess here is the description from the official Playstation site. “Frantic and fun, Fat Princess pits two hordes of players against each other in a comic medieval battle royale. Your goal is to rescue your beloved princess from the enemy dungeon. There’s a catch though: your adversary has been stuffing her with cake to fatten her up and it’s going to take most of your army working together to carry her back across the battlefield.”

I have been into electronic games for a long long time. There is a universal truth about these games “Games will be delayed.”

Earlier this year videos were shown that said this title would be released in June (those vids are long gone I looked for them). Well June is almost over and there is not a peep out of Sony about this title.

On the European PS Blog Mike Kebbly responded to a question about the Release of Fat Princess in Europe saying “Fat Princess will have a global release date, but I can confirm for you it will not be next week I’m afraid. The game is coming at some point this summer, but there is no confirmed release date at the moment.”

This has raised fears that with only one more Thursday before the end of June that the US version will be delayed also. Destructoid, Shacknews, WorthPlaying and G4 have all announced on the web that this is the case.

I say there is a glimmer of hope. Europe has a history of getting the “pointy end of the stick” when it comes to game releases. The diversity of the area that SCEE covers makes it a nightmare for localization and approval. I am NOT saying Fat Princess will come out this June 25th. I just saying no wailing and gnashing of teeth until the 25th comes and goes or until SCEA gives us the official word.
