Shovel Knight Specter of Torment delayed on 3DS and Wii U

Bad news for those of you who’re still waiting for the release of Shovel Knight’s prequel extension Specter of Torment on 3DS and Wii U. While Nintendo Switch owners can already enjoy some retro shovelling with Specter Knight, studio Yacht Club Games announced that the European version of the stand alone game is delayed on 3DS or Wii U.

The team apparently encountered “unexpected issues” during the last stages of porting process, and since fixing those involve other teams, they can’t say when the game will release. Here’s the full statement:

Despite our best effort and brightest optimism, we have found a few unexpected issues which are holding up different versions at the final submission step. We’re doing everything we can to have these resolved as soon as possible, but since this last step involves other teams, we are not able to provide an exact release date. We really can hear back on almost any day. We’re sorry for this delay, but hope to have you playing the latest version soon!
