Strong Bad Delayed… Again

See this guy? This is Strong Bad. He’s not happy.

You see, today his game was supposed to be among those released on the Nintendo Shop Channel. But that did not happen. Just as it did not happen as it was originally planned in June. Perhaps something is afoot? Foul play, perhaps?

“What IGN said is true,” says Emily from Telltale Games. “…we have submitted the game to Nintendo, and as soon as we get approval from them, it will be released quickly after that. We really are in the home stretch. We’ve been waiting to announce a release date until we have that approval, though, because until that happens, well, anything can happen! Getting games into WiiWare is a new process for us and we’re learning as we go, so I’m sorry if any of you are disappointed that tomorrow is the last Monday in July and you won’t have a Strong Bad game to play. On the plus side, we’re closer now than we’ve ever been, and very soon we should be able to tell you exactly when it’s coming out!”

“Also, I’d like to preemptively say that contrary to some comments I’ve seen people making here and there, Nintendo has NOT been sitting on the game for months. We were still working on getting some bugs fixed until fairly recently. So please don’t assume that they’re some evil empire that’s been hoarding the game since June because they don’t want you to have it. Everyone we’re working with at Nintendo wants the game to come out just as badly as we (and you!) do.”
