From Cradle Games , developers of the RPG and space action adventure, have confirmed that they have been forced to postpone the launch of the video game on the console, initially scheduled for July 30, until a new date this year with the aim of reaching the quality standards that the study requires.
Bringing Hellpoint to the Nintendo Switch is a challenge for a small team like ours“Our goal is to make the adaptation for the Nintendo Switch the best possible quality . Achieving the desired polishing state will require more time. We do not want to risk launching a product that does not satisfy us or you, our players, “the Quebec company said in a statement. “As everyone knows, bringing a production the size and complexity of Hellpoint to the Nintendo Switch is quite a challenge , especially for a small team like ours and under the current [pandemic] circumstances.”
The biggest challenge, they point out from Cradle Games, is currently related to the implementation of online multiplayer , as well as finishing optimizing the title. From the study they hope to be able to share new developments later.
With the exception of split-screen multiplayer, the spatial souls-like version for the Japanese system will be practically the same as the other formats. The video game will be playable on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Xbox One this coming July 30.
Hellpoint is presented as an RPG, action and science fiction video game set in a dark universe, where the line that separates science from the occult arts is blurred and unstable and the player will have to explore a space station facing nasty creatures and cosmic divinities alone or in the company of a friend.
