Media Molecule Announce Tearaway Delay

by on July 29, 2013

Famous for LittleBigPlanet, the England based studio Media Molecule has announced that their first foray into the handheld space, is going to be a little bit later than first thought.

Originally set to come out in late October, a PlayStation Blog post has revealed that the game will now be released on November 22:

“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.”

The PS Vita is still looking for that killer app to bring in the crowd that belittles the system that owners appear to love. Media Molecule’s pedigree could lead to a runaway success with Tearaway, or it may suffer the same fate as many other Vita games – poor sales due to small install base. Here’s hoping it’s more of the former.
