Square Enix announced their E3 lineup and stealthily delayed n-Space's upcoming game.

Heroes of Ruin, from Square Enix and n-Space, is getting pushed back by three weeks to July 17, according to a press release from Square Enix about E3 2012.

The game, which is a Diablo-esque game featuring four-player co-op locally and online with voice chat, was originally slated for a June 26 release. When it was first unveiled, it was set for an early 2012 release. The delay only applies to the North American date. The June 15 European launch remains unchanged.

Dang. this is to close to Kingdom Hearts 3DS for me. I may end up skipping it now for KH.

This actually gives me some time to finish up Diablo 3 and get it out of my system before I pick this one up and start a whole new addiction...

I've been mildly excited about this game... but the delays are starting to create doubts. What's going on that keeps pushing this one back? Surely development has been long finished, and if the European release is unchanged then I don't understand why Square Enix is making North America wait almost an extra month beyond the (already delayed) date previously announced.


At least there will be no shortage of reviews from across the pond by the time the game releases here.

Heroes of Ruin or Diablo 3? Haha. I'm sort of a casual Diablo 3 player... had it since launch and only just started Act 3...

Weird. My original post seems to have vanished when the story was updated. My original question had been whether or not this applied to Europe as well. Ah well, I'm glad to hear that it doesn't.

Yeah, I don't really understand why.  Mario Tennis is the only big release for May (maybe the only release period?) and nothing in June.  Then July just gets insane.  Everything is coming out in July.  Theatrhytm.  Heroes of Ruin.  Rhythm Thief (maybe).  Kingdom Hearts.  One game for each week of the month, and you've got Last Story on the Wii that month.  What's so special about July?

Well, there is Rayman Origins on June 5. The LEGO games are usually pretty good, so there is LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes on June 19. Not the biggest releases, but both should be good.

Maybe Unchained Blades will come out in June? I'll be sinking a TON of hours into that.

Edit: Also, isn't Rhythm Thief in July?
