Microïds, Pendulo Studios, and Ys Interactive have confirmed that Blacksad: Under The Skin’s release on Nintendo Switch has been delayed into November.
The development team will use the extra time to polish the game to “deliver the best possible experience” for players.
The upcoming narrative adventure game is based in the world of the comic book series, Blacksad.
Set in New York in the 1950s, the owner of an unassuming boxing club, Joe Dunn, has been found hanged. At the same time his protégé and best hope, Robert Yale, has gone missing.
Devastated by the terrible news, Joe Dunn’s daughter, Sonia, decides to continue to pursue her father’s dream. She takes over the reins of the club and hires John Blacksad to investigate the mysterious disappearance.
The fight of the year is just around the corner and the club, in dire financial straits, will not survive if Robert Yale doesn’t turn up. You will play as Blacksad, a cynical, seductive and nonchalant anthropomorphic cat, as you do your best to track him down.
Blacksad: Under the Skin will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch on November 5th.
