Explodemon! Lengthens Release Date Fuse

Explodemon! Lengthens Release Date Fuse

If you've been waiting for Explodemon! to hit the PSN, it turns out you're going to have wait even more.

Explodemon! looks like it's going to be a fun, goofy game for the PS3. Unfortunately, it also looks like gamers are going to have to wait a while longer to actually play it, since the title has been delayed from sometime in Q4 2010 (which is, really, only a month at this point) to sometime in January.

Developer Curve Studios has cited "last minute issues" as the reason for the delay:

"Approaching a senior member of the company for an explanation behind the delay, a slightly panicked man - who asked to not be named - spluttered, 'It was like that when I found it!' before running away, arms windmilling.

"Attempts to retroactively correct this outburst to something more professional proved futile, but we understand it had something to do with 'last-minute fixes' and 'remaining unflinchingly resolute in our desire to only release the most awesome game possible.'

"In short: we're sorry! But it'll really be worth it. Promise."

If you haven't heard of Explodemon! before this point, the game is a 2.5D action platformer that claims to be paying homage to "SNES-era Japanese games." Players control an Ultraman-esque hero who uses his ability to explode to solve puzzles, fly, and fight enemies. Of course, it also sounds like it's a bit of a Splosion Man clone, too, but early footage makes it look like it's at least a good clone.

Its name makes me think its going to be like pokemon. Only instead of pokemon its explosions.

If it's a Splosion Man clone, I'll pass. I couldn't stand that game, so boring.

Although maybe if I get to play as Magnezone or some other Pokemon that learns Explode since that's what the name suggests to me...

yeah it looks very splosion manish, but i liked splosion man when i tried it and i dont have an xbox so bring on the psn clone ^^, and since i havent heard about it before a delay doesnt matter.

there where plenty of pokemons that exploded, but i kinda like the idea of having a team of explosions you have to battle and level up.

No thanks. My heart only has room for one 'sploding man, and it's been given to 'Splosion Man.

Damn me too.

OT: Looks okay but I don't own either platform, so I'll stick with raging at 'Splosion mans hardcore mode.

"Please be bringing it on! I will reduce you into brittleness fluid!"

Fucking sold, give me a copy.

i'm n the same boat, looks sweet

The fake Engrish is pretty funny, and a game that's pretty much a cross between 'Splosion Man and Mega man sounds interesting; shame I don't own a PS3...

Hmm, I wonder why it isn't seeing an XBLA release...

OOoh a Wiiware version too? I'll buy it

Hey, this looks familiar.

Oh yeah, it's a 'Splosion Man reskin.

Not so much. I'm not sure why the trailer is for a Wiiware version, but the game's official site only talks about PSN.

Sad face now. Oh well. Most likely a bad typo

Hmm... A 'Splosion man clone? I dunno. Looks nice, though.

looks like Megaman. I'd get it if I had the money.

Such a rip-off of this Xbox Live title

Go Go Lawyers!

Both 'Splosion Man and Pokemon's lawyers are going to have a great time with this one...

Looks kinda fun all the same.

So it looks like a 'Splosion Man ripoff with a Megaman-esque design and a Pokemon/Digimon-esque name. Not really impressed. Also, how can you have a name of "Explodemon" and not give it some kind of fantasy/mythological theme? Hello... ExploDEMON?
