Fez delayed until early 2012

Bewitching XBLA platformer still not ready.

Intriguing Xbox Live Arcade platformer Fez has been pushed back until early 2012, co-creator Phil Fish has announced.

The developer announced the news on his Twitter feed but didn't offer a more exact date.

The excuse? "Debug, details, cert, waiting for cert. Microsoft's release buffer. It adds up," read a subsequent post.

Fez has been an awful long time coming. First announced back in 2008, it was meant to be out in early 2010 but release windows have come and gone without a sign.

Check out the trailer below for a look at what lies in wait.

In related news, yesterday Nottingham's GameCity festival announced it's bringing Fish over from the US for a week-long Fez showcase.
