KOEI has announced that PS3 titles Bladestorm and Fatal Inertia, originally scheduled for March, will now launch in summer 2007.
We're told the development teams simply need more time to get the games ship-shape.
Maybe so, but perhaps the recent revelation that both games are also on their way to Xbox 360 has something to do with the date slide.
Fatal Inertia is a futuristic racing game from KOEI's Canadian studio, which aims to make clever use of spectacular weapons and physics to disrupt other racers' progress. Originally a launch title for the console, it's now neither on time, nor exclusive.
Bladestorm is put together by KOEI's Omega Force team, the button-mashers behind Dynasty Warriors, and takes place during the Hundred Years War. Play as England or France, command bucket-loads of troops, and create massive carnage.
