Tropico 4 Xbox 360 delayed

Out next month.

The Xbox 360 version of Tropico 4 has been delayed.

It had been pegged for release in mid-September, but will now launch on 18th October in the US.

That's a Tuesday, so we will probably get it on Friday, 21st October. We're checking with the UK arm of publisher Kalypso Media now.

The PC version is out. Eurogamer's Tropico 4 review returned a 7/10.

"It's hard not to like Tropico 4, because it's based on a solid foundation that is naturally engaging," wrote Dan Whitehead. "It was and remains an enjoyable if slight take on a dry genre. Its tragedy is that it hasn't bothered to build anything worthwhile on top of that foundation, preferring instead to coast on jaunty music that makes you feel like you're playing in Nando's and broad satire that fails to sustain the game beyond the first few days of play."
