Namco has revealed that its gravity-defying cover shooter, Inversion, is to miss its February 7 release date.

Gamespot reports that the game, which is in development at Saber Interactive, will now be released at some point in early 2012.

A statement from Namco reads:

"This additional development time will allow the team to polish several key aspects of the game ensuring Inversion is of the highest quality."
