Quirky PS Vita title Tearaway will now be released on November 22, a month later than its planed mid-October launch, Media Molecule creative lead Rex Crowle has announced.

"We are now in the final stages of development, and have come to the realisation that we need a little more time than we anticipated to finish the game; to tie all of the mechanics, story and amazing visuals together into the adventure that we want you to play," explained Crowle. "To give us that time, we've decided to move the release date by one month, from mid-October, to November 22nd.

"We're really, really sorry for the minor delay, we promise you hand on heart that the wait will be worthwhile! Thanks for being patient, please don't be too cross with us, lots of love, Mm xxxx"

In Tearaway players will journey through a living papery world, with a messenger who has a unique message to deliver to the player. You'll be able to reach into the game world using the Vita's rear touchscreen to help your messenger friend, iota or atoi, complete this special delivery.

As you explore the game world you'll meet the papercraft creatures that live within it, help out strange new friends and encounter dangerous challenges.


Not only do we have to wait an extra month for the game, but it's also now very likely that Tearaway will have to battle for attention with the year's biggest releases - it comes out the same day at Ubisoft's Watch Dogs - but also must contend with next generation consoles.
