The simply delightful looking Never Alone has sadly been delayed in Europe by one week, thanks to another occurrence of the certification delay with SCEE. However, this seems to be a conscious decision by E-Line Media and Upper One Games, who wanted to roll out a patch alongside the game to fix a few nigging bugs. It’s this update to the game which has yet to pass SCEE’s testing.
In a statement, they wrote:
The launch of Never Alone for PS4 in Europe has been delayed until 26 November. We have a game update that is currently in certification testing with SCEE and we want this update to be live before the game goes on sale.
The version of Never Alone currently available for PS4 in the Americas has this same update already incorporated (or we would have delayed that launch as well). Never Alone for Xbox One and PC in all territories already has this game update incorporated.
E-Line and Upper One Games are committed to delivering the best customer experience possible. While we’re disappointed that the European PS4 launch will be delayed by a week, we are confident that game players will be delighted by Never Alone when it does come out.
It’s a crying shame, because the Iñupiat adventure sounds quite wonderful, following the story of Nana and Fox, as well as offering up an insight into Iñupiat culture. In the meantime, be sure to check out Aran’s review, which went live yesterday.
