The Pokémon-like monster-catching game Coromon was due to arrive on the Nintendo Switch this week, but it appears a last-minute delay will delay the game’s release on that platform.
In an update on social media, the development team explained how they encountered some “unexpected” online and cross-platform multiplayer issues in the Switch version of the game. The Steam release will still happen on March 31st.
Here is the message in full:
Hello everybody! This is definitely not an announcement we ever wanted to make, but we want to be as transparent and honest with you all as possible. While working on our Nintendo Switch port of Coromon, we ran into some unexpected issues when it comes to online functionality and cross-platform multiplayer. We want to make sure the experience we’re bringing to all of you on Switch is the best it can be, and to do that we need to delay the launch of Switch. We hope this delay won’t last too long as we know you are all very excited to play Coromon on the go and against your friends/other researchers.
That being said, we’ll still be launching on Steam this Thursday, March 31st! The Steam build will include multiplayer and cross-platform saves. Your saves from the Steam demo can also be carried over to the full version of the game. Once we launch on Switch, you’ll be able to play cross-platform too. We can’t wait to bring Coromon to Nintendo Switch, so we’re working 24/7 to get it there and will update you all once we have a new release date.
Thank you for your support and patience with us. Shine bright! Jochem and Marcel, the TRAGsoft team”
As mentioned, the team will release another update as soon as there is a new release date and hope the delay won’t be too long. Will you still be watching Coromon when it eventually comes to Nintendo Switch? Tell us in the comments.
