The topsy-turvy third-person shooter was originally due out next month on the PlayStation 3, but Namco Bandai's now said it won't arrive until "early 2012". The game's release was pulled into question when retailers started updating their internal databases with a March 27th date, as opposed to the previously anticipated February 7th launch.

"The launch of Inversion has been moved to early 2012, and more details will follow in an upcoming announcement," a Namco Bandai spokesperson said in a statement to Joystiq. "This additional development time will allow the team to polish several key aspects of the game ensuring Inversion is of the highest quality."

It would also help if Namco Bandai started actively promoting the title. Y'know, just so that people know what it is before it comes out.
