Hohokum Slithers Away from PS4's Japanese Launch

Posted by Sammy Barker

No laughing matter

Originally intended for release alongside the PlayStation 4 in Japan, Honeyslug’s intriguing zen-‘em-up Hohokum now has a vague “sometime in 2014” release window attached to it. The title had been set to slide onto the next generation console on 22nd February in the East, but it will now take it easy until later in the year.

The snippet comes courtesy of the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, which also reports that Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends and Yakuza Ishin will be ready in time for the device’s launch. Remember, all day one editions will come with a free copy of Knack by way of an apology for the system’s delay. Some may see that as an insult, depending on who you ask.

They should love Knack, it was a good game! But wow that's a bummer about Hohokum :/ Didn't know about Dynasty Warriors though, that'll be a cool launch title.

"Dunno what's with the stories reporting Hohokum slipped from Japanese PS4 release: was never a date we were targeting. A misunderstanding?"
