We suspect that the folks at Koei Tecmo feel like going all Ryu Hayabusa on Sony's ass right now, as Dead or Alive 5: Last Round has been delayed until Wednesday on the European PlayStation Store. While this doesn't sound so bad in isolation, it's worth noting that the title was due out on Friday, but failed to show up on the PlayStation 4's online storefront. To make matters worse, free-to-play punch up Core Fighters can be downloaded without a hitch.
As a one off, we'd be willing to turn a blind eye – but this is just the latest in a catalogue of screw ups by SCEE. Earlier in the year, Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed failed to arrive on time, but its absence was overlooked due to it being a comparatively low profile release. And we're still, several months later, waiting for Costume Quest 2 to deploy on the next-gen device in these parts. We appreciate that the PAL market is complicated, but this isn't good enough.
