Wii Mercury Meltdown solidified 'til June

Puzzle game from Ignition Entertainment won't ooze onto Nintendo's new console until mid-June.

Ignition Entertainment today revealed that its upcoming Wii title, Mercury Meltdown Revolution, has been delayed. Originally scheduled for release on May 1, the puzzle game will now be released on June 12.

Mercury Meltdown Revolution is the next installment of the series, which has seen previous editions on the PlayStation Portable (Mercury Meltdown) and PlayStation 2 (Mercury Meltdown Remix). The Wii version will once again see gamers steering a blob of liquid mercury around a level filled with obstacles.

Mercury Meltdown Revolution is rated E for Everyone. For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage.

I'm not so sure this game will appeal to me but hey, if someone else wants to play it, rock on.

DWmorrow: An extra 2 weeks is hardly going to be extra dev time, it is more likely more production or distribution time, or time to fix a particularly bad bug. I would be very worried if the developers were still pottering around making anything more than bug fixes NOW let alone come june.

I was going to say I wouldnt pay $59.99 for this game, but if its only $29.99, then i may pick it up... or at least rent it.

Hopefully they're using the extra dev time to spruce up the graphics.

This looks like a pretty sweet little game, and it's retailing for only $29.99 when it's released. I may have to snag a copy.

Now I'm curious. Has ANY game in recent history been released when it was originally slated to come out (besides movie-licensed schlock)? EVERYTHING gets delayed, even little games like this. It's kinda ridiculous. If you don't know the release date, then don't commit to one and then bypass it with a delay.

This is not the reason why I bought a Wii. I want Corruption and Galaxy.

how long does it take to put in wii controls and new levels!!?? I'm psyched, and the $30 price tag sounds sweet... but C'MON!! Maybe a bit more elbow-grease here? Mid-June's a whiles away... :(

Um..why is this being featured? I know maybe some people like it, but me, as well as everyone I know thought Meltdown was terrible. Oh well, one more 3rd party gimmick for the Wii, while the rest of us wait quietly in our motion-sensored grottos for 1st party titles.

I held off on buying the PSP version when I heard it was coming to the Wii. Hopefully they can get the control scheme down solid. Looks interesting at least.
