Manticore – Galaxy on Fire, a sci-fi space shooter from Fishlabs and Deep Silver, was supposed to launch on Nintendo Switch yesterday; unfortunately, the game was pushed back at the last second. The developers took to Twitter to say that the game has been delayed.
They could not share a new date with us at this time, leaving the delay indefinite. Fishlabs does hope to share a new date soon though. That being said, if you pre-ordered the game, that purchase will carry over to when Manticore – Galaxy on Fire actually releases. You can check out the tweet announcing the delay below:
Dear fans & players, we are sorry to inform you that the release of Manticore – Galaxy on Fire on the Nintendo eShop has been delayed. We will update you with more details & a new release date soon. If you pre-ordered the game, please note that your purchase is still valid.

While no exact reason was given for the delay, it is likely that some unforeseen technical issues arose. It is a shame the game wasn’t delayed until the day of release, but hopefully, the developers will use this extra time to polish up the game even more.
Manticore – Galaxy on Fire for Nintendo Switch is currently without a release date, though several Galaxy on Fire titles are currently available on iOS and Android.
