The Little Battlers Delayed
Level-5's model constructing RPG needs two more months.

Level-5's next big PSP RPG, The Little Battlers, where you design plastic models to fight, is delayed once again. The title was set to come out last year, then got pushed back until March 17, 2011, and now has a new release date: May 17, 2011 in Japan.
Why the delay? The developer stated it was necessary to make a top-notch, quality game. Apparently, there were a lot of ideas they wanted to pack into The Little Battlers, and they're taking more time to pan out than was originally anticipated. At the very least, it's apparent they want to put out a polished game.
Unfortunately, there is still no announcement for a release outside of Japan and the possibility for release elsewhere is looking grim. The Level-5 titles that have been released outside of Japan were Sony owned intellectual properties, and that is not the case for The Little Battlers.
