Among the promising lineup of games scheduled to release in the latter parts of 2020, Skul: The Hero Slayer stood to be an exciting arrival for current hardware in a very stressful year for many. However, developer SouthPAW Games in an unfortunate plan of events decided to delay the initially scheduled October release for the game later in December.

Even then, the timing for a late 2020 launch still stood to be overambitious for the South Korean team, but the extended push only lands the month following. In a new announcement, SouthPAW Games unveils the game officially launches in January later this month. Even more, the title is also arriving to major consoles later in “early 2021”.

Initially, Skul: The Hero Slayer released via Early Access back in February, but now the full version intended from the game studio is arriving in these coming weeks. You can watch the latest trailer for the game below:

“We’d like to sincerely apologize for not being able to follow through on our promise to release the update this year,” the team writes. “We gave it our best effort, but ultimately fell short of our goals and it is killing us not being able to share what we’ve been working on with you before the holiday season.

“Simply put, we underestimated the amount of time it would take to fully implement and test all of the changes and additions that we’ve made to the game. As we referenced in earlier posts the 1.0 patch will be pretty massive, so it was hard to accurately predict our development timeline.” Upon the frequen updates subjected to Skul: The Hero Slayer since hitting Early Access, Version 1.0 is the biggest in the lineage offering the most content alongside a new upgrade system.
