The Swapper delayed to Aug. 5 for PlayStation platforms

Puzzle-platformer The Swapper has been delayed from its June 24 launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita and will now be available Aug. 5 in North America and Aug. 6 in Europe, developer Curve Digital announced today.

The delay will help polish the ports, "which have required extra optimization." According to managing director Jason Perkins, The Swapper is the first indie title "to really push the limits of the PlayStation 3 and Vita.

"We've been able to really throw the power of the PS4 at the game," Perkins said, "but we also want to ensure that when the game comes out, it looks great and runs well at 30 FPS on hardware that, in the case of the PlayStation 3, is over seven years old."

This marks the second delay for the game, which was originally said to launch in late May.

Once released, the game will be available as a cross-buy title on all three platforms. Pre-orders for the game are expected in July.

The Swapper was originally released for Linux, Mac and Windows PC by Facepalm Games; Curve is in charge of the PlayStation ports. For more on the game, check out our review.
