Tearaway Release Date Update

Rex Crowle's Avatar Posted by Creative Lead, Media Molecule

Tearaway on PS Vita

Here at Media Molecule we love to make new things on new platforms. To us, making games is a real labor of love. Our very blood, sweat and tears are poured into every pixel, every line of code, every note in every song, and every little post it note we use to plan our lives.

Tearaway is our first handheld game, set in a totally new world, with characters on a new adventure. Throughout development we have constantly explored all the ways we could think of to create the most fun and enjoyable experiences possible on PS Vita, whilst also learning how to make a 3D creative platformer! We are really proud of the work we are doing, and are really excited to share it with you!

We are now in the final stages of development, and have come to the realisation that we need a little more time than we anticipated to finish the game; to tie all of the mechanics, story and amazing visuals together into the adventure that we want you to play. To give us that time, we’ve decided to move the release date by one month, from mid-October, to November 22nd.

We’re really, really sorry for the minor delay, we promise you hand on heart that the wait will be worthwhile! Thanks for being patient, please don’t be too cross with us, lots of love, Mm xxxx

It looks like a fun game. Disappointed to hear about the delay but the holidays will be a great time for it.

Darn, going to be taking a trip in late October and was hoping to have this for the plane rides. I’m sure I’ll find some time over the Holidays to play it though!

No problem here, hope that you are able to complete the game to your high standards. 1 month will be worth it. Looks great!

No real reason to apologize for the delay.
The quality of any game is much more important than hitting a specific date, or at least it should be to the fans. It’s looking really good, and I’m looking forward to playing it.

Well thats a bummer. Unfortunately that puts this right in the middle of the new console releases and the holiday games rush so I probably won’t be able to afford to get this at launch now :-/

Oh well. Still will be a great game and I look forward to getting to play it someday.

I LOVED the demo at e3…but now that this is coming out a bit later, i may need to skip it for ps4 and killzone :/ maybe ill get lucky and get some overtime! :D

Will the digital release have the pre-order bonuses? And take your time releasing the game.

There aren’t really any major releases for the Vita in November.. so that’s cool. (Maybe FFXHD, right? Haha)

So, yeah.. it’s cool. I’ll be all up in Pokemon X/Killzone Merc in October anyways.

GeoDarky said:

Its ok, take your time with game we want it when its ready, thanks for the update

Now this is a true vita game!

Decipher812 said:

I think they delayed it till nov 22 cause the previous date is going to be around the time ps4 is going to release. I’m expecting ps4 in October. I don’t mind the delay extra time on development is never bad. I have high hopes for tearaway looks very promising.

New12 said:

July 29th, 7:28 am

Ah take your time. I am going to get it whenever it comes out. Lets hope it doesn’t get overshadowed by the PS4 release because you guys at Media Molecule deserve praise and attention for what you did with LBP and this looks as good if not better.

Gorvi said:

July 29th, 7:30 am

This is disappointing, but I’d rather see the best game possible as opposed to one that’s put out without that little bit of extra work that makes it that much better. I have way too much to play on my Vita anyway, this will just give me more time to catch up.

JamalVita_91 said:

At Least The Date Is Not Set Back To Next Year, So Take Your Time Guys. The More Improvments, The Better. :-)

Elatis said:

July 29th, 7:46 am

So you changed the date to my birthday? Thanks!

Not many games out there for my poor Vita, but this one is a must have.

Will there be a special edition release (something like Muramasa)?

Sulumon said:

July 29th, 7:51 am

As much as I think the game will be unique and entertaining; let’s read this as what it truly is, which is Media Molecule trying to steer-clear of the Killzone and Batman launch windows. Yes, I know, different genre/audiences but there is only so much money to go around, especially for a niche plat-former on a handheld that is struggling amidst the launch of next-gen machines.

I’m not disappointed by the game’s delay as it makes more sense to carve out a less crowded release date for itself. In just 2 and 1/2 months things are about to get real . . . can’t wait!!

TomHoang said:

Take as long as you need. This game looks like it’s going to be amazing based on the footage from the trailer. Will definitely be picking this up at launch.

At least I will have Beyond: Two Souls (and hopefully the PS4) to hold me over until this gem releases.

July 29th, 8:12 am

That’s not good, Vita is already suffering from lack of titles and one of its biggest just got delayed. :(

AeroZeroX said:

July 29th, 8:31 am

Ah man, I really wanna ride a pig. I guess I can just do the real thing and hogtie one at the state fair.


July 29th, 8:35 am

“learning how to make a 3D creative platformer!” You never have to worry about selling games, they’re all golden! I’ll be waiting patiently, Thank you fro all the great experiences thus far.

Any chance more Tearaway paper cutout crafts will be posted again??
I noticed at the end of the vid he made like a “deal with it” squirrel or something haha i really enjoyed making the elk cutout you guys posted last year around Christmas :)))

He still sits on my shelf :D

I cant wait to nab this for my Vita though!

Take your time MM, just give me a finished product. Thx for telling us early and not waiting until the beginning of Oct for this.

DJRWarEagle90 said:

July 29th, 9:13 am

Awesome no need to rush MM we all know this game will be amazing and definitely a unique experience on the Vita!

Figboy said:

I played this at E3 this year, and it was fantastic. Despite loving LittleBigPlanet with a passion, I was fairly lukewarm on Tearaway. I thought it looked charming, but I wasn’t sure how the gameplay mechanics would work. But after playing it finally, I fell in love with it. I think I was smiling the entire time I played the E3 demo, and was smiling afterwards! It instantly went to a day one purchase for me.

With the PS4 launching before year’s end, I’m sure I can be a little more patient for Tearaway, however.

Whew, good thing it moved back to November, my money’s going to other things this October.

B-wrekless said:

Take your time. The game looks excellent.

Take the time to get it right. We will still be here when you’re done.

GhostMachine1 said:

July 29th, 10:20 am

If this means a more polished game and possibly more content than I’m all for it!

TheShemoney411 said:

July 29th, 10:29 am

cough cough it’s because of Pokemon X & Y cough cough
good news though, now I can play more pokemon

TehFineztJokerX said:

No need to rush MM. Take your time to make the game perfect. We all know this game will be magnificent and a unique experience on the PS Vita.

xClayMeow said:

July 29th, 10:58 am

It’s quite alright, MM…that just means more time for KZM and B:AOB beforehand :)

Ryumoau said:

July 29th, 11:45 am

looks cute but i’ll have to wait to see a price before i decide anything.

Biscuitime said:

July 29th, 12:10 pm

I will wait FOREVER.
..Okay that’s not within my reach, but definitely another month, provided I don’t keel over from antici……pation.
Thanx guys! Love you!!!

Kchow23 said:

July 29th, 12:57 pm

As long as this game is super polished and awesome then I will wait longer. I guess more time spent on Persona 4 :)


July 29th, 1:02 pm

Fallout3 for PSN :)

Thank you for respecting the gamer enough to realize that you need time to make sure your game isn’t sub-par when it’s released.

TSFRJ said:

calender marked and waiting

tusunami said:

July 29th, 1:23 pm

This will be another great release for PS Vita, the games just keep on coming yeaaah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nevi901 said:

July 29th, 2:31 pm

Day 1 for me! :D

GameOverComesAll said:

July 29th, 3:00 pm

Disappointed, but if you really need the time then it’s better to take it than to release an unfinished/subpar game.

Green-Elf-JPN said:

July 29th, 3:17 pm

It’s ok. Make it better. The only problem is now it’s in the window that I feel guilty buying things for myself due to the holiday shopping season. Thank goodness my pre-order is already paid off! :-)

samiamiamsam said:

July 29th, 5:29 pm

Day one purchase for sure. You guys at Mm are so creative.

November is going to be epic, with the ps4 coming out and Tearaway too.

Might have to quit my job just to have time to play the great games coming out.

But then how would I pay for these awesome things?
