I hate to disappoint anyone counting down the days until Shin Chuka Taisen: Michael to Meimei no Bouken comes out for the Wii, but it’s been delayed. Starfish who is the developer of the tilt controlled shmup had the release window set for August. It’s September and there is no sign of the game in sight.
