Crush3D & Shinobi 3DS delayed due to 3DS not selling as expected

Update: Confirmed by SEGA on Twitter

Release Dates Confirmed for CRUSH3D and SHINOBI ON 3DS – Shinobi will be released on 11/11/11, while CRUSH3D will be released on 17/2/12

Original Story Below:

The 3DS isn’t selling horribly, but it isn’t setting the world on fire for a Nintendo handheld. 3rd parties are starting to notice and one of these publishers is SEGA, who delayed Crush 3D.

“…now we’re finding that everyone is not knowing what platform is going to succeed – we did our first 3DS title – we got Crush onto that, but we had to delay the release of that because of the success of the platform.” – Zoe Mode’s studio head Paul Mottram

Zoe Mode is getting another chance to make Crush a success after it failed to gain an audience on the PSP. I think they should worry about advertising their title more than they should worry about the adoption rate on the 3DS.
