Magicka Delayed until January 2011

The awesome looking action-rpg Magicka has been delayed until January 2011. On the positive side, Arrowhead and Paradox Interactive have decided to go down the route of announcing this through two fairly amusing videos – using Magicka’s gameplay to ‘explain’ what happened. The other good news is that the game will only cost $9.99. Get your robes ready for some multiplayer co-op spell-casting in January!

Managing Editor of ManaPool, Peter lives in York, UK and is a great fan and master of turn-based strategy games. If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.

    Aww poop. But I do love the manner in which Paradox decided to announce this news, and am always grateful when publishers decide to delay rather than release a buggy game. Kudos guys!

    Can’t wait for this to be out. We’ll certainly arrange some sessions here with the Mana Pool team!
