NIS America has announced that the release date for the Little Town Hero Big Idea Edition for has been delayed.

Originally released last year on Switch via the eShop, Little Town Hero tells the story of Axe—a young boy who dreams of seeing the outside world, but, due to the rules of his village, isn’t allowed to travel outside of his village’s borders. All of that changes, however, when one day a monster shows up and attacks the village. Upon confronting the monster, Axe realizes that he can utilize the powers of a mysterious stone within his possession to turn his ideas into attacks, and fights back—thus beginning a journey that will uncover many hidden truths.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
