Harvey Birdman Delayed

Capcom announced that Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, the forthcoming game based on the adult swim show, has been pushed back from its November 13 release into sometime next year. This was confirmed by the company’s senior strategy director Christian Svensson in a forum post.

“The game is and has been finished, submitted and approved, however we felt releasing the game on the same day 112 other SKUs released was not ideal for its chances. Retail buyers agreed,” he wrote in the post. “As such, we’ve opted to move the title out into a slightly cleaner release window. This will allow us to get on more shelves, do a bit more outreach to the media and hopefully get the fans in on the action a bit more.”

The game will be out on the PS2, PSP and Wii. The PlayStation versions will cost $29.99, with the Wii going for $39.99. All versions are identical, bar customized controls for the Wii’s motion-sensitive controllers.

The videos will be available in both 720p and 480p resolutions. TV programs will be put up for sale, whereas movies will be provided on a rental basis.

Content to be live by the end of the year includes Robot Chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force from Adult Swim; CSI, Survivor and Star Trek from CBS; South Park and Chappelle’s Show from Comedy Central; Pimp My Ride from MTV; along with a bunch of other shows popular with the Xbox demographic.

No pricing information has been announced as of yet. The above, and more, will be available in North America starting November 22.
