We've all been in a mind-numbingly tense "Oh, god, Super Crate Box is about to release" state for a bit since hearing about its submission to Apple, and, sadly, we'll have to survive with this burden a wee bit longer. Developer Vlambeer has just announced that Super Crate Box won't appear on the App Store before Christmas as was expected. Instead, it'll launch this January 5th on the platform.

That's not too bad as far as release date pushes go. And besides, it's not like you'll have trouble finding something to bide your time with while you wait. As you've noticed by the look of our page the last couple of days, there are a lot of games, and a lot of new updates, to dig into. Go get'em Cowboy!

    The icon for the game has an iCade pictured. Hopffully it will have support for it. That would be awesome.

      Well, the trailer contains "iCade" at the end, so yes, I think the iCade will be supported.

    great  to see a release date. i remember when Ravenous Games(league of evil) announced they were working on Burrito Bison.then halfbot said they'd be handling Super Crate. such a long time ago. hopefully we'll see great updates and a release for burrito bison.

    Looks like an 8bit Knight cupcake game...

      Mostly because Muffin Knight got the gameplay from Super Crate Box.
      This one, being the original has sharper controls too.
