I fully expect them to meet release in 2018. Worst comes to worst, they likely will release additional features in later expansions ala Shovel Knight.
Agreed. The reason this project was delayed was mainly due it not meeting the standards that Igarashi felt it should be at, so instead of pushing out something that was below par, it was a complete overhaul to make it better than it was.
Of course that also means that it probably won't release unless it's pretty much fully complete, so the latter probably won't be practical since it's about quality, and not speed for this project, which I certainly appreciate, but still sucks waiting. :(
