Atlus broke the bad news to Zoids fan(s) that its strategic RPG Zoids Assault for the Xbox 360 would be delayed to September. It also released a batch of new screenshots to, in its own words, "draw attention away from the game's brief delay." The press release continued to be surprisingly frank.

"Zoids Assault is going to slip out of late August and into early September - the 9th to be exact... Hey, are these new Zoids Assault screenshots? These are great! Let's focus on these instead," pleaded Aram Jabbari, Assistant Manager of Sales and PR, holding a set of awesome new Zoids Assault screenshots above his head.

I didn't write that last paragraph. Atlus did. Here are new screenshots.
