@Kawkstege Some eshop games are not playable until the afternoon of the release date, this may be one of them.

I really wished they would tell you what time you'll be able to play them. I was hoping to play it for a bit before bed. :/

Yea me too, hopefully its playablr later today. I tried play it at 00.00 today aswell but then it didnt work and i figured it might be some timezone crap, but ive always been able to play early next morning so I got a bit scarred it didnt work straight away. Ill keep my fingers crossed that it will work during the afternoon

Yeah, me too..

I still can't quite believe it to be honest, you pay up front (for something that ain't even tangible) they were quite happy to take my money 3+ weeks ago in fact & now they've the audacity/disrespect to pull this BS!

Lol, sucka!

No-one made you do it, and they never said what time today it would be playable. You bring it on yourself.

Don't most games pre-loaded from the eShop unlock at noon the day of release? I guess it can be annoying but meh, nothing major imo.. I pre-loaded Cuphead aswell, cant wait to play it after work.

Now playing: SEGA Genesis Collection, Starlink, Final Fantasy 7

@Kawkstege @Skint unless they specifically say you can play a pre-ordered game on midnight it's always unlocked at the time the eShop usually updates. Should be 16:00 for you, Kawstege. So.. In a little under 10 minutes

What a beautiful signature.

The same is happening to me. I waked up at 4 a.m. just to play Cuphead and as you can already tell, I was more than disappointed. Looks like a great game and I’m really excited to try it out.

Normal eshop update has happened and Cuphead is the only 18th April game still in the Coming Soon section.

@Grumblevolcano Oh, that’s too bad, I was really excited to play Cuphead, at least I have Joker in Smash to keep me occupied while the game doesn’t come out.

It’s currently 11:30 EST and still can’t play, this is so frustrating.

I had this same issue with Toejam and Earl on launch day.

Don't worry, it'll probably unlock in the next few hours.
