@TalonMan pretty bummed to hear about the Omake Books LE/CE of Little Nightmares. Ordered, but haven't received it yet. May try to cancel if it's just a loose book and the game.

REALLY bummed Play-Asia listed the NA/US version of Little Nightmares. Thinking I may have to just keep a list of import titles from now on and wait 3-6 months before importing anything else (to be sure the publisher doesn't change their mind about releasing in the US).

I have had the same thought because I was burned on Aqua and Snow Moto along with Voez later this year. The one I am watch is Neo Atlas that may come but unsure.

Does anyone know if you can claim Gold Points for games that don't match the region on your account? I should be getting Count Lucanor, Human Fall Flat, and the Flame in the Flood soon and I was curious if I'd be able to snag a few points for those or not

Me too brother. Aqua Moto, Snow Moto, and VOEZ all got me. And now Little Nightmares (unless Play Asia cancels the US listing). Getting the third degree from all of these publishers. It'd be great if they were transparent and just told us.

Thankfully I was able to sell VOEZ and break even (still have Aqua and Snow Moto). I bought in to Neo Atlas, so I personally have my fingers crossed it doesn't get a US release (which means it probably will lol). I think an ongoing list and holding out on imports is the best approach for now with all of the indecisiveness at the publisher-level.

Considering Bandai Namco never responded to my inquiry about the Gamestop cancellation, I'd lose my s--t and spam their customer support to complain lol.

yeah I got a non-answer from them about the japanese version having english options too. They told me to contact the japanese branch of their company...like oh yes let me, a person asking about english because he can't read or write japanese, contact their japanese branch(no provided webpage or email address even mind you), and ask them in japanese if their game has english. Brilliant customer support.

@eightbit Welcome to the crew and great first post! Look forward to interacting with you

@eightbit thanks for the tip on the gold coins thing for those interested. And yes, this is why I had wanted to find out if Little Nightmares had english in the JP version, because on Amazon it was like $30 and figured I could have it ship out with a few other things I had ready to ship from japan anyhow. $20 is a big gap!

I suspect that if play asia has little nightmares for physical release with an ESRB rating it might be for the UAE/Singapore region, which is this sort of nebulous region that gets special allocations and is a blend of EU/NA regions. Good example I have is that I have a UAE copy of Ocarina of Time 3D that has an ESRB rating but uses the EU box art.

yeah since there is no "standard" version of flashback and it is 30,000 copies I'm not too concerned there will be an issue. Yes it is a pretty old game, and thus why I don't see many people wanting a copy. But yeah amazon IS amazon. Lets see what happens. But either way, the EU version, again, is oddly cheaper.

On a side note is a 25$ Axiom Verge Collectors edition (multiverse) worth it. I am not sure because I am not BIG on indies but the game seems ok and the one person who made it seems really passionate for making it!

Axiom Verge is my favorite indie game on the Switch.

If you enjoy Metroidvanias like Cave Story or Steamworld Dig, don't skip Axiom Verge.

I agree 100% and also would chime in to check out Mummy Demastered although it is only in the eshop. I'd be 1st in line if it ever gets a physical release.

Was to be released physically as the last game on the Wii U but Nintendo put a halt on that. I think they want BOTW to be last.

I have been on the fence regarding MotoGP 18. It is one of the more expensive import titles, but it looks cool and I don't want to miss out on it. Does anyone have any insight on the track record of Milestone bring their releases to NA? Not sure if I should hold out...

Not the best track record. MXGP3 and Monster Energy Supercross. Both games are average at best. However, I'd argue that the Moto series is their best. Although I haven't played a game in the series for about a decade, I remember the game doing an excellent job at delivering a sense of speed that other racing games don't do as well.

Could not resist the offer and ordered the Collector edition of Axiom Verge. This is my first indie game ever.

@Zuljaras It's a fantastic game and will be your gateway drug to other indie games on the Switch.

Nice! Although Amazon has been awful in regards to how they package special editions, that won't stop me from canceling my standard version preorder in favor of this premium edition.

Chances are good I would've missed this if you hadn't pointed it out. Usually I'm content with browsing up until $59.99. After that, all you usually see is third party sellers looking to scalp import titles.

Agreed; my copy of Shantae came in a damn bubble mailer dented as hell. I returned it, and the replacement also arrived in a bubble, a bit bruised on one corner, but nowhere near as bad. I just gave up and decided to keep the second one.

Just got my copies of Little Nightmares and Super Chariot. In case nobody purchased it, Super Chariot has a unique cardboard sleeve. It confused me for a second at first glance. 6 games away from having 100 physical on Switch!
