I believe my wife is finally going to allow me to buy a Switch after Christmas, so I have a couple of questions. I know this may not be a popular stance here, but I prefer buying physical simply because I can only afford to buy new games by selling my old ones that I am done with. My first question is: is importing worth it? Off the top of my head, I am interested in I am Setsuna and Syberia that aren't available in America, but are these games re-sellable here? And would it even be worth it after paying shipping and the like? Then my second question is: is there a list of current eShop only games that are confirmed to be getting a physical release at some point so I should hold off on them? I see the list on the first page mentions Rocket League and Wonder Boy, so maybe that list already includes them, but I don't know if that is all of them or not. Thanks for any help.

@Xyphon22 Importing is a lot easier than you'd expect. While I am Setsuna's price has shot up, you can buy Syberia on the US Amazon for $40 with free shipping, and $30 for the second one. As for trading them in, I have no idea whether GameStop will accept them or not.

As for titles with physical releases? The Count Lucanor, Yooka-Laylee, Rocket League, Worms WMD, Yooko's Island Express, Overcooked, Wonder Boy, Voez (JP only so far) have all been confirmed to get physical releases next year, and LRG has confirmed they'll be releasing several Switch titles as well.

@SKTTR Are you sure The Long Reach is for Switch? They only have PS Vita and PS4 listed as far as I can see.

@link3710 Thanks for the info. I have seen that I am Setsuna has been on a number of eShop sales for around $25 dollars, so it just seems like after buying physical and paying for shipping, any amount of money I could sell it for may not make up how much more I payed in the first place. And Gamestop's website does not mention either of those games, which makes me think they do not accept them. I usually sell my old games on Amazon, though, so that is not a big deal, I'm just wondering if people will actually buy them on Amazon or not when they see it is from Japan (or Europe in Syberia's case). Thanks for the eShop list, too. I'm interested in most of those. I just wish LRG would confirm some titles.

@SKTTR - Looks like I'll be keeping an eye on this for a bit much like Bayonetta in Japan.

Is the "sold out" sign just a precursor and hasnt been on sale yet?

@link3710 The Switch version of The Long Reach is still in development and planned for retail release around February.

@Paraka I think so.

A new publisher, it seems too, compared to the Wii U/3DS deluxe versions, as well as the Switch regular/Wii U Japanese release.

I will update this when Half Life 3 arrives. [Started 17/11/2015]

I just wanted to really thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for making such an accessible list of previously released games and upcoming games. I know it's usually a thankless job... so just know that some of us really appreciate it.

@revolutionika For a moment I thought we were getting a successor to Police 911 from Konami and I was excited there.

I thought Yooka-Laylee not getting a physical release? Are there any new updates that I might've missed? I'd love to see a physical copy of it on the Switch

@Korosanbo There's no word of a physical release now, but Playtonic has talked about considering it. Other platforms got physical release, so it makes sense.

OCD = Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

I thought I was insane, having to purchase every single physical edition I possibly can (deluxe/collection/special edition, where available) - but then you one-up me, by saying you actually sell back your previously played games in order to re-purchase them sealed?!?!?

I mean - that's AWESOME, don't get me wrong!!! But definitely a new level of collector insanity, that I haven't quite reached yet... ...and I feel ashamed.

@TalonMan Well you got me on the every physical edition. I'm only doing regular copies unless there is a special edition available.
