Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition has been available in the North American and European Wii U eShop since the new system's release but it is yet to show up in the Australian store.

We know the game was rated by the Australian Classification Board in February but we've not heard anything since then.

Well, it looks as though the wait will soon be over as WayForward Technologies has announced on its official blog that a new update has been finalised that will see the title expand into Australia and New Zealand.

The game itself has also been enhanced with the audio levels being rebalanced, while headphone support has also been improved. It'll also take up less space on your hard drive as the file size will be compressed by 40%.

On top of all that, WayForward has also added a new playable character in the form of Pixel Patty.

There's no official release date yet but Australia and New Zealand should soon be able to enjoy Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition.
