Australia rejoice! Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition is Heading Down Under Soon

Posted by Andy Green

WayForward announces an update is on the way

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.

What are your thoughts on this, Australia? Are you looking forward to finding Patricia Wagon in the eShop? Let us know in the comments section below.

Why do us Kiwis have to suffer because of the stupid ratings in Australia?

@lazyinsu If that was the case we would have had it two to three months ago. Clearly this was a dev or publisher decision.

We still dont have Ninja Gaiden 3: Razors Edge either (which i wanted to buy), yet the PS3/360 versions.are....
Im starting to think that Australia doesnt give a flaming toss about the Wii U, which sucks for nintendo fans such as myself.

@lazyinsu We share the same problem, I can't believe devs decide to do this to our region all the time. The rest of the world doesn't know or care when we don't get certain games localised and we suffer quietly because devs can't be bothered taking the risk or the same effort to release games on time or at all.
If devs care more about Europe and America, then I'll just import and download from those regions.

@RetroGBHippie92 that's the thing, I download all my stuff on the Europe server from here in New Zealand. But then, the numbers show that no one in NZ and Aus are downloading developers games because of it. We really need to get games when everyone else does.

@MeWario I thought the same thing too, it's a lose-lose situation, If we download from our own server we have very little choice and in turn no one cares to download much because of it and if we download from the Europe server, we risk games making it to our own region. The whole situation around the Australian Ratings is still brassing me off and the fact that both AU and NZ have Taxes surrounding video game sale etc annoys the hell outta me. Make it Stop!!! :(

@RetroGBHippie92 at least we're all in this together haha. When New Super Mario Bros 2 came out it was $80 at it's cheapest here in NZ, I changed my location to Spain, downloaded it off there server and it cost me $60! There really is nothing to gain from buying or downloading locally. Even our club Nintendo rewards are garbage.

I've lost all interest in this title due to the lengthy delays and broken promises. The fact it still doesn't have a release date means I'm not holding my breath for it to arrive soon. They should at the very least give us a decent sale on the game.

Which is why I get my games from the UK E-Shop and dont wait for the AU. Happening way too often this is, just like Trine 2.
