Death's Gambit: Afterlife arrived on the Switch eShop a couple of months ago, bringing the expanded version of the souls-like to eager Ninty gamers. If you like the look of it but really like building up your physical collection, though, you may want to hold fire.

It's getting a rather nice physical edition in Q1 2022, with Europe confirmed at the moment. It'll have a special box, an art book and a double-sided poster.
