€35?! #Switch Tax Strikes Again

The Football Manager is superior to EA's manager game which was discontinued a few years ago... but sadly due to EA's license agreement with the German Football Association the SEGA Football Manager is not allowed to be released in Germany... and the eShop version is region locked. D:

Is this coming out as Physical? Cuz makes you wonder why the Switch Tax was applied when the card cost is always cited...

Is this the full game ? Not a mobile phone version ?

The gameplay seems to show a port of the premium iPad version (and with premium I mean a €20 app in the AppStore) (so the "Switch Tax" is €15)

No, I believe it's the tablet version with the added "3D match engine". They describe it as a "streamlined Football Manager experience" which is a little troubling as is the description of "Football Manager Touch 2018 on Nintendo Switch is the most immersive football simulation ever created for Nintendo players." Why mention specifically "for Nintendo players"? It's not going to be the definitive version and reminds me of how EA talked about FIFA 18 on Switch even though it was a lesser version and missing features. Yet, they want and expect us to pay more, not forgetting that it's been available elsewhere for some time.

The PC version would not work on any console.
