Australia's retail release for NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Trilogy is just three download codes in a box

Well here's a real downer for our friends in Australia. NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Trilogy is set to release in Australia on Marcy 15th, 2019, and you can buy a retail copy through EB Games. Here's the thing, though. This retail copy is literally just a game box with download codes. Yes, you get a physical box for your purchase, but on the inside are three codes for the three different games included in this release.

Things get even more frustrating when you dive deeper. The NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Trilogy takes up just a tad over 18GB of space, which means it barely misses out on fitting into the standard 16GB Switch game card. More annoying still, Bandai Namco ponied up the cash for a retail release in Japan, and that version includes all three games on one game card!

Why do you use “just” in the headline? RMC, I understand that this is your website and all, but can you please try to leave your personal bias out of the articles or at least add a disclaimer that it’s just your personal opinion?

Why do you have to shade the entire article as if this is a bad thing? As with anything in life, some of us like, some of us don’t.

As long as what he’s posting is factually correct I don’t think there’s anything wrong with RMC injecting personal bias. We should be able to cope with someone else’s opinion and don’t need disclaimers.

Wow, that's ridiculous. The person above might be okay with having download as the only option, but I'd be really upset over this if I were interested in the game. Japan having it all on a single card makes it sooooo much worse.

I heard the person that made this decision was just three wallabies in a human suit.

The japanese game is smaller because they don't include the english dub. Ergo it is smaller than 16 GB and it fits in the still expensive mid size card...in a parallel world we would have this note of the blogger of this site angry they included only english voices even though the PS4 release had all the voices on the blu ray.

Yes, it is the biggest game in my SD card right now but I for one am glad for the release becasue a) I have never played the Ninja Storm games before (the optimal target of this release), b) I like to play with the japanese dub and c) the game was very cheap in my country eshop for the digital only release, which wouldnt happen with a retail release (60 bucks at least with a cart the size of 16 GB).

March will now be known as Marcy.

Thats not very cash money of you, bandai.

Disclaimer: I find this very annoying. While the Switch is selling great and gets a lot of praise, some of it deserved, it also gets a lot of slack. This must be among the top reasons as to why. It has to be the worst platform in terms of getting proper physical releases. Things are supposed to get better with technology, not worse.
