Umihara Kawase Fresh! not available on the Switch eShop in North America or Europe

Where are you?

Umihara Kawase Fresh's retail release was published this week, and customers have received their copies. In a bit of a strange situation, the eShop version in North America and Europe is not available. It's not often that we see a physical copy release, but the eShop version nowhere to be found. Hopefully this situation is remedied soon. We'll try to get comment from Nicalis on the matter.
