With a hefty price

In a very rare occasion, we saw a Switch game release physically before it hit the eShop.

That changes today, as the game is now available to purchase digitally. The game is priced at $40, the same as the retail version.

Where are you?

Umihara Kawase Fresh's retail release was published this week, and customers have received their copies.

Hopefully this situation is remedied soon. We'll try to get comment from Nicalis on the matter.
