Super Sidekicks 2/3 and NGCup 98 delisted from the Switch eShop


For some reason, the Neo Geo titles Super Sidekicks 2/3 and NGCup 98 have been removed from the Nintendo eShop. Neither SNK nor Nintendo have made a comment regarding the removal of these games, and this removal was only noticed after a Twitter user by the name of @EZ_takayoshi noticed their absence.


Thanks to thedreaminghawk for the heads-up!
