The late, delayed-by-travel edition adds a new feature

By special request this week, we've added a 3rd region to the report as Japan('s Switch games only) are now available. As a reminder, setting up a foreign eShop account is simple and easy for the Switch.

North America's biggest deal this week is actually mutliplatform, as Blaster Master Zero makes its way to the Switch and 3DS. For those who dropped $70 or $90 on the Pro Controller, note that the Switch version will be getting a patch to support it next week. We'll have a review up for it around eShop update time from Perry.

In other North American news, a bunch of last week's releases from Europe will drop with the touchscreen-only VOEZ and Arc System Works's farm sim Frontier Days; Founding Pioneers plus the Arcade Archives titles. There's also a Wii U Virtual Console release in the form of Bomberman 64.

Europe is now releasing its PR on Thursday mornings, so we don't have as much notice, but Bomberman 64 has been announced for Wii U VC. As well, a special BOXBOY series demo will be released containing levels from all three games ahead of his 23 March farewell. Mario Sports Superstars also gets its first cap.

The sales spreadsheet for North America will likely be delayed in updating as the updater is en route to Boston for PAX East this weekend, and an unfortunate correction for our Canadian viewers from last week as Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove has been increased to $33.99.

Are any of these NeoGeo games good? I've heard NeoGeo made a lot of crap back in the day.
