Nintendo Downloads - March 23, 2017

Includes the end of a long, long streak.

This is a week of catch-up for both North America and Europe on the downloads front before things kick into Switch gear again next week. North America is getting New Frontier Days and Othello on Switch, and I reviewed the no-frills board game. Meanwhile, Daan reviewed the week's sole retail release in Mario Sports Superstars and you'll definitely want to scope that one out before going in.

On the retro front the Switch gets ready for the Masters in a couple of weeks with Neo Turf Masters, for my money the best console golf game in history. Notably, that appears to be the only retro release of the week, as the Wii U Virtual Console is missing a week for the first time in 80 weeks - the last miss was the week Super Mario Maker came out.

Europe is playing catch-up as well, as the Tomorrow Corporation games make their way to European systems. There's also a farewell there, as we bid BOXBOY a fond adieu. Sadly, the Amiibo appears to be import only.

Talkback

So I went to download "I am Setsuna" on my Switch today and it's no longer on the eShop. Did anyone else notice this? Btw it is still on the web browser storefront for purchase, and as an aside, I discovered that the cartridge Japanese version is going for $60-$70 USD and it includes English and French subs. Might go with this one simply for the opportunity to recover some of the cost later down the road.


Edit: The cartridge version prices are from Amazon and Ebay, new condition with free shipping.

It looks like it scrolled off the recent releases, but it shows up in a search for the same price (it shows "Purchased" for me).

Ok thanks. This storefront is only temporary right? I hope Nintendo gets a smarter storefront than PS and Xbox. Keeping DLC in a separate category from games would be a breath of fresh air.
