Despite original statements to the contrary, NBA 2K18 does not have Amiibo support.

The digital version of the basketball simulation launched today on the eShop without Amiibo support as was previously rumored. A statement at a pre-release event also claimed the support would be available.

An issue with the game's Legend Gold (most expensive) edition in some countries has been resolved. Most notably found in Canada, the game's converted price tag of C$199.99 plus 5 - 15% sales tax (depending on the province) was preventing the game from being bought directly on the system due to the $200 eShop limit. The error has been resolved, and the web storefront was not affected.

I had no idea that there was a price limit on the eShop LOL, can't imagine it normally ever being an issue.

So am I the only person playing this game on the Switch?

Waiting for the physical version myself. We do have someone playing the game for review which should be available soon.

I bought it but haven't played it yet. And given how many Switch games I've bought and haven't played, and how many I intend to buy in the immediate future, I'm not sure when I'll actually get to this one.

I knew about the $200 limit for storing currency on the eShop, but I didn't think any game price would ever exceed it. That's a rather ridiculous price for a basketball game, ha ha.
