Match Game: Square Enix tax in Canada is so disgusting, Ephraim tried to (blank).

Although by volume or price you'd think Lost Sphear is the big release of the week, this is a week where it's worth thinking smaller. Like with Celeste, the game that charmed us all with its appearance in the Nintendo Direct two weeks ago, but may have a big number of its own coming. Or maybe you're into possible lawsuit games, in which case ChromaGun came out on Monday.

There's also four relevant games from the retro front this week: a couple of arcade scrolling shooters from the Archives not provided by Hamster, or Hamster's double header. World Heroes 2 is yet another SNK fighter, but longtime NES fans will recognize Kid Niki: Radical Ninja. The 80s were weird, what can I say.

Pity Europe, for they get the sequel to Suspension Railroad Simulator on Wii U this week while the rest of the West waits a week. On the Japanese storefront, there's some familiar titles as well as an entry in a genre I've dabbled in thanks to other handhelds. As the name implies, The Men of Yoshiwara Kikuya is a romance VN, better known as an otome game.
