The lightest release schedule of 2019, no doubt.
Recovered from all the sales yet?
Well, a bunch of them fly off this week, so there's that. But we're actually getting a bit of a new game reprieve this week, with just sixteen games for NA. Fitness Boxing is the big one, but we're also getting another in the Switch's burgeoning cat game genre.
Most of the stuff came out in Europe last week, though.
Yeah, basically. At least the Archives are mostly new. Fighter's History is just legally distinct enough from Street Fighter II that Data East managed to win a copyright infringement lawsuit, and there's also Ragnagard from HAMSTER.
Is there literally nothing but the Archives game for Japan this week?
Yep! They're taking the week off otherwise.
And on behalf of the NWR staff, we want to wish you all the best in 2019, and look forward to an announcement shortly of some import.
