SquareMEal posted a topic in Nintendo SwitchLego City Undercover is set to launch at retail on April 4th in the U.S. but some stores have their copies a little early. An employee at one such store took a look at the box for the Switch version and found a surprise, that the physical cart of the game does not include the full copy of the game. Instead, Switch owners will have to use an internet connection to download nearly 13GB of the game (the total game is 22GB). This comes shortly after some third party titles were revealed to be more expensive on the Switch. As of this writing, there has been no word from Warner Bros., the publisher on the download requirement, but current speculation believes that they chose a lower storage Switch cart for production to save costs. Such speculation has fueled fears over if this will be the norm for 3rd party Switch games in the future. The Switch only comes with 32GB of memory on board, with room for microSD cards to expand on that (for a separate fee). The mandatory 13GB download will take nearly half of that space. Update: Warner Bros. responded to the confusion with an official statement, as follows. This statement states that the box information is incorrect and that the full game will be on the cart with no need to download an update to get the full experience. That said, it doesn't explain how so much information was just plain incorrect on the box or how the game is now half the size of the original release from 2013. Source 1 Source 2 Source Update 1
A traveling orchestra that performs Zelda music live has started selling tickets for their 2017 tour! I wanted to go last time but real life circumstances prevented that from happening; however, I should be able to go this year. Anyone else thinking of going?
The Nintendo Switch port of Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth + was confirmed last week to launch on Friday, March 17th. Nicalis confirmed the new release date, which was originally slated for March 3rd alongside the Switch launch until a last minute delay, on their Twitter with some photos of the games being packaged. Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth + will retail for $40 USD for both physical and digital versions, and includes all DLC packs released for the game thus far. The physical release will also come with a sticker sheet and a 20 page colored manual, but has only been confirmed for the launch copies. [MEDIA=twitter]839560268879298560[/MEDIA]
SquareMEal posted a topic in Nintendo SwitchBinding of Isaac: Afterbirth + for the Nintendo Switch has been confirmed to no longer be launching on March 3rd, as was previously listed. Binding of Isaac developer, Nicalis, announced today that Afterbirth + will not make the previously announced March 3rd release date due to "issues way beyond our control." It no longer has a specific date, but is still expected to launch in March. The silver lining is that the launch edition of the game will be coming with more stickers and a short, full color instruction booklet. Source
