Oh damn, that's right, Boxboy's this week. Still kind of bummed the amiibo isn't coming over, nor that physical collection, but considering how late it is in the 3DS' life span, I'm sure it probably wasn't worth the time/money/effort.

The game was, but the EU PR said that to unlock the content that was previously received for scanning the Qbby amiibo, now need to have save data from both the first & second game.

Question for the thread:

Would the Switch be capable of handling 3DS Virtual Console? I've heard mixed things about whether that would be feasible.

(Right now I'm looking for if they could, not if they should)

It seems relatively likely. The biggest obstacle will likely be the exotic GPU. The rest of the system is pretty straightforward.

I remember them having 1 2 Switch digital as well. So I guess it's random, cross your fingers.

Played puyo/tetris from JP eshop as a demo. I am super good at Puyo but Tetris is where fails me. Game is so addicting but I think I'll wait for US version so it is easier to explain to everyone who plays with me.

Though the voices might be fun.

I reviewed it - there's low difficulty CPU options and an option to show what the legal moves are, but no explicit tutorial.

It's great, but as a software developer I found it to be a little bit too easy though.
My only really gripe was loops, counters and comparisons can be a bit fiddly to implement sometimes.
Each task has 2 optimisation challenges, where you have to solve the puzzle in a set number of lines of code or executed lines, I had the most fun doing these.
If you've got no experience programming and enjoy puzzles you're in for a treat.

So unless there's an announcement in the PR, it looks like North America won't get a Wii U VC game this week which would be the first week skipped for at least a new Wii download since September 10, 2015 (79 weeks in a row).

That was just for Europe. It is strangely MIA for NA thus far, though I imagine it to be some kind of "available now" fodder for an upcoming Direct that's specific to NA.

Lots of good indie titles are up for sale in Europe! Too bad I just bought Mutant Mudds and Xeodrifter a few weeks ago. Might buy Crimson Shroud, Picross e7, and Steamworld Heist though.

Capcom sale too.

But now it's time for Boxboy.

Nah, they definitely announced it for March 23rd in North America, but it's been stealth-delayed and everything related to it (gamepage, tweet, trailer) deleted.
