It was actually you that convinced me to buy it, after you posted it in Facebook with the link. Twenty pound was to good to pass up and besides Iike the Neo Pocket. I heard the last boss is Lori in drag

You have to use a super move to win a fight and if you miss you have to build up the super bar again.
Seriously one of the worst fighting games ever made

Well Mum bought me a Switch for Christmas and I had Namco Museum, SNK Classics and Snk Heroines as presents from family.

I bought Night Slashers and want to buy a few download games but unsure what. Thinking Katamari Damacy and Ninja Warriors again again. But could anybody recommend any similar jap games. Not interested in driving sports games.
Buy everything Capcom released ;)

But seriously, give the Capcom Brawler collection a look (the one with Final Fight, Battle Circuit, Captain Commando etc.) a try. I've gotten loads of hours of fun out of it.
Monster Boy is a brilliant platformer with Metroidvania elements and is well worth a play. Just 100%ed it myself, took a good 20 hours which is a pretty decent length.
There's loads of other SNK/Capcom/other arcade games released on Switch digitally now, so plenty of stuff to try if you want KOF, Metal Slug, Mega Man, Street Fighter etc.
Also some decent Nintendo arcade games - Donkey Kong + Jr, Punch Out (the arcade game) etc.

Did this ever get a physical release on switch? Really want to try it out but try and stick to physical games only.

I picked up starlink battle for atlas for £20.00 over Christmas, cant believe how quickly that game dropped in price.

Yes, though only in Japan, but it supports English and the Switch is region free. I imported my physical copy at launch and it cost just over £25 including shipping, which I thought was fair for a physical copy of a top game

The Capcom Brawler Collection was a day 1 purchase for me on the PS4 being my favourite genre and having some of my favourite games. Warriors of Fate is terrible the only bad belt scroller that Capcom have done. I know it will
Never happen due to license issues but I would love to see Alien vs Predator.

Two friends bought and finished Monsterboy and they keep telling me to buy it, if you recommend it as well I really should take the plunge. It seems a lot of money for a Digital game.

What are your thoughts on Megaman 11 and Battke Princess Madelyn? The reviews I read of Madyln said its a Metroidvania game with no signposting make it soul crushingly hard. And that the extra arcade game was what Madelyn should have been, an old school ghouls and ghosts that was most importantly fun.

I know everybody says Mario Odyssey is the best game ever, but I never got on with the Mario games only the Gameboy Titles and Super Mario 3D World. I just found Peach so much easier to use with her floating jump as there was more leeway with using her. Same with Wario found him a much easier character to use.

Is Resident Evil 2 getting a Switch Release otherwise I will buy the PS4 version,

Any news on a Bloodstained?

I'm sure they have it but I got mine from Nin-Nin-Game.com, I got a shipping option that comes through Amazon France or something, to avoid any import tax direct from Japan.

There were a few versions but I just got the standard edition as all I wanted was the game. For what it's worth it does come with a reversable box sleave but I think the default side is the prettier anyway. It also has the only Switch physical manual I've come across so far, though it is only a couple of pages and it's all in Japanese.

Sadly not, it will be getting the Resident Evil 0, 1 and 4 HD releases though.

That's a shame a portable version would have been superb. I pretty much Resident Evil HD to the point I'm fed up with it, and Chris was no fun to use, Resident Zero something about that game I can't get on with.. Wish they would release Resident 3 which is my favourite game in the series

Japan sort of got RE7 on Switch, but its a Stream Only version of the game. If Capcom ever decided on releasing RE2 Remake on Switch, it would probably be another Streaming version again since I doubt the system would be capable of running the game without some real work.

If you're interested you can also play the two RE Revelations games on the Switch, which are pretty good. The second one would likely require a micro-SD card though as the file size is well over 20 GB.
