    If I had a switch I would definitely be looking forward to buy sonic mania.

  • Roto Prime

    While everyone is playing Sonic Mania….I will be playing Troll and I ;_____; Please come out hard copy soon Sonic Mania!!!!!!

  • Exy

    So they really went with the racial slur for the Flip Wars title. Didn’t think they had the guts.

    • ジョシュ

      what are u talking about? we all know what they meant with FLIP wars and it’s not about the racial slur ur talking about.

    • jbmindtrick

      What are you talking about?

      • Exy

        It’s a derogatory term for people from Pacific Island and Asian island nations, meaning “Funny Little Island People.” The F is of course flexible. There’s a lot of them on both East and West Coasts and I imagine some of them will not be thrilled to be in a war.

        • AquaBat

          They’ve already tried to cater to every slur, and-shocker-it didn’t work anyway. If a game is about flipping tiles, “flip” is gonna be in the name, it’s not really their fault that the word’s been coopted as a slang insult.

          • Gregory Weagle

            Then why not call it Flicker Wars or Battle Sports Flicker, since the original Japanese name translates to Flicker? Is Flicker somehow MORE offense than Flip?

        • RoadyMike

          That has to be the most ridiculous derogatory term and explanation of it I’ve ever heard. I will never see this game
          or the word flip the same way ever again. My gut still hurts from laughing
          Offense is never given, only taken. The game obviously isn’t referring to that term and only idiots would get offended by it

          • Exy

            I’m sure I’m the only one in the world who even noticed this. I don’t even care that much about it. I just want people to know it’s there.

    • Gregory Weagle

      Which is stupid because the original Japanese name is flicker. So why not call it Flicker Wars?

  • Lord Drieg

    I can’t find the demo for Monster Hunter Stories. Do I need to search for it in the eShop, or is it gonna be available later?

    • Yolkghost

      Probably had to wait until 12 pm est when the eshop updates. Try now.

  • TruExtent

    Wait, Sonic Mania is under Switch Retail… DID WE MISS SOMETHING? Or are they mistaking the Collector’s Edition that only comes with a download code?

  • Blake Good

    Missed opportunity to release the Sonic Advance trilogy on the Wii U VC, to celebrate the release of Sonic Mania. Oh well, at least we got 2 TG-16 VC games this week.

  • Gregory Weagle

    I did a little accounting here; and Nintendo Switch just reached 100 games released in North America in five months and one week. This surpasses the record for the milestone reached in the shortest period of time, previously held by GBA which was around six months which Switch hasn’t had a Christmas season yet since GBA was released in June and Switch was released in March.
