Nicalis has been a roll with physical versions of Switch games. The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ got things going earlier this year. Then Nicalis followed up with Cave Story+ in June.
In the months ahead, Nicalis is planning a number of new Switch games. The End is Nigh and Blade Strangers should be getting physical releases since both boxarts have already been posted. It also looks like Ittle Dew 2+ and Tiny Barbarian DX are receiving the same treatment, based on Amazon listings.
Ittle Dew+ and Tiny Barbarian DX, along with Blade Strangers, can be pre-ordered on Amazon here.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Switch has somewhat of a troubled history with regards to its European release, which has suffered several delays. Back in April, publisher Headup Games announced that the game would launch in Europe (and Australia) in Q2 2017 – but since Q2 is ending tomorrow, that clearly isn’t happening. However, it seems like we may finally have a concrete release date now – Just For Games, who are involved with the distribution of the game in Europe, sent out a tweet announcing that manufacturing of the physical version has started and that the game would launch on September 14th.
