After recently launching on Switch, Infinite Minigolf has gone missing on the North American eShop. It’s still up in both Europe and Japan, however. It’s currently unclear why Infinite Minigolf was taken down stateside.

Infinite Minigolf was originally on track for July 25. It ended up releasing a few days later instead – specifically July 28.

Thanks to Jared C for the tip.

The King of Fighters 2000 made its way to the eShop today as the newest NeoGeo title for Switch. Have a look at some footage below.

DrinkBox surprised us this week by stealthily putting Severed on Switch. Fortunately, the process of porting the game over was very smooth.

DrinkBox co-founder and Severed producer Graham Smith told 4colorrebellion:

“Bringing the game to the Switch was an extremely smooth process, in fact, it was one of the easiest releases we’ve ever done as a studio. The only major difference between the Wii U and Switch versions of Severed is that now you can take it with you on the go!”

DrinkBox isn’t talking about future Switch games at this time. Smith did note though, “I can say that now that our game engine is running on the Switch, it should make it easier for us to bring games to the platform in the future.”
