When Melty Blood: Type Lumina heads to Switch this month, it’ll be digital only in the west. However, there will be one way to pick up a physical version.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is confirmed to be releasing physically in Japan. Even better, English support is included. That means you can pick up a copy and play it on your Switch regardless of region since the system is region free.

Switch will be receiving Melty Blood: Type Lumina on September 30. Play-Asia has pre-orders here.

2K announced NBA 2K22 for Switch earlier this year, but we haven’t seen much in terms of gameplay, and especially when it comes to Switch. Now that the title is actually available, some players have started to upload footage online. That allows us to see how the Switch version holds up.

Here’s some information about NBA 2K22:

Maglam Lord has thus far only been released in Japan, but an English localization could be in the cards. A new rating for the game popped up recently on the USK. Going off of the listing, PQube will be handling publishing in the west.
