Kamiko is already available in Japan, but it’s slated for North America and Europe next week. To download the game, 411 MB of space is required. Look for it on April 27.


Update: Bumped to the top. Kamiko will also be out in North America next week, according to Nintendo’s website. Pricing is set at $4.99.

Original: Kamiko has been out on the Japanese Switch eShop since last week, and as you might know, the game has already been fully translated into English. However, if you don’t want to go through the trouble of dealing with the Japanese eShop, you’re in luck: the game will be released on the European eShop next week, on April 27th, for €4.99. A release date on the North American eShop hasn’t been confirmed yet, though it seems likely that it’ll be released there on the same day as well.

This week’s European Nintendo Downloads are as follows:

Switch Download

ACA NeoGeo Fatal Fury – €6.99 / £6.29
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap – €19.99 / £17.99

Wii U Download

Orbit – €1.49 / £1.39

We’ve known for a while now that Soldam: Bloom Declaration was going to be released outside Japan, and it seems like we’re now pretty close to that point. Today, the Japanese version was updated to version 1.1, and among some other changes, the game is now fully playable in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. Although it isn’t confirmed yet, this likely means that the game will be released on the European and North American Switch eShop pretty soon. If you don’t want to wait, simply download the game from the Japanese eShop and make sure to update the game to its latest version.
