When Hot Gimmick: Cosplay-Jan came to the Japanese eShop this month, the banner image used was a bit controversial. This was primarily due to the outfit and pose from one of the depicted characters.

Perhaps in response to the controversy, the main eShop image for Hot Gimmick: Cosplay-Jan has been changed. It’s not clear if Nintendo forced the picture swap, or if Zerodiv specifically requested it. Nintendo did sign off on the eShop page initially, and we’ve seen cases in which developers have changed eShop images in the past.

To compare, this was the original banner:

As promised, Hot Gimmick: Cosplay-Jan has released on the Japanese Switch eShop. It originally came out on the PlayStation 2 in 2004.

Here’s a trailer:

Zerodiv has dated its next classic game for Switch. Hot Gimmick: Cosplay-Jan launches on July 5 for 2,500 yen. Based on past releases, there’s a chance for it to debut worldwide at the same time on Switch.

Sometimes games see a surprise release on Switch without a mention in the official weekly Nintendo Download report. That happened once again this week, as Dragon Blaze landed on the North American eShop without any prior announcement. It was made available in Japan one day prior, so this isn’t too surprising.

Dragon Blaze is the latest arcade title from Zerodiv. We have the following English overview:
