I'm hesitant of this... Are we sure it's not digital and or that it's legit?

I bought my copy directly from them through Amazon when they were selling there.  It was also $20 cheaper back then.  It is the publisher that set up the store site was far as I know.

Yeah these guys are selling above the MSRP and against the wishes of the IP holder. Hopefully they get sued in oblivion.

I have physical copies of the game, so it's definitely been produced

Not sure if this game really belongs in this thread, but I guess it is an obscure physical release.

https://shop.cooking...do-switch-2020?

Cooking Mama: Cookstar for the Nintendo Switch. It was pulled from retail due to a rights situation and now the publisher is selling it direct. There were a lot of strange rumors circulating about the game earlier this week. Among them was that the game was mining Bitcoin and that it overheated your Switch, but both were proven false.

 

Don't know about obscure it was sold by lamestop and Amazon. There are 400+ copies on sale on eBay right now. And you can still order it off that link you gave.

Its pretty much sold out everywhere and I'm sure the 400 plus copies on EBay are not priced MSRP ($39.99) and are attempting to be scalped.  I'd say it qualifies as obscure at least right now (unless it gets a later wider release).

I don't know what the big deal about Cooking Mama: Cookstar is. Is it actually a good game or people just want it because it is scarce? It doesn't interest me one bit.

 

Looking on ebay, even flipping it for $60 like what is happening is not much profit after shipping and fees.

Flippers aren't known for their mental fortitude.

 

As far as I can tell the demand is mostly due to scarcity. People that like Cooking Mama like it, but Cooking Mama is a pretty niche series.

Not sure if this was posted yet, butt there is a small batch physical production (1500 copies) of Finding Teddy 2 Definitive Edition (originally released as Chronicles of Teddy: Harmony of Exidus) for the Switch. 
Great pixel art adventure game. Pumped to see it ported to the switch. 

Expected ship date is sometime this month.

The fact that these won't ship until Q3 2020 leads me to wonder if they'll be offered at retailers.

I'm surprised considering it's older, and got a release from lrg as well. Well good thing I ordered one this morning. Course they had the much better release considering you got some extra stuff for only 10 dollars more. Although that 7 dollars shipping was a bit much.

Sayonara, Wattam, and Gorogoa (any others?) are now being sold at Best Buy without notice beforehand. I bet KR0 will be on BestBuy.com closer to release.

first i was thinking $30 for the game only plus shipping or $10 bucks more just a box, stickers, and 2 cards plus $7 shipping.
then i read they giving out the digital code for the 2 games from SRG. that changed my mind and jumped on SRG.
