Took a chance on Horizon Chase Turbo and am loving it. Though it’s explicitly an homage to the Top Gear series (even going so far as to feature music by that series’ composer) Out Run fans will feel right at home here. If you’re the kind of person who has already plowed through every unlockable thing in Sega AGES Out Run, this should be your next purchase.


Horizon Chase Turbo is fantastic! Tons of tracks/cars/upgrades/unlockables, too. Well worth the retail price, much less the current sales price.

When you purchase the game in the Mexico eShop and then switch your account back to US it shows as purchased in the US eShop, so just download it from the US eShop if you're worried the game will be different.

Ah, great thanks. Any idea if this is the same for games purchased from other not North American regions?

I think the difficulty is getting the credit card to work in other stores but should work the same if you have a card that works.

Do DS games ever go on sale on Wii U or not really?

There aren't really sales on Wii U anymore, so you'd have to keep an eye on My Nintendo for any of those VC games to get coupons you can grab.

Can anyone tell me how many Nintendo Humble Bundles that there have been to date?  I'm going back through my Humble Bundles, and the only one that I can tell that I bought was the Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle.  And I didn't know what Humble Bundle was when the Humble Nindie Bundle came out, so I definitely didn't buy that one.  So have there only been two of them at this point?  Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer this question.

Two or three of them? They were mostly indie games in them.

Thanks, Frisky.  Google can't even tell me for sure, but I believe that the two that I named were the only two that have occurred to date.

I agree, I think there have only been two that I remember. They were big deals at the time so I don’t think I missed any. I’ve been hoping that they would do another, especially since Humble sells codes for Switch games on their store.

The reason that I asked is that I thought that I would buy Super Street Fighter IV for 3DS while it was on sale, but then, I went back and looked at the Friends of Nintendo Bundle and realized that it was one of the 3DS games in that bundle.  So, I saved myself $4.99.

 

That bundle also included a bunch of 3DS and Wii U games that had codes that I finally redeemed today as well.  I still need to get an external HD for my Wii U so that I can play some of them - Affordable Space Adventures, Darksiders II, Freedom Planet, and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse among them.  Again, saved money by not rebuying.

I almost bit on Horizon Chase Turbo, but I'm confidant I will like the game so I think I'll get the physical release coming soon.

If anyone is on the fence, Thumper is a really fun/addictive rhythm/beats game with great visuals. $5 is also a great price for it.

You can do it with one account too. Go to the Nintendo website. Log in and go to settings. In User Info > Profile click Edit and you can change your region. It will warn you of some things but the only thing to really worry about is that you will lose any funds on the account. If you have a zero balance then you're good.

 

The Mexican eShop takes US credit card as well. Paypal probably works too. After you buy it you can do the same thing to change it back to US. It will show as purchased in both shops.

Question on this - For the only purchases I've made on the MX eshop (Hollow Knight, GG) I just made a separate account.  If I do just start region swapping, is "credit" just a straight cash balance, or does it include my gold coins?  If I start getting games that are more than $5, I'd like to tie them all into one account.

Pretty sure you can't hold a balance if you are region swapping. I haven't done it myself, though.

I'm hoping Best Buy lists it soon (though they still got some time since its supposed to come out late July).  Definitely looking forward to preordering the physical copy though.

You can't hold a balance while region swapping and gold coins earned are tied to the region. You won't forfeit gold coins earned, but you can't pool them together across regions.

Awesome, that's what I was wondering.  So I can't keep an actual "cash" balance (which is fine - I only really add the total I'm spending).  BUT I'll still keep any gold coins earned and they don't prevent switching - I just can't use them in another region.

So, I had to ask Nintendo for a refund on the Castlevania Anniversary Collection. I know it is nitpick-y, but the display options are all out of wack, and the normal 4:3 display doesn't even go to the top and bottom of the screen. It is even worse on docked mode

 

Apparently, they also used a bugged ROM for Castlevania 1 that will lead to crashes near the end of the game. I'm pretty disappointed in this collection from M2. I might pick it up later on sale, if they fix the major issues. Bummer.

Can anyone confirm for me that the Starlink: Battle for Atlas™ Collection 1 Pack works with the physical game?  On the main page it appears to be the case but as you go through checkout it specifically says it requires the digital copy to work.  

 

Pretty sure that's just a typo but not looking to waste $25 on all the ships. lol

Dang, wish MHGU was a litte cheaper. I've been slowly converting my Switch library to digital, but a $12 TiV for my physical copy isn't enough for the difference.

Have we ever determined if you loose your gold coins if you change regions?
I know if you have any money credit, you lose it. But what about the gold coins?

The odds of it going lower digitally in the near future are much lower than the odds that the physical copy will get boosted in the next GS stealth bump. It was on the stealth bump list in April. I would personally take that chance. I'm still kicking myself for not buying a digital copy of BOTW when it was on sale for $39.99. This is Capcom though, so another sale is probably inevitable
