Didn't see this up. Amazon has it at $18.39 currently but if you still have GCU it should be a bit cheaper.

If my memory serves, it's been this price since Cyber Monday.

Ordered - looks like only third party sellers have it on Amazon. Shame the BBY shipping is 12/24, but whatever.

I don't think that's the case, at least not the entire time anyway. Pretty sure I checked earlier when the Amazon price got tweeted to see if it was matched at BB and it was at regular price at the time and only showed up at 19.99 when I was getting something else in the afternoon.

I ended up ordering a special edition copy from the Nicalis store in addition to a standard edition from gamestop and there ended up being a cover variant. The Gamestop copy had a map on the inside cover while the Nicalis store version was blank.

 

Fun game, especially once you unlock Willow Cotton and can start abusing her float ability. Unfortunately you have to beat pretty much the entire game to unlock Curly.

Another Nicalis title - Crystal Crisis (Switch) - is also $19.99 at Best Buy right now.

Nope, I was right, and I remember now because I made the Cyber Monday thread for BB, lol! ;)

This, along with some other titles from Cyber Monday have been the same price since.

Really wish this was on PS4 as well. I loved Sayonara Umihara Kawase.

Who do I gotta schmooze to get them to let me use their GCU for a purchase? Lol.

Squarehard is correct. Super easy to find price history of any switch game really.

Not my type of game though..

I’ve had no interest in this game, but now I’m intrigued to go find out what has you so cheesed.

If you mean the difficulty.. we're masochists.

It's a skill-based platformer that relies on mastery of the swinging mechanics. Luck or blind playing won't get you anywhere; you'll get across maybe one or two gaps, but you'll never finish a whole level that way, much less the later levels or bosses.
