Got mine from Japan a couple days ago.  Really liking it so far!  Using a wired controller and having to turn it off via a switch on the console feels oddly nostalgic.

Trine Ultimate (1-4) is on sale on the eShop for $20.  It worth it?  Any reason to (or not to) pick it up on the Switch over the PS4?

I can only speak for Trine 1 and 2, but I really enjoyed them both.  I hear 3 is bad, but 4 looks pretty good?

 

I can see the Switch version being really good if you can use the touchscreen for creating Wizard items.  It was done with a mouse in the original PC version, not sure how well that translated to a controller.

Oh good grief.  Mine from Japan is expected to arrive tomorrow.  I could have just waited a week and not paid an extra $10 and clogged up international shipping routes.   :roll:

Does size make a difference to you? Could be the major differentiator as the Core is a real mini while the TG is the only "mini" that could actually pass for a standard console.

Nah, I'm not too worried about the size.  In fact, I just went ahead and ordered the TG-16 mini.  I hadn't pulled the trigger on Amazon JP all this time while the Coregrafx was available, so I guess this is what I was waiting for.  I'm a sucker for that late 80's/early 90's clunky design anyway.  :P

It looks like the TG-16 Mini is back in stock on Amazon JP.

 

Now I'm torn on whether to get the Coregrafx (which I think looks a bit cooler) or the TG (which feels more important historically to the US).
