It is with sadness that NIS announced that Penny-Punching Princess will not be available in physical format in the UK. Their statement reads below;
“We at NIS America Inc. would like to thank all of you for your continued enthusiasm and consideration for this title. We sincerely appreciate the support that you have shown Penny-Punching Princess as well as the anticipation that you have demonstrated for the title. While we are excitedly counting down the hours until we can share this amazing title with the United Kingdom digitally, we have a solemn update to present regarding the physical release on Nintendo Switch™.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Standard Edition physical release of Penny-Punching Princess will not be available in the UK region.
It was brought to our attention that the orders for this title would not be able to be fulfilled by their proper release date. In response to this issue, we worked tirelessly to correct this matter. With all options considered, the only viable option left was to cancel the United Kingdom physical release of the Standard Edition of Penny-Punching Princess.
Once again, we would like to extend our personal thanks for your support of this title and our company and hope that you continue to look forward to its Nintendo Switch™ and PS Vita digital releases on Friday.
Please note that this occurrence was isolated to the United Kingdom, and will not impact the availability in Europe and Australia. The title will still be available digitally for the United Kingdom.”
What do you guys think of this news? Personally, as the game’s on Switch are region free it will mean having to import the standard edition which nowadays is not the biggest deal in the world but it does mean having to pay larger shipping fees which is a bit of a pain. Check out our video review below and written review of Penny-Punching Princess can be found here.
For UK buyers buying digitally, the game is priced at £39,99 which is the same in Dollars in the USA at $39,99 so we recommend if purchasing digitally to buy it from the USA Eshop as you will save yourself £12 in today’s exchange rate. If you insist on a physical copy then you can get a standard edition but be prepared to pay over the odds for it. Amazon has some below. You can also check out The Longest 5 Minutes also from NIS America with our review of that game here.
There is some good news as you can still buy the Limited Edition copy in the UK but hurry as there is a limited quantity and at least if you’re going to spend over £50 on the standard import you may as well spend the money in getting the game and some cool extras!
