Jordan over at SwitchWatchTV loves his Physical Releases, and he also likes the white theme on his Switch for some reason. Anyways, you can check out his video below, or you can read it here on SwitchWatch.co.uk at your own convenience.
Let’s get physical! It’s Jordan here, back again with this week’s update on all the physical releases coming to the Nintendo Switch. We’re in the first week of March, and we’re looking at the releases from the 2nd until the 6th. As always, We’re taking a look at all the physical retail releases, all the low print games up for order, some juicy imports, and our community spotlight where you show off your pick ups.
Remember, if you want to support this series, leave us a comment with what you playing in your backlog and what is the most recent addition to your collection. This is a community-driven series, so we always want to know what’s going on in your Switch world. I didn’t pick up anything this week, sadly. I wanted to pick up Rune Factory but there are no English versions here in China, so I’ll have to wait until I visit England in the summer.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX
Leading the pack this week, we have a big Nintendo title, and something I’m very excited about. It is Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX. This is a much augmented remake of the original two games into one package. A lovely art style plus enhancements, and a game that’s part of one of my favorite genres.
I can’t wait, actually. Many people are questioning the price, and that’s fair enough. They used to be cheaper on the DS and 3DS, but you shouldn’t always judge gameplay by its graphics and simplicity. These are usually very good games, and I can get equal enjoyment from these as much as any other triple-A game. Am I the only one who feels that way? Anyways, this releases on March 6th.
A heads up for Europeans, Code:Realize is making its way to your shores this week after being released physically a few weeks ago in North America.
Right, a couple I missed last week. Both Secret of Magic 1 and 2 and Mystery Investigation 1 were released physically last week by Just for Games, a French distributor-turned-publisher. As you can imagine, info is pretty slim especially in English-speaking realms, but those looking for a complete collection will want to note these games down.
Right, that’s it for western retail. Before we move on, don’t forget that if you’re new here, subscribe to our YouTube channel here and sign up for our newsletter. When our YouTube channel reaches 50,000 subscribers, we are giving away a Nintendo Switch Lite to one of you.
There are no Low Print game announcements this week, as far as I can tell, so let’s just jump into the imports.

Doraemon: Nobita’s New Dinosaur
Doraemon: Nobita’s New Dinosaur is releasing in Japan on the 5th. This looks set to be a cheap action adventure game aimed at kids as Doreamon and his pals journey back 66 million years in the past to find some dinosaurs. I don’t believe there’s any English on this one.
Neo Atlas is getting a reprint in Japan. This time it is bundled with a guidebook and under the Best Choice label. I do believe this has English on the cartridge, although there is a western release anyways, so not particularly important. Not that I’ve ever seen anyone with the western physical before. This is out on March 5th.
KISHI FUJII SOUTA NO SHOGI TRAINING
KISHI FUJII SOUTA NO SHOGI TRAINING is, unsurprisingly, a training game for the traditional Japanese game, Shogi. It’s also staring the professional shogi player Kishi Fujii. There is no English, though, as you can probably expect.
Also, a bit of uncertainty, but there are murmurings that Play Asia exclusive, Distraint Collection, featuring both games in the series, could be out this week. If you don’t remember, these are 2D puzzle horror games, very surreal and weird, and they look quite cool. There’s a standard edition and a collector’s edition.
That was Your Physical Releases!
Right, guys. Hope you enjoyed this edition of new Physical Releases. What has taken your fancy this week? Be sure to check out last week’s episode in case you missed it. Check out last weeks slew of reviews including the incredible looking Bloodroots and of course Rune Factory 4 Special.
