Jordan over at SwitchWatchTV had brought us the goods once again! It’s time to get PHYSICAL, and this is the first Let’s Get Physical episode of February 2020. He was able to find a lot of games for us and has even provided links to help you buys some. How about we hold hands, dive in together, and let’s check out these physical releases coming out this week. As always, check out the video below or continue down for the transcript with links.
Let’s get physical! It’s Jordan here. Back again with this weeks update on all the physical releases coming to the Nintendo Switch. We’re finally into February, and we’re looking at the physical releases from the 3rd until the 7th. First week of February! As always, we’re taking a look at all the retail physical releases, all the low print games up for order, and some juicy imports.
Remember, if you want to support this little series, leave us a comment with what you playing in your backlog and what is the most recent addition to your collection. Personally, well despite the impending doom of the deadly coronavirus, it ain’t stopping the Chinese postal system because Romancing Saga 3 turn up at the doorstep! At which point, I immediately dowsed it with bleach before quarantining it for a few days.
But here it’s here! I’m very happy about this classic JRPG being in my collection. It’s an import from Asia, but it does have English on the cart. If you fancy this yourself a copy, then there’s a link in the description below. I’m still looking for those two Kemco compilations, but I can’t seem to get them yet.

This Week’s Physical Releases!
On the 4th of February we’re supposed to be seeing the release of Monster Jam: Steel Titans. This is due to be the second game in the Monster Jam series after the Switch received Crush It a while ago. Now, I think we did get a review code in for this one, but when we played it, we just found it a bit too on the boring side to be worth doing a video for. In fact, I asked Juan prior to making this very video just to make sure I was remembering correctly. So I asked him how the game is, and he replied, “It was rubbish”. Yikes.
Monster Energy Supercross
In a very similar kind of genre, we have the exhaustively titled Monster Energy Supercross The Official Videogame 3. Although if you actually read the box, the title is even longer. But anyways, Juan reviewed this one late last week and found it to be a decent game. If you are a fan of the sport, you may enjoy. Although it might be a bit on the expensive side. If you want to find out all of his though, then I advise you head over to watch/read his review after reading this.
Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth
Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth is getting a physical release this week in North America thanks to Aksys Games. This is a visual novel and a fairy old one too. Originally a 2014 PlayStation Vita game, it released on the Switch in Japan in 2018. I don’t claim to be familiar with the game, but it’s an Otome visual novel, which I’m told is where you are a girl who’s trying to date different dudes. That’s perhaps being slightly disrespectful, considering the Vita version holds a score of 86 on Metacritic. Say what you want about the site, that has to be a decent sign of its quality. Visual novel fans, you should take notice!
Right, that’s it for western retail. Before we move on, don’t forget that if you’re new here to hit that subscribe button on our YouTube channel for all the latest Switch content.
LOW PRINT GAMES
Now, this is where we usually head into the Low Print Games section. However, it seems nothing is actually going up for sale this week. But just a quick mention to Strictly Limited, who can’t help but keep putting up stuff for pre-order despite taking their sweet time to fulfill past orders. Anyways… on February 23rd, Sister’s Royal will be put up for order, but I’ll talk more about that in the relevant episode.
Likewise, Limited Run Games will be putting Forgotten Anne up for order next week. Again, I’ll talk more about that in next week’s episode.
So let’s delve into the imports section, which is equally scant.
Just a heads up that all the games mentioned here today, if any tickle your fancy, we have links below as to where you can find them for yourself to purchase. They are affiliate links, so any purchase you make using those links will also help out the SwitchWatch team massively. We very much appreciate all of your support in this regard.
And Play Asia themselves have taken notice! Especially these last couple of weeks. Some of you have been supporting us immensely. Honestly, I’ve been shocked, and Play Asia have seen this and got in touch. Yes, we’ve finally got ourselves a personalized discount code for you wonderful SwitchWatchers!
Yes. Now when you’re checking out on Play Asia, enter the discount code “SwitchWatch”. All one word “switchwatch” to get 5% off your purchases. This doesn’t include anything that’s digital like eShop credit, but on any physical item 5% off each sounds like a nice little reward. Hopefully this can lead to some more awesome stuff like giveaways in the future. If we continue to be successful, we really want to give back to the community this year.
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Infinite Combate
Right, there’s not a whole lot of import goodness this week. We have one release for the Asian regions. At least I hope so this time, since the long delayed Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon should be getting it’s first English physical release. Yes, it released a while back in Japan but without English. This Asian version, however, does have English, and if you’d have asked me a few months ago, I would have said I was 100% picking this up.
But Pqube, bless ‘em, have announced that they will be producing a physical release for this in the west in May. There’s no word on if the west is getting a collector’s edition though. If you fancy that with a soundtrack CD and an adventurer’s guide book, check out the PlayAsia links. Also, you can buy a classy 3D mousepad and wall scroll separately as an add-on too. Links for all are below. Let us know if you’re importing or waiting for Pqube’s western release.
And that’s really it in terms of imports this week. Bit of a quiet one.
