    Hey

    Title says nearly everything. I can't find the game on the european (german) eShop. I am wondering if it will get released here.

    it will get released there but there's no telling yet on when they probably are having troubles with the rating or something if you need it now you'll have to import but if you can wait it is coming.

    oops i misread i thought you meant physical

    I'm pretty sure we don't get it till next Friday in EUR.

    I hope I'm wrong. I tried changing my console region too but it didn't change my eshop.

    Little inferno and Human resource machine I believe are both available for eshop in USA but have a 23/03/2017 in EUR so I'm assuming it will be the same for Isaac.

    I could be wrong on all fronts though.

    @Risingdawn You need a (i.e.) japanese account on your Switch to use the japanese eShop. The console region is completely useless afaik.

    But thx for your replies guys. I don't want to create another Nintendo account just for one game so I'll wait until it gets downloadable here.

    Ah right, very weird. If I'm wrong about Little Inferno already being released in USA I'm probably wrong about Isaac too hopefully.

    You can create another account using another region, to access other eshops. I have a USA and Japan account and access both.

    hmm so I did this, strange thing the EU purchases I'd made with my original account showed as Purchased still on my US account!

    So purchases are tied to console and not account I take it?

    No, it is a protection so you won't buy one game twice.

    Oh okay, I suppose it doesn't really matter either way if you have access to both accounts as any user on the console can play the game it was downloaded onto.

    I might just make my purchases on the US account from now on as the exchange rate makes them cheaper than EU.

    It looks like Isaac Afterbirth+ isn't coming to europe yet. It is still not in the eShop.
