NIS America Cancels Physical UK Release of Penny-Punching Princess for the Nintendo Switch

In some rather surprising, but disappointing news, NIS America have today announced that the Physical Nintendo Switch release of Penny-Punching Princess within the UK has been cancelled and that the game will only be released digitally; However; the game will be available in physical form throughout Europe and America.

It’s not entirely clear what led to this decision, especially as the game is due for release tomorrow within Europe, but it’s possibly that production delays for the UK version has caused NIS America to scrap the ‘entire’ physical release for the UK. A statement from NIS America can be found 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.

Penny-Punching Princess will continue to be available both physically and digitally within Europe, Australia and America but the game will only be available digitally within the UK.
