“Penny-Punching Princess” Physical Switch Edition Cancelled in the UK


Penny-Punching Princess launches in the United Kingdom tomorrow, but those who were hoping to snag the physical standard edition on Nintendo Switch will have to change up their plans. Due to "unforeseen circumstances," NIS America had to cancel that version for the region.


The physical standard edition will still be available for Switch in Europe and Australia, just not in the UK. This also doesn't appear to impact the limited edition, which is up for sale on NISA Europe's online store.  


Here's the full statement from NISA: 

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 hits PS Vita and Switch in Europe on March 30, followed by North America on April 3.
