I was already excited for RiME and seen that it got a 9 from Edge magazine so my hopes are pretty high. Might pass on the SF2 collection on switch. Highly recommend Disgaea 5 for switch owners, the game is bat-chit insane and pretty overwhelming but a great ride.

Excellent! 26th is the North American Release time, Gun Media stated they want it worldwide release, so since we're cool and are ahead of everyone by a day, I'm guessing it will get to us by Saturday morning/night possibly, pre-orders will be sent via email, and at release time, game should be visible on Xbox/PSN store. cant wait
