Grabbed WRC 7. It's a definite upgrade from 6 but still kinda regretting paying full day-1 price, coz they really are pretty similar.

Stardew Valley for Switch *may* be out this week as well. Not sure if it's going to pop up on the NZ / US eshop but that's what I'm hoping for.

I'm definitely interested in trying out Battle Chasers, hope it's good. Nothing else for me this week though which I don't mind, my wallet's still recovering from last month.

Will wait for a sale on Battle Chasers. It looks interesting but not interesting enough to buy at full price.
