    Good spot, it doesn’t seem to be in the EU or JP launches.

    Decent line up. But, like everyone else, I wonder what games are this holiday and what ones are late winter/early spring.

    Any idea if there is a digital list of games? I assume that these are all retail boxes.

    With the exception of Bayonetta 2, it’s a shitty lineup. That is a big one, though, as long as it remains exclusive.

    Games in the US will run $59.99, according to Nintendo.

    I have added that bit in there.
