Mega Man: Battle & Fighters Shadow Drops on Nintendo Switch

Now here's a fun little surprise for ya. Today, SNK announced that Rockman: Battle & Fighters - rechristened as Mega Man: Battle & Fighters for the west -- is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $7.99. That's right; this marks the game's first official release outside Japan!

Please note that the game itself has *not* been translated. But speaking from experience, absolutely no Japanese knowledge is required to enjoy Battle & Fighters.
