Hotline Miami Collection drops onto Switch eShop today (and somehow on sale in Australia)
Update: Somehow the Hotline Miami Collection is actually on sale in Australia right now for $37.50. But it probably shouldn’t be, unless the Australian Classification Board has changed its mind the second game should still be Refused Classification and unable to be sold in Australia. Even more bizarre is that the game is allegedly rated MA15+.
When you look up the classification listing for the game too, the most recent rating is for what appears to be the original game only – and it’s been refused classification. That classification was from June 2019. Hotline Miami 2’s original 2015 classification is still here and still RC’d.
We’re not sure if this will stay on sale, or the Board doesn’t care anymore. Either way, get it while it’s… hot?
Original Story: There’s a double dose of Hotline Miami hitting the Switch today with Hotline Miami Collection dropping on the eShop very soon.
That unless of course you live in Australia, which if you’re reading this means you probably do. The second game Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number was Refused Classification over four years ago and hasn’t been resubmitted or altered to be released since – which means we aren’t getting it.
Shame you can’t just switch to another account and buy games from another region – oh wait.
We’ll let you know if anything changes with a local release, but don’t bet on it.
