Yesterday amidst the mass of E3 shout-outs, reveals, and general excitement, it was revealed that one of the Switch's best RPGs (and one of my personal favourites), Golf Story, will be getting a physical edition.

If you've not yet had the pleasure of playing it, in Golf Story you play as a mediocre golfer with a dream of making it big. You've got to show off what you've got not only on the green but off it too, and there's tons to explore and do.

This always hold a bit of a special place in my heart because I was so not into it at first. When reviewing it back in October I struggled initially to connect with the protagonist since I'm not a golfing fan, and I spent about nine hours figuring out whether I liked it or not. Obviously after that amount of time and the urge to dive straight back into playing, I sincerely loved it.

It's charming, rich, detailed, and showcases one of the best uses of HD Rumble yet on the Switch. If you've been on the fence about picking it up I can't help but recommend it wholeheartedly.

Published by Limited Run Games, the physical version of Golf Story will arrive in September later this year exclusively from the company's website.
