Nintendo Switch gets a Japan-only Hanafuda game, and it’s the perfect import

Hanafuda cards – particularly the Koi Koi game that is played using those cards – might just be my favourite Japanese traditional game – I like Shogi and Kendama too, don’t get me wrong, but there’s a beauty about Hanafuda cards that has always drawn me in.

There’s a new dedicated Hanafuda game available for download off the eShop in Japan for Nintendo Switch. Some great AI opponents and gorgeous production values make this very much worth your time.

In this video I talk about Hanafuda, Koi Koi, and why this is one of the best import games you can grab.
