Original post: "Requires Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to play. Download code only, no physical game included."
Very disappointing if accurate.
Update 11/9/18: I phoned Nintendo directly (har har) to ask them what the go was.
The rep I spoke to confessed he didn't know and found it confusing and unclear himself, and said he had to speak to his superiors. (Not a great sign when even Nintendo reps are confused about it)
After 5 minutes on hold, he returned to inform me it was "most likely" just a code in a box.
Update #2, 15/9/18: Looks like it's a cartridge after all:
Nintendo sent over the retail version of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Torna - The Golden Country. Here are some pictures! pic.twitter.com/VIBL3ZyUrS— Daan Koopman (@NintenDaan) September 14, 2018
