Astro Bears Party was delisted from the Nintendo Switch no earlier than April 3rd, 2019. This is the last date that Archive.org captures show that the game was still available to buy. The game was originally co-published and developed by SONKA and QubicGames but on December 10th, 2018 the brand rights were transferred wholly to SONKA.
This change in ownership may have been the cause of the game’s delisting but it is also possible that SONKA was unable to meet Nintendo’s requirements for a planned update in 2018. SONKA then essentially replaced Astro Bears Party with the July 2019 release, Astro Bears, and offered it for free to owners of Astro Bears Party until August 16th, 2019.
