I'm amazed we haven't seen a physical printing of Cuphead. That's a game that surely could meet the 20k threshold.

 

Just look at ebay prices for the empty cases w/ art cels that Best Buy had a couple years ago: https://www.ebay.com...d xbox&_sacat=0

I'm pretty sure at this point the developers of that game will be doing their own release(when the time comes), and probably just for the NS at this point, but who knows? They also have DLC coming down the road, so I'm sure their probably waiting for all that before offering a physical release.

 

I would assume most would buy on the NS over the ONE, as it performs just as well, and at least with the NS game, you technically get two versions(home and on the go). Since CH is pretty much a MS title, I'm sure they could print in qty's they want vs. some minimum requirement, and I'm sure the OG fan base would still want this game in a standard release or CE if possible, so why not?

There has been a confirmed physical release for Cuphead on the Switch, and as mentioned, I'm sure they're waiting for their DLC... and that's something I greatly appreciate. I hate when discs don't come with the full game. Really chops away at the preservation aspect of physical media.

Totally agree. I'd much rather wait a little longer and get the full game on cart.

On the other hand, Ori is already content complete and would make a mighty attractive Switch cart. I would do regrettable things to make that happen.

Hey, I just checked & the mighty rabbit Limited Run forums were down for me. Not the one here obviously but the one that used to be connected to their website. Are they working for anyone else?

They appear to be down.  it could be they have opted out of hosting forums all together but no word on their twitter.  I'm not on twitter so no way to message them, but if you are you could ask them what up with the forums.  Note, there's no link on the site anymore it seems.

The link direct from the site has been gone for a while, but there is still a link to the forum in the "About" section of the site.

Good to know.  Odd they removed it everywhere but this one page.  Also the forum is hosted by mighty rabbit studios, but they don't seem to have any links on their site to the forums unless it's equally hidden.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I just checked, and the forum link in the "About" page is broken as well...

Ordered Streets of Red for switch like anyone else that wanted a copy of it right.. and I like horror movies and games so not too bad of a purchase.
Really is odd to me seeing games without pre-order windows and such small numbers available last this long though.

I dont think it's odd at all.

 

It's a game no one was asking for. It's like 8.99 on psn without being on sale and it will be 40 on lrg. All it comes with is just a single trading card. And especially if you're like me and turned off by perma death you're not interested in it. 

 

If I ever do want it I can get it cheaper off ebay or even gamefly later on down the road.

Gamefly gets these limited run games? I'm not doing enough research these days lol
But yea all these games can be had cheap as dirt digitally on sale eventually.

It's making it difficult to get everything I would like to have in physical form.
I'm starting already to only purchase what I want.. what I really really want & not buy things like Vitamin Connection lol

Not just "eventually." It's quite common for a lot of these games to be on steep discounts digitally before they are even announced as LRG releases. One of the more common approaches is for a studio to treat LRG as a "final" version distributor, where they don't bother releasing a physical copy until after the game has already had several digital revisions. We see games come out for LRG that have already been available digitally for years, and have already had numerous sales and discounts.

 

The instances where a brand-new digital game comes out for LRG at the same time are actually the exception, and only recently became a thing. Most developers don't take this approach.

Interesting move Xseed is doing with Fate Link. We might not see the Link LE hit the crazy low prices the Fate Extella LE got at some retailors.

Do we Know if Best Buy will continue carrying games from Limited Run?

Not sure if anything official has been said, but the last game to mention BB would be having copies of was Divinity Original Sin 2.

 

If they do they will most likely be ordering a lot less copies than the earlier games.  River City Girls is just about sold out and Duck Game is in store only (and those were the two most recent releases carried by BB).  Timespinners is also in store only at this point (but every one of my local stores has copies so it should be around for a while).

 

Wandersong is up for preorder at BB.

Last week those listings definitely didn't mention it.  Good to see them carrying more titles.

PSA: For those who supported "Project Sense: A Cyber Punk Ghost Story" on Kickstarter, you have until the 31st to finish your Backerkit survey to finalize the items you ordered. I've been putting it off all month, and was finally clearing my inbox today and ran across the reminder, so finished mine this morning.

I wasn't able to figure out how to switch my pre-orders over to Switch copies. I feel like these Kickstarter backer pages are always super convoluted for changing things around after the fact--or, in this case, for options that weren't originally a part of it.

Yeah, the NS game was supposed to be added pending approval, so I would guess it didn't happen, or is still being worked on behind the scenes. I haven't checked the comments on the pledge page, so there may be some info there about it.

 

I was gonna grab my copy for the NS as well, since I've pretty much sold off most of my Vita collection at this point, but I assumed it didn't happen, and went with the Vita version anyways. The Vita may end up the most collectible of the bunch, as I'm sure qty's will be super low, so that may be the better choice overall(if anyone cares about that).

Looks to be around 1k copies assuming minimum order qty and everyone who is getting physical chose vita over PC/PS4.

They might also pull the usual and have extra copies to sell on Play-Asia since it's being published with EAS.
