Did Grandia ever get fixed? My understanding was there was some assets that were poorly remastered.

I believe both games got patched, but I'd hope LRG would ensure the patches will be on the cart...That might be worth confirming via Twitter.

My poor wallet :(

While I'm super excited for the original Shantae to be re-released, I was really hoping it would have been available on PS4 to go with all the other games. I'm sure I'll end up buying the Switch version under the impression that it will be the only way to get the original game on physical that isn't gameboy color. And then they'll end up doing a PS4 port and do a physical release of that too and I'm going to end up double dipping to get the console version I originally wanted.

 

yeah it's a bittersweet announcement. I love my switch, but I own all other Shantae games for PS4...

Holy shit.. that's a massive list. I'm stoked Shantae is getting a modern release- to date, still the best game in the series. I really want to see what their GBC reprint looks like too; really hope they keep the original art style and not re-do it with the generic anime style of the newer games. Ricky's Revenge was... ok. Honestly, that's prob the worst game of the series but might pick that up too.  

 

Also would be interested in Grandia but not sure they ever fixed the released since the "remaster" honestly looked worse than the original. Hopefully we have a clear answer before the game goes on sale... this was something that pushed me away from Panzer Dragoon on NS as, at the time I was looking to order it, I couldn't find a clear answer if it would be the patched version or not.

Really happy to see Bug Fables getting a physical release. I will definitely grab that one!

Mighty Switch Force! Collection is out today at Best Buy (sku 6419955). Only 2-3 per store. Make sure your store checks the actual date for that sku because it likely won't be put out thanks to them sending it in a box marked 7/14.

I wonder if this was sold early in error. Haven't seen this yet in any of my stores near me

I can see that a lot of stores have copies. It wouldn't be the first time they listed a lower print game on the website later to give grab-and-go customers a chance to get one first. I gave the sku so anyone could call up and see which stores in their area have it.

I know someone answered regarding a specific game a few days ago, but for those games that are slated per the description to also be carried by Best Buy, are they only available via them once they ship from LRG?

Have my eyes on a few games that had preorder windows in March-April that arent apparently being shipped until Q3 or later of 2020. Does that means that's the earliest that BB will carry them?

I apologize if this has been answered already, but has there been any news on the Panzer Dragoon Remake? (specifically, if Best Buy will carry it).

It's been hard to keep track of LRG with so many releases and information coming out recently. Seems like Panzer Dragoon is getting lost in the shuffle.

NITW is still happening. It's just delayed as the developers are dealing with the aftermath of some real life issues. You can look it up on Google if you're not aware of what those are.

There may be some extras available at the New Years blowout sale. Also, if conventions such as PAX and Pop Up Shop can be held again those are options too.

 

Games usually start appearing at BB about 30 days after LRG has begun shipping their orders.

Unless something changed between when this tweet was posted and now, Best Buy won't be getting any copies:

That's not how I read that tweet.  If Best Buy were to carry copies, it would still be an LRG release.

Interesting, I didn't consider that. I hope you're right.

Thanks for the info! I'll definitely keep my eye out around then.

So I went back and talked to someone. He found he had 2 copies and they looked to be street dated. I quoted the post that they should be free and clear to sell. He checked with management and sold me a copy. Very happy to have found this. Thanks for updating the thread!

I hope NitW is still happening. I feel like the devs are kind of trying to bury it due to all the drama last year.

I personally thought the problem with NitW was who to turn to for licensing since the creator committed suicide. Having to wrangle with legal issues into where the rights revert to. But it's been a while now...

No, it's not a licensing issue.  In fact, LRG already has a license to release the game.  The rights to the game are controlled by the team that developed the game, not just one of the developers.  Douglas mentioned a while back that it might see a release this Fall, but it really depends on what the surviving team members feel is appropriate.

American Express has offers you can add to your card that earn you additional cash back as statement credit.

 

One of the recent ones I added was meant to encourage purchases at small businesses:

 

 

Spend $10+, get $5 back, up to 10 times when you Shop Small by 9/20/20

 

 

I just placed an order with LRG using my Amex, as I usually do, and I got $5 back from the small business offer.

Unless the preorders will be cut off at a certain number of copies, describing this as a "limited" release seems like a misnomer. Sure, there won't be any more produced after the preorders close, but the period will likely be 1-2 months.

Discover also has 5% cashback from PayPal. I'll definitely use AMEX if my order is less than $100. I remember activating this offer but I forgot to look into it to see what stores were eligible.
