You can put 2 games on a Switch cart without one of them having to be a download code? Mind blown. :D

I wonder why Super Bomberman R, Just Dance 2017 and Has Been Heroes were allowed to have non standard font on the spines?

I think this is because it was so early in the Switch's life. Something similar happened with Xbox One where some spines were black way back in 2013/early 2014. Same goes for Binding of Isaac. When Binding of Isaac got a reprint, the spine font was standardized. I assume they were just getting things started and some of these things fell by the wayside. This is just speculation, but from history these types of non-standard fonts seem to slip through early in the console's life cycle.

Ghoulboy looks pretty cool, but I'll wait for PA's essentially guaranteed Switch release. This game is already on the Switch eShop so it's only a matter of time.

Anyone in the US ever order from Signature Edition games in the UK?  I'm kind of new to this limited release thing and only have experience with LRG at this point.  They have a couple of Switch releases I'd like to get the CE's for: Slain and Moonlighter.

I’ve ordered a lot from them. They package really well and prolly a 5-10 day delievery window.
I have moonlighter CE and it’s fantastic.

They did revise their packaging after the complaints from Slain and a few of their other earlier releases. I remember getting like three emails about it.

Yeah, slain was one of the early games, they did seem to be taking feedback and making adjustments

It actually took them a lot longer than their "earlier" releases to fix all the complaints and their customer service is still terrible.  The new packaging is more like a box and not one of those cardboard folders, but there is still little padding inside.  They have definitely improved the packaging, but I would still say order with caution.

Is there a release date for Ghost Blade HD on the Switch from Play-Asia? I recall them announcing the Switch port a ways back but it still doesn't seem to have a pre-order page on their website.

I would have thought GameStop gave up on publishing games after dumping their De-Formers stock when the servers were shut down and converting Has-Been Heroes stock to preowned and still not being able to clear them out at $5.

I was wondering thet too despite having the Dreamcast and PS4 version. Lol.

I already have 4 versions of Ghost Blade (2 different ones on Dreamcast and 2 different ones on PS4). I'd definitely consider a switch version, though--portable tate mode shmups are really hard to pass up.

Bendy and Katamari were gamestop physical exclusives and both went OOS for a bit, they're probably just not taking gambles on titles

Tyrok's point is that the Trine Collection will be published by GameTrust, Gamestop's publishing arm. Bendy and Katamari were published by Rooster Teeth and Bandai-Namco, respectively.

It wouldn't surprise me if there was - Play-Asia has done it before with Reverie, and some others I believe.

Where is the standard 24.99 version for PS4? All I see is a pricey limited one

The original email from Play-Asia said there wouldn't be a standard edition of Ghoulboy, only Limited Editions.

This game is coming to the Nintendo eShop, so a Switch release is very likely.
