Indie/Limited/Obscure Physical Release Deals and Discussion Thread

Could you break it down for me? I can read that two ways: the first being "There will only be one release, it's the LE release. One run.", the other way being "There will only be one run of the LE release" which doesn't address if there will be a standard release. I have the feeling that he intends to say there will ONLY be the LE release, though


Since he references Liar Princess and the Blind Prince and Lapis x Labyrinth it indicates the “retail” he speaks of is “non-NISA exclusive” since both of those were also available at Amazon at one point. At least that’s my understanding.

They were also available at Best Buy.

Ah okay, I was unfamiliar with those releases so I didn't know how to interpret it

Is this game actually a limited print?  Most of their other games have a # produced but GF doesn't.  I can wait until they have some other items I want to save on shipping, but I don't want it to sell out before then.

Those games also only ever were released as the LE, there were no standard copies of those games.  So I believe what he is saying is that La Mulana 1 and 2, and the Psikyo Collections will only be released as LEs, but will be available at standard retail outlets like Best Buy and Amazon, in somewhat limited quantities.  Liar Princess and Lapis X Labyrinth both sold out soon after their release date so I would preorder them at your retail outlet of choice right away.  For me, that will be Best Buy since I still have GCU.

A US retail release is supposed to happen but PQube has been very hit or miss with retailers so I wouldn't be surprised if its only sold at VG Plus and maybe Amazon and Gamestop.

Good to know. In the link I shared you can see the NA listings but they are just not live to preorder so I’m inclined to say it will be offered through play Asia

Amazon usually has PQube releases, listings just go up super late it seems. I'd give it another few weeks personally.

Forager and Risk of Rain 2 are finally up for preorder at Best Buy (if you still have GCU and have been waiting).  Forager is supposed to come with some goodies in the Launch Edition.

I was just going to ask when the Aggelos USA release will go up. I guess I need to wait a bit longer. That switch tax is real @ play-asia, ouch

The Messenger packaging and art book from SRG is really nice. I really liked that it does not cost more for the extra stuff and shipping was free if you preordered ahead of time. I felt like I got a value out of letting them take my money upfront.

PlayAsia seems to have a European Deluxe Edition of Wargroove. Hopefully we get some kind of edition over here

If it's the same, why not just buy from PlayAsia? PS4 and Switch games are both region free and patches also aren't affected, either.

Apparently, in addition to the usual little extras that SRG throws in, the Switch version also comes with a "custom" FlipGrip. I haven't seen any official confirmation of that yet, but if it's true I'll probably end up double dipping on this one. I might anyway just for that cover.

I hope so. As far as I know they've just announced that it will come with an outer box, nothing about if it will match their other games. I really liked how The Messenger turned out though.

At this point, the Switch really is the Dreamcast 2.0. Such an amazing console.

Nice, steelbook and soundtrack.  Always a good thing!

 

Use code NPE to get $3 off.  Other codes give 5% off, which is $2.50 so not much of a difference.

The art for the PS4 version was much better, imho, especially the soundtrack.
