Is there a way to tell (before I open the game) if I received the revised version of Hollow Knight on Switch? Is there an updated UPC?

I personally really liked the metal storm one someone released (LRG?). Its fairly pricey for an original, and had just enough extra gimmicks and stuff to make it feel more like an official collectible than a cheap bootleg.

That said I didn't buy it. But I'm not totally against these old school redo cartridges. They just need to put in the extra effort to make it feel worth it.

Those are priced absolutely absurdly for what you get.

They changed one of the screenshots on the back cover.

Edit: the link is for their replacement program. If you preordered or bought HK at launch and can provide a receipt they'll exchange your old copy for a new one.

Thanks! Looks like I received the revised version (ordered from BB on sale).

I'd probably pick both of those up if they were more reasonably priced, say $50 to $60.  But no way at $100.

 

I'm sure there are many collectors that will buy them at price, and more power to them.  Just not me.

I'd like to know what is included in the SRG version of My Friend Pedro.  Hopefully some good stuff at a reasonable price.  Otherwise I'm just ordering it from BB with GCU.

SRG release of My Friend Pedro will contain the Code Yellow DLC on the cartridge. Retail won't have that.

Thanks, I was looking for this info too. I found out too late that this was the case with Enter the Gungeon as well, so I'm gonna try to get in on the second chance sale next month.

I believe so but details are scarce (like with Ninja Saviors when SLG did that preorder).

Wow I'm definitely in for the my friendd Pedro 35 set. I was really on the fence because I'm not sure how much I will like the game, but that's an awesome amount of stuff for a great price. Other places would have that like 50 to 80.

I think I will stick with my retail preorder at BB with GCU for $23.
I really don't need all the extras and I've been wanting to play the game for a while now but waited for the physical release.

I like the idea of the digital soundtrack being exclusive to the retail version.

Special Reserve does such a great job with their releases. You can't go wrong with any of these.

The main problem I have with the retail version is it doesn't include the Code Yellow update on cart, like the SRG versions.  Plus the $34.99 looks like a great value, so I'll be going for that one.

Just pointing out that My Friend Pedro appears to be confirmed for a NA retail release, albeit without the Code Yellow update or other goodies. That's what you were asking, right?

While I was in Best Buy yesterday I noticed they had copies of Katamari Damacy Reroll (Switch) for $19.99.  I also saw copies of Sonic Mania (Switch, minus the DLC) for $19.99 as well.  They had value stickers on them so check the value game bins if you are interested.

 

On a side note I'm not sure why anyone (except pure completionists) would want to get the standard edition of Sonic Mania when the Plus version is still readily available and can be had for a similar price.

Plus is actually $10 more at Best Buy, although I still think it's a fair point.

On the tracking for yours when did it release customs?  Mine finished going through on Monday... I'm expecting it should show up soon as well.

I got mine on Saturday. It's pretty cool to have these after all of this time.
