Same thing happened to me, I slacked off on preordering it so I placed a late order for one on each platform. It may not have a big production run and may be harder to find later.

Also don't forget about Raiden V, not widely available for preorder and still includes the Prime discount. Amazon said they wouldn't be offering Prime discount for collector's editions in the future, but this is a cheaper CE so probably not included in that:

Yeah, the discount will likely stay though if they take it away I believe Bull Moose has this listed for $35.97 and no tax (for most), which is almost as good as the Prime discount.

Would've been cool if the Wii U version had made it here. I get that the platform is dead but that would have been a nice send off.

The devs stated that they're still planning on bringing it physical to the west, they're just looking for different distributors since more traditional ones have shunned it, unless something has changed in the last several days.

 

Why don't you guys hop on it? lol

Wonder why the Switch multiverse edtion isn't on best buy yet, Amazon has it but I'd much rather give BB my money

Thanks for the heads up on Axiom Verge.  Still waiting on velocity 2X: Critical Mass Edition to come out of "Coming Soon" status.

GameStop stealth released City Skylines physical for PS4 today 8/15. I first noticed it got added this week when looking for The Sexy Brutale which got bumped from 8/15 to 8/29.

 

It was previously appearing as XBO only back with their last batch of exclusives.  

 

Leave it to GameStop to go after exclusives/monopolies instead of competing.

I wasn't sure if this was releasing this week or not since the website wasn't clear when I looked at it on Monday.  I had it preordered but lately the local store has not been notifying me when stuff comes in.  Guess I will make a trip out there today or tomorrow to pick it up.

To be fair, it rated low on PS4 and XB1 as well.  MSRP for those versions was $49.99 versus $29.99 for the Switch.

Troll and I is a horrible buggy mess on the Switch:/ someone I follow on Twitter got it and within the first 20 minutes his game locked and every time he reloaded the save it was a complete mess. Missing textures, falling into the earth, etc. he had to completely delete his data and reinstall to fix it.

That's annoying.  I have an instore preorder and was told the 25th :( i know GS only "holds" preorders for 48 hrs.  I've never tried to pick one up out of that time period.  I'm sure it will be fine, since I'm probably the only one that ordered it lol.

 

Thanks for the heads up tho! I'm actually really looking forward to this game :)

Have to be careful with Gamestop.

 

Order online and they bend the hell out of or even crack the case running it though their glue paper rollers.

 

Don't preorder for store pickup either they might only get one copy and you know what that means.

 

Such a shitty place to buy games.  They've been trying harder than ever to lock up exclusives this year.

This is a cool idea. $4 shipping?

 

Hmm... It's weird that at $25 I wasn't going to hesitate. $29? I'm not sure.

In for one. Was there any kind of announcement for this? Kinda seems like it appeared out of nowhere.

Got my order in for Guacamelee. I really like that game. I already own it on three different digital platforms, and I still want to buy the physical copy from VBlank.

It's about damn time they offered a physical version for one of their games. Any mention anywhere for a Vita copy? It's seems like a no brainer considering how well RCR did over at Vblank.

At this time no.

 

They are thinking about it though including Severed, but there is no plans at the moment.

Yeah, I'm already signed up, as I just saw the email announcing the PS4 game in my inbox. If their thinking about it, I'm sure it's only a matter of when Vs. if. 

 

I may grab this, as I'm sure it will go fast, and Vblank normally doesn't have limits I believe, so it's a free for all on qty's. I'm for sure all in, when the Vita version may happen.

Guacamelee is a fantastic game. I really enjoyed playing it.

 

I have the Platinum on Vita.

 

I personally think this it too late of a release for me. For others this is a great release.
I have it for free on Xbox One with GWG and PS4 with Plus. I also have it on Wii U from a Nindies humble bundle.

 

Now if they decided to release the Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition on Vita I would be all over it.

Let's make that happen! A Vita physcial release of Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition would be amazing.

Yeah, "planned" isn't the same as "never", so I wouldn't put much stock in that. But I would for sure recommend anyone on the fence for this, get it now, as I've seen the butt hurt here many times over the price and the shipping in the past. Only to turn in to regret when these are going for $60+ in the future.
