Is this the same Blu-Ray/DVD/CD style case that was available in Europe?

Well crap... I kickstarted this game years ago and my $60 copy isn't going to come with a steelbook that I'm aware of.  The steelbook looks pretty awesome too.

 

If the game's good enough, then maybe I'll see if I can just buy the steelbook later.

Just to be clear, its not an official steelbook, its something called a Novobox steel case.  In general the knockoffs are not as good as the original.

 

Still its a pretty good freebie that leaves me a bit salty for supporting the physical game in Kickstarter for almost double the money.

Damn. I kickstarted this game for ps4. I want the case as it looks cool but I can't justify buying it twice. Especially since I got the lrg bloodstained on ps4 and my exclusive backer slipcover from kickstarter for ps4 also.

But will the game be any good? MN9 had the same style high profile KS and flopped.

I hope this isn't Switch exclusive.

 I can see this game getting 6-7s. Not terrible, but nothing remarkable about it either.

It is so far and they listed the bonus last week.  Having said that, the case itself has a disc spindle inside and nowhere to stick a Switch cart, so it makes no sense that they even are giving this as a bonus for the Switch version.

Apparently it has been confirmed by a rep of 505 games on reddit that the picture is incorrect along with the description. It will hold the switch cart.

I plan to pre-order it but I'm using credit I have at crappy Walmart so I'm missing out on the steelbook. In any case I am worried about the quality of the game. I watched the most recent footage and while the visuals are looking better it seems like some of the effects have been dumbed down. That two-headed dragon battle also looked less than stellar.

 

The choice to go 2.5D was a poor decision. Curse of the Moon should have been bundled with it for more incentive.

Picked a copy up. Thanks OP. I agree that 2.5 D was a bad choice. Should have made it like SOTN. Still looks Like it will be a good game.

Yep! Was able to make it happen. :) I'm just working on the final details with Fangamer and then we'll make an announcement. Hang in there.

I backed this for the PS4 version because at the time, I did not have a switch. I might pick up an additional copy at Best Buy for the switch since $32 with GCU isn't too bad of a price (plus I probably have some reward certificates I can use to bring the price down). Plus I'm a sucker for steelbooks.

 

Why was the decision to go with 2.5D compared to 2D a bad decision? I'm not sure I understand the difference between the two enough to know why one is better than the other. Does the 2.5D just mean that the background has more depth, but it's still a traditional side-scroller?

Mean the metal case? Or did you mean the slipcover thats supposed to come with it?

 

And thats cool, but I kickstarted the ps4 version, not the switch.

Looks like backers have to buy the case and it’s limited to 1k

They just announced that it'll be limited to 800, and the "exclusive" Kickstarter DLC will no longer be exclusive and will be made available for $10 to everyone. So.. the only exclusive thing is the slipcase. Seems like a better deal to buy it from Best Buy

And the case costs $15.

Not what I was expecting to hear based on the Kickstarter quote.

Man, talk about screwing backers over. Much better off buying it in the store then backing it.

Thats what Im going to do. I have the KS ps4 version already I backed. So Ill get the switch from BB and just return the game and take the hit. Beats me hoping I find out about buying the case from KS too late and missing out since its only 800.

 

Wish backers could atleast have open orders for them at 10 bucks shipped since we backed it. But such as life.

There was no point in backing this, I hope I at least get the game on release day , and secondly I don’t have to wait for the soundtrack to ship separately.

Still don't understand why people back games up. Just seems like a waste of money to me. $350?!?! That's ridiculous. No judgment... Just sayin
