Default Limited Run Games approved to release Switch titles.

I figured we could have a master thread for the LRG’s titles. First one to come in 2018. Let the frustration and bloodletting begin.

My writeup for their first announced games.

Their first announced release is Saturday Morning RPG. This is one game that was created by the people who run Limited Run Games. This one is coming Spring 2018.

https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/...93794529611776



Their second round of announcements a few days ago was Flinthook and Mercenary Kings. Release date TBD.

Switch Limited Run #1: Thimbleweed Park
Pre-Order Date: 03/30/18
Price: $34.99


Thimbleweed Park on physical cartridge for the Nintendo Switch. Region free. This will be an open pre-order for a limited time! Includes a full-color manual and an interior print!

Quote:
October 15, 1987. A dead body is rotting under the bridge, but the 81 (sorry, make that 80) inhabitants of the once proud town of Thimbleweed Park have bigger concerns. The town's founder recently died under mysterious circumstances. The hotel appears to be haunted. A giant slice of pizza roams the streets. And something sinister is going on behind the locked gate of the burned-out pillow factory at the edge of town -- something that could consume us all.

Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this weird, rundown place. They don't know it yet, but they're deeply connected. And they're being watched.

Who is Agent Ray really working for?
What does Junior Agent Reyes know about the pillow factory fire?
Will the ghost, Franklin, get to speak to his daughter again?
Will Ransome the *Beeping* Clown ever become a decent human being?
Will aspiring game developer Delores choose her family over her dreams?
And most importantly: how come no one cares about that dead body?

By the end of a long, strange night, these questions will be answered -- and you'll understand why in a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems.

Thimbleweed Park is live. I went with just the normal version. I had the Big Box version in my cart and was about to complete check out but stopped to think that I really don't want to spend almost $80 after shipping on this.

Same here. I grabbed the regular edition. The big box edition is just too expensive and takes up too much space. I had it in my cart but decided against it. That edition was sold out within like 5 minutes.

From LRG's Twitter account Thimbleweed Park standard edition will be available until April 13th. Sounds like they're not making this a specified number produced game as they do with most of their releases. Collectors might not like that but I'm glad for it. I hope they continue producing large quantities of the Switch games to prevent the usual price gouging that happens with LRG releases.

This is a one time only thing from what I understand. They are trying to gauge how many units they should produce for future games. So hopefully as many people as possible pre-order.

Actually I heard they were doing the first few that way, to more fairly gauge how many units to produce. And maybe they'll consider continuing the pre-order model if it's successful.

Judging by how fast the Switch big box edition sold compared to the PS4 editions at any rate, things are looking good.

I really hope Golf Story comes soon. That's the one game I probably would've downloaded already if I hadn't heard the rumour that LRG was going to release it physical. And I really hope it's a pre-order, or else... I'll have waited this long, and I'll miss it!

That's the #1 game for me. They really should do Golf Story. Celeste too if that one isn't getting a physical release elsewhere.

I'm still waiting for Stardew Valley to get physical. 505Games released a physical for both Xbox One and PS4, so what's taking them so long to get one out for Switch?

Also in Feb. 2017, the developer of Snake Pass told me they were looking into a physical release, and that still hasn't happened yet (reason I still haven't played that game).
Quote:
At this time we're aiming to make Snake Pass a digital only title. That being said, we are in the process of exploring a physical release. No details just yet, but we're certainly looking into the possibility
If Story of Seasons gets released on Switch before Stardew Valley gets a physical release, then I'll get that game instead. Stardew Valley was just a placeholder anyway.

Doug in a recent AMA kept hinting about a title that was a "hole in one", so I'm gonna say it's likely

Thankfully this round of games appears to be open order like Saturday Morning RPG. No shortages. Thinking I'll go collector's edition for once. I'll be getting both games and the extra $20 seems well worth it for this package.

Night Trap is coming this summer. Hopefully this has a correct pre-order and not the mad dash for 45 seconds like they usually do.

Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition is coming to Switch, Limited Run Games has announced. A release is tentatively planned for this summer.

There was some talk about Night Trap heading to Switch last year. Screaming Villains apparently was willing to let it happen, but said Nintendo “pulled out two days later for a very random reason.” That reason was never clarified


It’s unclear what’s changed since then, but Night Trap will indeed be released on Switch. Limited Run Games is currently finishing up the port and will offer a physical version when it’s ready.
