I can't be the only one who prefers physical retail games over digital, so I made a list after searching for my own, and I will update it continuously until the end of time. This list is for North American release dates only for now. I will also include games exclusive to other regions that have English language options. Keep in mind many of the games listed as UK exclusive are also released in other regions like the Netherlands and Australia, etc. Feel free to let me know if there is something you would like added.

I think it is Gamestop exclusive but don't quote me on that. For $20 it's a must have for me.

I've read the same thing. It's one of those weird things where Gamestop is a publisher now.

Yes that's actually true. I think.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

It's a Gamestop exclusive in Europe too, €25 at their Ireland website which is the same price as the Xbox One and PS4 versions.

They appear to have shut down the UK website oddly, but the price converts to about £21.50 according to Google, but postage is €7.50, adding around £6.44.

My guess is that Has-Been Heroes is GameStop exclusive worldwide as they themselves have licensed the game for physical distribution. It's also exclusive in Australia (and New Zealand?) to EB Games, which has retained its original franchise name here. The asking price here is $39.95 (the PS4/Bone versions are priced the same).

While the budget price is very tempting, it doesn't look like something that I would enjoy on a shiny new console. I already have similar looking games with higher production values (Shin Megami Tensei springs to mind) that I'm yet to scratch the surface of. I think I'll give it a pass unless it receives glowing reviews.

I skipped Lego City Undercover on Wii U due to its long load times, but I'll be more tempted to have a look in on the Switch version. It would be cool if they did a port of the 3DS version as well (and address all of the performance issues in that version). Honestly, they should have just bundled them together. That way, they could easily demand a full retail price for the complete package. Seems like a missed opportunity on the publisher's part.

Disgaea 5 Complete has been rated by the Australian Classification Board just the other day (it's not an IARC rating, so a physical release is assured).

@sillygostly
NIS is already selling the collectors edition of Disgaea 5 Complete Edition on their website

http://store.nisamerica.com/disgaea-5-complete-limited-editio...

So that's a definite physical release, at least in N.A. Sonic Mania has a Collectors Edition too, but it includes a download code for the game.

They really need to ensure Rime, Shovel Knight, Yooka Laylee and Rayman Legends gets a physical version. I'd have loved to see I Am Setsuna in a boxer version. Major missed opportunity on SE part.

Interesting. Well... guess I'll have to suck it up and interact with a Gamestop employee for the first time in years lol.

I'll just order it online haha

@JaxonH : Unfortunately they do not ship to "PAL regions", which includes Australia, so we have no other option but to wait for a local release (and it's extremely unlikely that the collector's edition will ever see the light of day here).

I think whether or not we get more retail releases depends somewhat on Bomberman R, Binding of Isaac, Redout selling decently well. Nintendo needs to be encouraging publishers to get their games on store shelves if not even offsetting the cost of the cartridge vs blu ray. Have you seen the 3ds & Wii U sections of Gamestop recently? Combined they are about 1/3 of the Xbox section. I imagine future 3rd party support in general will depend on the sales of the 3rd party games from the first year, so I plan on supporting as much as possible. So far for me it's only Zelda, Binding of Isaac, and Has Been Heroes.

There is a lack of any strong third party titles at launch, so I doubt that Bomberman and the like are going to sell in high numbers, especially at those ridiculous asking prices. Bomberman is priced at $90 in Australia (and that's after they've so generously marked the price down from $100). That's AAA pricing. Konami is having an absolute laugh if they think that people are going to be paying that much for what looks like an eShop-tier game. Even Nintendo's own Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush were priced at a more sensible $60 here (which is also the standard retail price for premium 3DS games).

I'll most likely grab Zelda and 1-2 Switch at launch, but I just can't justify the stupid asking price for Bomberman, as fun as it could be in a group.

I think they might do well, purely on the basis that...what other Switch games are you gonna get at a store?

Yeah exactly. If anything, Konami should be applauded for actually making a smart business move. That Bomberman game looks fun, but cheap to make. In fact part of me believes it was an old Wii/Wii U game that got brought back from the dead to reap the launch sales of Switch. I love the box art.

I love the box art too, and I'm keen to give the Bomberman series a try, but the asking price is just way too much for what the game appears to offer. I resent it so bloody much, because I'll most likely end up caving in.

@sillygostly Why not try another entry in the franchise first? I believe there's a Bomberman game on the Wii Shop for $10, and maybe even on the Wii U eShop too (or 3DS). If not, then I'm sure there are VC Bomberman titles available. I'd even recommend getting one of the entries on the N64 or GameCube if you have those systems, I'm sure they give you more bang for you buck. Bomberman Adventure on the GBA is one of my personal favourites, the story mode in that game borrows some RPG elements, and it works brilliantly.
