My Switch collecting philosophy? Preorder most games I'm interested in playing. Shovelware games (Hello Kitty Kruisers) or games I have zero interest in playing (Attack on Titan 2) can wait for a holiday sale. Japanese games are tougher to gauge because some genres of games don't require an English localization to enjoy, like the upcoming shmup Psyvariar Delta. I'm thinking about preordering the limited edition for that.

P.S. - don't forget about that awesome-looking collectors editions for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. One from Japan and one from North America. The preorder for the North American version opens May 4th via Arc System Work's online store.

@HiFX what’s the inside cover look like? I bought it from amazon and it has Wild Guns Reloaded printed on the inside. Major bummer.

Apparently all copies of GG2 were misprinted with the internal art from Wild Guns Reloaded. I understand if it's a bummer, but looking on the bright side this will make your copy a lot more collectable if they do a fixed reprint. I'm not a collector myself, but a lot of collectors want misprints like this more than anything.

Now that LRG is in full swing with switc releases, should I expect that they’ll continue the way they are now with 1 new switch release each month? I would imagine Saturday morning rpg will be May, then I’ve heard slime San and now night trap in the summer. Anyone know any more than me?

Anyone know what is up with the Switch version of Little Nightmares Complete Edition? Gamestop is the only one that seems to list it, and for some reason it is $60 when both the PS4 and Xbox1 versions are $30. There is no picture, so I'm wondering if this is some cookie cutter placeholder that is wrong.

@SpaceAce13 I scoured the AMA they did on reddit, and they claim they are looking at 1-2 switch games a month because they got a little too crazy in the past with PS4 and Vita games apparently. They aren't obligated to do so, but I imagine they are probably going to try to get the best games possible signed for publishing. Since they are doing open pre-orders for the standard editions for the switch, it seems they want everyone to get a copy of their switch titles and make the LEs at their standard 3k print run. Still once their print run is done its done. So I think they are trying a new approach and I like it. Open pre-orders is a game changer, so I think keeping to 1-2 games a month means quality will remain high, and collectors won't get overly exhausted. I just hope they get good games. Night Trap is just a meme, and I think it is a shame they are taking that one on, with a special edition too no less....But if they got some really hard hitting game like celeste I think they'd be set.

@hirokun I believe someone mentioned it's exclusive to Gamestop, though I don't think that's been confirmed. I looked through the last 5-6 pages of the thread, but wasn't able to find where I saw that. Went ahead and reserved a copy at my local store just in case.

Firstly, I believe little nightmares may be a GameStop exclusive as it’s the only place I’ve seen it so far, as far as the price hike... switch tax I guess. That’s quite a difference though. With that said, I’m super excited for it.

With LRG, I agree. There are a lot of great games they could publish like Celeste as you mentioned or golf story which I would love to see. I’m excited for night trap since I’ve never played it, but do admit it is 100% a gimmick and I’ll probably play it once and never again. Do they plan on doing open pre-orders in perpetuity for standard? Or is that just a feeling out process on the first few to see what the demand is?

@SpaceAce13 oh wow. I wish studios would stop doing gamestop exclusives, such cancer... I may import it then if it turns out cheaper. Even play Asia has the JP version for $33. IMO its a question of, paying extra money for an ESRB rating over a CERO or PEGI etc. rating. I know NA collecting is nuts though.

Yeah golf story would be great too, I heard it was really fun. Even the newly announced President of Nintendo says it was a game he likes.

Yes, LRG said they will continue with open pre-orders for switch games going forward. Obviously the Limited Edition boxes with extra goodies are a finite amount, the first two have been 3000. I didn't know LRG existed when they did thimbleweed park. But I got the second big box for the dual pack of flinthook and mercenaries. It sold the first 2000 in the morning in under 3 minutes. So that is nuts, if your internet is slow you will miss it.

EDIT:yeah I checked. Little Nightmare on Switch is preordering for 2800Yen on Amazon Japan. That is less than $26USD...So even with shipping being probably $10 that is still a much better price. I just don't know if it will have language options for English which would be a big mistake if it doesn't.

Grip is now available for preorder on Amazon North America.

Gamestop has had their preorder open for Grip for a while, but I loathe giving Gamestop my money.

Ugh...confirmed, Naruto UNS Japan-only physical version does not support English subs. Makes me sad. There are a couple One Piece physical releases but none for Naruto? Oh well, I guess I'll wait for a steep eShop sale.

Are there multiple people editing this or is it just one person?

Thankfully, I’ve been able to get both LRG big boxes so far, and i plan on getting all the special editions they release, just trying to figure out how much money that will cost me each month haha.

That crazy about little nightmares though. That price difference is massive! If you don’t care about region and such, that’s definitely the way to go

@Sawyoudown .............. It is. I don't know how this site works (if you can add admins to a thread) I just joined early on to be apart of the community with physical carts. I have kept my own list because to be honest I haven't found one perfect solution. I am on 3 or 4 forums, here and twitter to keep up.

@Pasicci is working on a website that will probably be the most in-depth solution but it's not finished yet.
