Little Nightmares Update...

I checked on GameFAQs, and apparently someone had pre-ordered the US physical release. Since everyone has been stating it was cancelled, they said they emailed Play-Asia.

According to his response, Play-Asia stated it's still releasing and will be available for shipping on May 24th.

Did I miss something cause last time I checked we weren't getting a US physical...can anyone give some info?

Play Asia is the only place it is listed and status is "Pending stock arrival." so we will have to see. Maybe they printed some up and will go out who knows. It may be worth the gamble

Did you happen to order the Omake Books import of this? I got mine today - a tad disappointed...

Looks like the Bethesda / Gamestop partnership is continuing with special Wolfenstein II art at stores on release. The article mentions a sleeve, which makes me think it’s like a slipcover that goes over the case?

There are also alternate covers that can be downloaded and printed. I prefer the all-red cover, personally.

We’ll be releasing a special game sleeve with alternate artwork that can be picked up at any GameStop location across North America. No purchase is required, just walk into your local GameStop store starting on launch day, June 29, to pick up the special game sleeve while supplies last.

And this after I already put my order in for the PAL version with shop4megastore. Will be curious to see if any NA stock was shipped to Play Asia.

Highlighting "no purchase required" for everyone but they show just the insert. Be interesting to see what it is

Gotcha. That is nice of them. I just hope they have enough quantities to go around. If not, I’m sure they’ll be up on eBay. The Skyrim covers are.

I’m double-dipping in this one. I played it on the PS4 back when it originally released on PS4. Great game. Not as good as The New Order / The Old Blood, but still good.

A lot of Gamestops had the Skyrim covers months after launch. You just had to ask. I asked and got one for my copy that I had at home. A lot of Gamestop employees with give you those kind of things for free if you just ask. I had a guy deny me a Pokemon code once because they weren't supposed to go out til the next day and I'm just like...ok

@Miadaskate "Amazing" workaround for cheaping out on 32GB cartridges.

"Hey guys do you know that ugly sticker we have on our "physical" game!? Don't worry you can just put a new one and everything will be okay!!! It is magical cover that adds more GBs to the cheap cartridge!"

Yeah I am salty!

@TalonMan oh rats my fault.... I ordered 2 but hasn’t shown up yet. I understand they don’t come in a box.... is that true? If so they will hit ebay

Yup - no box, and that's why I'm disappointed.

That big "box" looking thing in the picture, is actually the book (it's an INCREDIBLY thick and, if you are into that kind of stuff and comics in general, it's actually quite attractive and very nicely put together!!!) - but since I'm a GAME collector (not a BOOK collector), I was definitely bummed that everything comes loose...

@Miadaskate Haha, exactly! I just hope (like I never hoped before) that other games will not be like that. Fallout game I am looking at you!

That is why Dark Souls Remastered is day one purchase!

On a side note is a 25$ Axiom Verge Collectors edition (multiverse) worth it. I am not sure because I am not BIG on indies but the game seems ok and the one person who made it seems really passionate for making it!

Axiom Verge is my favorite indie game on the Switch.

If you enjoy Metroidvanias like Cave Story or Steamworld Dig, don't skip Axiom Verge.

P.S. - Marvelous has announced that Gal Metal will be localized, set for release physically and digitally in Europe in Autumn. https://marvelousgames.com/blogs/games/gal-metal

P.P.S - Floor Kids twitter account hints at an upcoming physical release. https://mobile.twitter.com/FloorKidsCrew/status/9979776853380...

If you like Metroid, Axiom Verge is absolutely worth it. It’s a fan’s love letter to the genre, for sure.

GJ bethesda. Cool alts to be sure. I honestly just hope they bring the next Elder Scrolls game to Switch. Seeing their track record so far, optimization for switch has been surprisingly good. Perhaps I'm being too hopeful.

To be honest, I kind of like this idea of offering different cover sleeves that are artful. Fills the void of not having a LE/CE and makes for a cheap way for collectors and fans to be able to express themselves.
