Original Article: Strictly Limited Games, a Stuttgart-based publisher which specialises in releasing limited physical editions of digital games, has today announced the launch of a new release for Fox n Forests on Nintendo Switch.

The game has been described as a "stylish 2D action jump ‘n’ run title", taking heavy inspiration from 16-bit retro goodness in all areas from its graphics to its music. Players take on the role of a clever fox called Rick who is searching for a mysterious forest. Rick can shoot, punch, and jump through the forest level by level, fighting countless enemies, solving puzzles, and even changing the seasons to eliminate foes along the way. We praised the game for its "fantastically accurate portrayal of 16-bit platforming" in our review, but noted how its "fiddly controls and its short length" ruined the experience a little.

Fox n Forests will be treated to both a Collector's Edition and a Standard physical edition. The Collector's Edition is limited to just 1,000 units, going on sale on 18th November for €49.99, with 3,000 Standard Edition copies following just one week later for the cheaper price of €29.99. As you can see in the images above, the Collector's Edition appears to benefit from a gorgeous outer casing that seems to hold some extra goodies inside, but further details about the package's contents haven't yet been shared. You'll be able to snag either version of the game directly from Strictly Limited Games' website.
