Physical pre-order listings for Cuphead do exist, and as a standard retail release.

The usual story has been "we'll release it when the DLC is finished", but there hasn't been any further news since the DLC got finished and released.
They might be ensuring they have the game fully updated for last minor fixes before they commit to a print.

LRG will be distributing Tiny Troopers Global Ops in Murica for Wired Productions. Meh, it's...not a great series. If it isn't a numbered release I feel I can skip it. However, Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 2 will be a different matter. I assume LRG and Pix'N Love will both handle that release physically and I hope SNK Card Fighters Clash 1 & 2 will be included.

Originally a code-in-the-box "physical" release from Markt Technik and Funbox Media last year, seems Premium Edition's next game will be Rack N Ruin. Unfortunately, reviews aren't great. Probably an easy skip even though it's a boutique release.

@Magician Looks rather uninspired to me.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

Agreed. Honestly, I can't imagine anyone beyond completionist-collectors ordering a copy.

@Bunkerneath

I think the point RupeeClock is making is that most people who know about Fight Crab...already have an eastern copy, and the news of a western release is probably landing on deaf ears. At least for most of the regular members who post in this thread anyhow. It's interesting news, but....meh.

@Bunkerneath @Magician
Seeing it get an international release is still cool, but yes most people who wanted a copy may already have an eastern copy.
Releases like this give games an Amazon retail presence though, for a wider reach.
The copy I bought came with a physical soundtrack CD, but not a poster or stickers.
It's undoubtedly going to be a folded poster inside the game case, I never saw the appeal of folded posters with all their creases.

Special Reserve have just made an announcement about Cult of the Lamb, they are doing a release and there will be a general release, DLC will be on the cart of the special reserve but not the general release. There is a table comparing the different options:-

General retail is Q1 2023, Special Reserve is Q2...

@MarioBrickLayer
I'm glad that they've chosen to be open about their releases getting a retail release, too.
There's a couple other things worth mentioning.
The pre-order window is August 11th until December 11th, including for the "Switch Reserve" edition.
Switch reserves are numbered, despite not being a limited quantity. That will mean people who pre-order later will have an idea for a total print run.

I prefer to do bundle orders, so I'm not gonna order this day one. Inscryption looks to be one of their upcoming physicals so I'm waiting on that.

@RupeeClock agreed, I think they have handled this announcement really well, i am a bit frustrated with the wait for Broforce, so it looks like they have learned from that and improved things.
I also prefer to bundle orders, i've been holding off on ordering Gato Roboto so I could bundle it with Cult of the Lamb.

Well now, after my major move, I have managed to move everything in my games Collection. But the budget is now super tight. Looks like I gotta dedicate myself to just the limited prints.

Other than limitedgamenews.com, any other limited game trackers out there to assist in the Boutique stuff?

@Paraka Both the "nscollectors" and "limited print games" reddits are okay sources.

Also, arguably the biggest Switch completion-collector of us all JP Switchmania is usually up to date; peruse his website or follow his twitter.

@Magician - Fantastic, these all will be helpful, thank you so much.

In other collector news, once my LRG and Play-Asia arrives this week, I am surpassing 1300 games for Switch. And rediscovered all my GCN games from this move.

Major wins all around.

Limited Run are releasing Mutant Mudds and Xeodrifter..They have both had physicals before via Super Rare Games and Red Art Games...

That's $70- $80 I won't have to spend since I already have both. It's too bad Xeodrifter is sold out over at RAG. I imagine buying from them would've been cheaper than buying from LRG for European customers.

@Magician - I imagine the Amazon variant will likely crawl its way to EU though. Noticed a few LRG BB distributed titles on it before.
