@Teksetter It's getting a general retail release in the UK like I noticed GAME and Smyths Toys has it up for preorder.

Physical copies for Cocoon coming via iam8bit.

Fantastic. Yes. Please and thank you.

Thanks for the insight! So this was a shadow drop!
I'm glad that our friends in Jolly 'ol England won't have to rely on LRG. Try to be nice and don't rub it in when you receive your copies 3-4 months faster than us Yanks!

There was also an announcement for Spooky's Jumpscare Castle for physical as well.

I remember a small spike of fandom, then... Nothing.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but for those curious, the Japanese Best Price version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has the same 1.03 version on the cartridge as the original release.

That's disappointing to hear, the latest available update is 1.5.0, which has two new gameplay modes that also support local and online co-op play, 3 premium cosmetics parks and a free one based on the Shantae series.

The base game is 8.8 GiB whilst the 1.5.0 update is 6.59 GiB.
That would be 15.6 GiB altogether, which equates to 16.45 gigabytes so sadly it wouldn't fit on a 16GB game card.
That's probably why they didn't include the latest update, the cost would increase from needing to use a 32GB game card.

Thank you for the warning! No need to trade in my old Bloodstained cartridge, then. It saves me money but I still feel it’s a missed opportunity.

I'm actually a big fan of Spooky's, I didn't realize it was on Switch in the first place! I see the release is by Rock It Games, can anyone vouch for them? They look new...

Not sure if anyone has put this up but just noticed it on Amazon UK (whilst checking on other pre-orders)

DoinkSoft Collection:

Gato Roboto
Gunbrella
Demon Throttle

Already have Gato Roboto, but really want Gunbrella so might have to double dip this

@bunkerneath I already have both Demon Throttle and Gato Roboto (two copies actually, due to the physical shipped with the game breaking bug), but I would rather like Gunbrella too.

Demon Throttle is one of those games that got heavily reduced in GAME, it sells for £13 and is part of their 2 for £20 deal, same if you see it in their stores.

Incidentally, so is Neon White.

For some reason, Neon White and Bomb Rush Cyberfunk physical copies started going for super cheap somewhat recently.

It can't help but be noticed that iam8bit releases on their own site are only for collector's editions now, whilst Special Reserve Games basically closed up shop to change their physical release strategy with a proper retail presence. This is probably why the Doinksoft Collection was made.

Edit: also just spotted that Yars Rising, the surprise Wayforward Atari collab re-imagining Yars Revenge as a Metroidvania, is apparently getting a physical release. No concrete release date yet it seems.

That Doinksoft collection is very enticing! Much like the Bitmap Bureau Collection in that it's 3 quality-looking indie games that I'd love to own physically, but never purchased singly.

I'm glad to see an ESRB version is listed on Amazon in the US, too, with an August 30 release date. I'll probably inquire about preorders at Gamestop tomorrow, when I pick up my copy of Paper Mario TTYD.

Final year of the Switch or not, there has been plenty to buy!

Yeah, I'm not enthusiastic about double-dipping on Gato Roboto or Demon Throttle, but Gunbrella will sway my hand.

Huh, found Tomb Raider collection on Amazon UK.
At least I don't have to go through Limited Run and they deliver to Guernsey

Spotted that Ty the Tasmanian Tiger series is getting another physical release in both UK and US, this time with no download codes.

https://www.game.co.uk/en/ty-the-tasmanian-tiger-bush-rescue-...
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tasmanian-Tiger-Bush-Rescue-Bundle/d...

This package includes the remasters of the 1st, 2nd, and 4th games (the third hasn't been ported to Switch).
The previous double-pack release of 1 HD and 2 HD only provided the second game as a download code, this time all three games are promised to be on the game card.
The 4th game was made more recently and is a 2D sidescroller, unlike the original 3D platformer trilogy.

They're also offering a deluxe edition that includes an art book and a soundtrack, the US release is a download code version whilst the UK release has 2 CDs

The LRG blowout sale is tomorrow. Do any of you know if they let you add current preorders to the order if you're ordering from their blowout?

@Aurumonado
Offhand, I tend to doubt that LRG will allow you to combine the shipments, but it’s worth asking! If you sent them a message today, maybe they’ll reply tomorrow? It’s kindve unlikely though, as it’s a holiday weekend here in the States, plus they’re probably busy prepping for the sake.

Either way, good luck and happy shopping!
