Manifold Garden up for pre-order at iam8bit.

I haven’t heard of it either.

I was wondering who negotiated with William Chyr to leave English off the Japanese physical release of Manifold Garden, LRG or iam8bit. Now I know.

I'll consider it for a future order if they still have it in stock.
It was showcased on an Indie World presentation and looks neat, but apparently isn't a very deep puzzler and is more a visual spectacle.

But yeah, I don't like this trend of leaving languages off of releases to discourage importing from other territories.

No surprise, LRG will be publishing Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ghoul Patrol physically.

@Magician - Hearing other rumors that LRG has a few other Disney-related physicals in their announcements as well.

@Paraka

If that's true, Disney's Afternoon Collection or perhaps an Epic Mickey collection?

I'd appreciate either and/or both.

@Magician - I am guessing more the lines of other LucasArts stuff they acquired.

If Aspyr is still working on things SW, suspecting KotOR Remaster being a legitimate thing.

Disney deals with LRG isn't too surprising after the Star Wars success.
This gives me hope for a Switch physical release of Duck Tales Remastered myself.

That said, Josh Fairhurst just yesterday tweeted about the Zombies Ate My Neighhours / Ghoul Patrol news, and added that his tweet wasn't an announcement about a physical release.

But the LRG account tweeted a tease about it the same day, so whatever really.

@RupeeClock - To be fair, he defended his personal tweet. And legally if he announced it before the set date from LRG (assumingly), that can be a rough legal situation.

There are reasons companies seek to squash leaks.

@Paraka
Yeah, even though LRG belongs to him, it might be violating a business agreement with the developer or publisher he and his company are working with.

365games recently opened pre-orders for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, but only recently updated with a picture of the box.
https://www.365games.co.uk/nintendo-switch-games/tony-hawks-p...
This reveals that the game both requires a Nintendo Switch Online membership, and an internet download.
The NSO membership claim is unusual, because that's been required for any games that use online play, unless it's communicating that the game is unplayable without it?

The usual takeaway is that this is Activision being a crappy company as per usual.

Does anyone here know why Raiden IV is on the American Amazon.com but not the Canadian Amazon.ca?

@RupeeClock The PS4 version also had an internet download, but it was unrelated to the single player content of the game, as I recall. I wonder if they're doing that again with the Switch version.

The Castlevania collection is live for pre-order in LRG. The stupid thing is that they still do not show what track will be played in the damn shadow box! How dumb is that!?!

Zuljaras

Magician

@Zulijaras It's only dumb in that it sounds as though that omission will make or break your decision to purchase the most expensive version of what LRG will be offering for the collection.

@Magician I did not quite understand that, sorry

It is dumb that I base my purchase decision on the sound box?

@Zuljaras
I don't think it is.
If the most expensive option selling itself on a pretty box that lights up and plays music, the music selection is important, even if it's only one track.

Like, if it were Vampire Killer, that'd strongly discourage me from considering it because that track is overrated as hell.

@RupeeClock I would only buy out of stupid nostalgia if it is Bloody Tears. My very first Castlevania was Simon's Quest Also my morning alarm track is Bloody Tears
