Yeah, the Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute.

A triple pack of Cotton Guardian Force, Cotton 2, and Cotton Boomerang.

P.S. - Abarenbo Tengu & Zombie Nation double pack.

In other news; As an observation of my own, I have made note that I am seeing less and less Nicalis published games in the wild. Something just to keep tabs on for collectors.

@Paraka

Definitely the case for Ikaruga, Code of Princess, and Binding of Isaac, but a fair number of Nicalis releases are still available on their store. I'd argue PM Studios releases will be harder to find down the road. Just take a look at their online store. Compared to Nicalis's store, most everything at PM Studios is either low stock or sold out.

@Magician - No doubt about it, but I believe most of us have been on the same page when it came to PM a long time ago. I was merely making the observation of what we saw in PM early on happening now.

My listing on Amazon has seen Monkey Barrels drop off and re-emerge recently. Indicating problems, though small, finding more stock.

Which is something I am having trouble with locating Redeemer recently.

@Paraka

Ah Redeemer, a bit janky but a solid action game. One of the good Europe-exclusive physical releases worth having in the collection. Good luck with that hunt. I'm on the fence about picking up Onirike, Surviving the Aftermath, A Tale of Synapse, etc.

I don't know, aside from the Bamco anime Europe exclusives, most of the Europe retail physical exclusives aren't great.

Edit: P.S. - My top 20 Europe exclusive physical releases for collectors. In no particular order: Syberia series (3 games), Leisure Suit Larry series (2 games), WorldEnd Syndrome, 9 Monkeys of Shaolin, Warborn, Aggelos, Yono and the Celestial Elephant, Anima: Arcane Edition, Vostok Inc, Evergate, Super Chariot, Gelly Break, Vaporium, Inertial Drift, Pode, Kowloon High School Chronicle, Morbid: The Seven Acolytes, Unravel Two, The Count of Lucanor, and Redeemer.

There are several Bamco Europe physical releases that also got a Southeast Asian release with English, which is why I didn't include them above. Little Nightmares, Doraemon: Story of Seasons, Sword Art Online series (2 games), Naruto UNS4, One Piece series (2 games, Unlimited World Red and Pirate Warriors 3, although PW4 got a Murican release), etc.

Minor correction - it's just Guardian Force, not Cotton Guardian Force. Guardian Force isn't related to Cotton, it's just from the same developer.

@catsnpizzas

I don't care, I was only qouting the P-A listed name for the collection.

How about you go ask P-A to correct their listing while you're at it?

The name of the collection is Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute. The name of the game is just Guardian Force. Their details just say "Guardian Force". YOU are the one who said "Cotton Guardian Force" as if that was the game's name, not Play Asia, and if you're going to be so rude over a minor correction, how about you go ask whoever raised you to correct your manners.

Honestly ridiculous. Never pegged you as the kind of person who would jump to being so rude.

@Magician I have to say Mag, that reply does read uncharacteristically abrubt of you.

My apologies.

Everyone has their good days and their bad, and I'm having an especially bad day.

Trigger Witch is up on P-A, with free economy shipping for orders in the month of July no less.

Zelda + guns, what's not to like?
https://www.play-asia.com/exclusives

The Cruel King and the Great Hero uber edition is up on the NIS Store for $105. I think a $45 upcharge for the King plushie and acrylic puzzle is a bit much. Personally, I'll be waiting until the $60 storybook edition is listed on Amazon for their free shipping. Like most niche NIS published games, I imagine this game will be as valuable as The Liar and the Blind Prince in the second hand market.

Trigger Witch is also available from videogamesplus.ca if you want to order from Canada instead.

Not a game for me personally, but it's nice to see something that isn't another Vita or PS4 release from Play Exclusives again.

Today's also the last day of the open pre-order for the Premium Edition physicals of A Robot Named Fight, and Demon's Tier+.
If you wanted, you could order these together with Trigger Witch from videogamesplus.ca as an option.

I'm currently considering ordering Hoa (PM Studios US release), and Arietta of Spirits (Red Art Games EU release) together from VGP, but haven't done it yet to see if any other options show up.

Edit: I also just got word that my SteelBook edition of Skyward Sword HD has shipped from 365games. They had pretty limited stock, but it seems like you can still get this from My Nintendo Store (if you don't have difficulty placing an order with them, that is.)

@RupeeClock

Definitely grabbed a copy of A Robot Named Fight, although I skipped Demon's Tier+ since I have no interest in having a complete PEG collection and I already have a RAG copy. And as for Hoa, I snagged a copy of that along with Iris Fall (which...the NTSC version appears to be harder to find than a PAL copy), Ever Forward, and Ministry of Broadcast.

@Magician Really appreciate your 20 Europe exclusive physical releases list. Some of those flew under my radar.

Belexes

Magician

@Belexes

No problem. I probably could've listed 30, but I didn't want to list games I hadn't spent much time playing. It's also getting tougher to find PAL releases with a cartridge considering most second prints from the PAL region are just a code-in-the-box.

Does anyone ever order from play-asia? I was looking at some games available for pre-order yesterday and when I click on the links today I get a 404 page not found error, i'm not sure what's happened.

They have other games listed which have sold out, so i'd expect to see that if they were no longer available.

@MarioBrickLayer
On rare occasion they might take down a listing if it turns out they can't fulfill it.
For example, I was looking at getting Ikaruga for the Switch from Play-Asia, but that one ultimately became a Nicalis store exclusive, so Play-Asia eventually pulled their listing.

By the way, Play-asia always has a discount code "SWITCHMANIA" available for a 5% saving on any order.

Play-asia is very costly to order from these days due to shipping and taxes, as a UK customer I try to get imports elsewhere such as 365games or Bazaar-Bazaar.

MarioBrickLayer

@RupeeClock Thanks!

They had GRIS listed for a pre-order, it's releasing on a few French sites in October too, but the listing appears to have been taken down.

I missed the Special Reserve release of the game.

MarioBrickLayer

RupeeClock

@MarioBrickLayer
I guess that the French release couldn't be secured by Play-asia then, it happens.
I would see if other sites will potentially secure import stock anyway, given it would be European stock.
