Same here. I already have the Best Buy version of SMB. I also don't care for the LRG cover art. So I'm alright with skipping it.

[OT] I got a shipping notification from Amazon and I had to do a double take at the invoice. What in the world had I ordered? Then after looking at the item list I was reminded how many great games were released over the past week at retail. Normally only my import orders cost more than a couple hundred dollars, lol.

DARQ: Complete Edition opens for preorder via LRG this coming Tuesday. Distribution game, not a numbered release, feel free to skip if you're only concerned about a complete collection. Although...it is a solid horror puzzler/platformer.

Listed only in Europe for now

Did the two Ori games receive stand-alone physical releases last year in the US like in Europe ? ūü§Ē

The Ori games did receive a standard physical release last year, separate from the lavish Collector's Edition that is exclusive to iam8bit's site.
For both these releases, each game is a separate package with a separate game card.

It's interesting to see them do a package release such as this, which are often preferable.
I believe the JP / Asia release of the Blaster Master Zero Chronicles is today. I have it ordered from Bazaar-Bazaar and I'm expecting shipment very soon.
https://www.bazaar-bazaar.com/products/blaster-master-zero-tr...
They import stock and then ship it domestically in the UK, they're very useful for all kinds of imports including stock from Limited Run Games and Premium Edition Games.

I frequently pre-order stuff from 365games, and plan to tomorrow on payday as they currently have a generous reward scheme promotion of 10% back in player points towards discount vouchers.
https://www.365games.co.uk/pre-orders/nintendo-switch/sort-da...
Some notable recent additions to their Switch pre-order listings include:
Gris - EU Release: https://www.365games.co.uk/nintendo-switch-games/gris-nintend...
Carrion - EU Release: https://www.365games.co.uk/nintendo-switch-games/carrion-nint...
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus - EU Release: https://www.365games.co.uk/nintendo-switch-games/doki-doki-li...
Spiritfarer - EU Release: https://www.365games.co.uk/nintendo-switch-games/spiritfarer-...
And more, if you take a look.
These games I've listed here are all ones I've pre-ordered or already received from elsewhere though.

Mmm, I've got my eye on that Mary Skelter Finale LE exclusive to Iffy's store.

That hardcover novel series covering all three games alone is worth the $55 upcharge, imo.

@RupeeClock Thanks for posting that! I wanted to order Gris but missed out on the Special Reserve release. It was listed on Play-Asia a few weeks ago, but they took it down, I'll order from 365 now instead!

Ori Collector's Edition is back in stock at iam8bit, promising a Q4 2021 fulfillment.
https://www.iam8bit.com/collections/ori/products/ori-collecto...

Keep in mind that the physical games themselves are available at wider retail without this lavish collector's edition, but I can attest to how nice this set is as there's definitely a demand for it.

@RupeeClock

I wonder if the newer prints for Ori have all the updates on cartridge?

For two of the best metroidvanias ever...I think I could be enticed to double dip for standard copies.

Hopefully if they're reprints, they are fully up to date.
That's the dilemma of physical purchases. Damned if you don't order early enough, damned if you don't wait for a reprint.

@RupeeClock I owned all the Street Fighters on my SNES. So i guess I'm used to that pain lol.

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

@RupeeClock - Funny enough, days ago I looked up the resell value of that CE. Was going for about 300+.

Dropped a 150 right now due to that announcement. Amusing.

NIS America announces Blue Reflection Second Light. Sailor Moon + Persona? Ehhhhhhhhhhh...I think I'll pass. I enjoy cultured rpgs like Hyperdimenson Neptunia, but I can do without all the social-sim stuff.

Looks somewhat like Little Nightmares 1 & 2 - so I will be picking it up.

And if that Ori Collection has all the updates + single cart, I'd have to get it. We will have to wait and see.

So I learned something interesting about the released Blaster Master Zero Trilogy.
http://blastermaster-zero.com/en/zero_trilogy/feature/

Aside from including all DLC for the 1st and 2nd games, it also exclusively features JP voice-overs for them. I don't think the third game has these voice-overs though.

This makes it a more complete package than the previous LRG releases, but Zero 3 will more than likely have DLC in the future that would be included in the LRG release.
So, I guess neither package will be totally complete. The individual LRG releases will lack voice overs, the trilogy release will lack the DLC for Zero 3.

@RupeeClock Would they hold the trilogy release up for Zero 3 DLC? That or they could re-release at a later time as a 'deluxe' version. That would piss me off, LOL.

As mentioned by the NL article, Super Rare is opening preorders for Littlewood next. Not as amazing of an announcement as Hand of Fate 2 would be for me personally. But any announcement that knocks a game off my wishlist and puts it in my hands physically is a winner in my book. Pretty cool.

Holy guacamole. Just a week and a half after launch and Terra Trilogy is already discounted down 50%. That has it be some sort of record? Anywho, at that price I couldn't say "no", looks like a fine arcadey game.

@Magician No record. There are plenty of games that launch with a sale price.
