I snagged Souldiers from Pix'N Love and Card Shark from Special Reserve. I was a little miffed I missed out on the "reserve" edition of Card Shark, but I can live with a standard copy. However, I am thrilled to have reserved a collectors edition for Souldiers. I really like Pix'N Love's Unruly Heroes CE, so I hope the one for Souldiers is much the same.

Switch Physical Collection - 978 games (as of August 10th, 2022)

@Magician There are a few fron your list I eeally want!!

I hope The Touryst, Fez and Islanders are also on the list!

I wonder if Cuphead would get a general physical release or via someone like Limited Run?

After pre-ordering Souldier from Pix’N Love I could not help but think ”what if the cart doesn’t have the latest updates?” The listing says ”First edition” after all and perhaps later versions will be more complete.

Then again, Unruly Heroes from Pix’N Love was complete on cart.

@Golgafinkle I won't lie, it's a gamble. Every boutique publisher has released games that have had post-patching to some degree. I like to believe they strive to release products that are complete-on-cartridge but they're not always successful.

Yup, I read the review. It doesn't deter me from keeping my Pix'N Love preorder. I can only hope it'll ship with a patch on cartridge.

@Magician
The pre-order page mentions a release date of September 2022.
That suggests that the physical card might be in production already, but this also depends on all the other parts of the package.

I'm looking forward to playing it when it arrives, but as ever, it bothers me when a physical release isn't data complete.
It's unusual for a boutique release like this to come so close after the digital launch though.
Compared to Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan, more recently getting a First Press Games release (still in pre-order), which was released digitally in 2019.

I read the review also, but still hoping the necessary patches are on cart in september.

I would not mind if Pix’N Love decided to postpone the physical release in order to accomodate the inclusion of those much needed patches. Oh well, fingers crossed.

@Golgafinkle @Magician Special Reserve Ges delayed Broforce for a patch/DLC so it has happened before with one of these smaller distributors...

A few pix'n love titles (Young Souls, WindJammers 2 etc) still haven't sold out, so I might hold off for more info before deciding what to do.

Does anybody know if Nintendo reprints include the updates on the cartridge? For example are there any cartridges out there with Mario Tennis Aces 3.0 or Mario Golf 4.0? I'm talking about updates not dlc.

@Aurumonado - For the most part, Nintendo reprints a set that usually has previous "fixit" patches, like Day Ones.

But never have done a version with the latest all on cart, unless specifically announced like Japan.

I'm going to place an order with Play Asia, does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking to import games to the UK which I can't get over here, so far I'm looking at:-

  • Clockwork Aquario
  • Monkey Barrels
  • The Hong Kong Massacre
  • Okami HD

I'm also considering Fatel Frame, but not sure I want it.

Ideally I want to avoid a situation where I find a game on their site in a months time which I really want! I've gone through loads of pages on their site, but I don't think the filtering works very well.

@MarioBrickLayer
Occasionally, import games and pre-orders that you may want can be found at UK domestic retailers, such as 365games or Bazaar-Bazaar. You may also be able to import certain games from videogamesplus.ca with free shipping.
These are all as long as the Asia or NTSC-J release of a game supports English language.

https://www.bazaar-bazaar.com/products/the-hong-kong-massacre...
https://videogamesplus.ca/products/the-hong-kong-massacre-swi...

This may be preferable to ordering them to Play-Asia.
Although in this case it looks like you'll only find the JP release of Clockwork Aquario on Play-Asia.
If you're placing an order at Play-Asia regardless, I might suggest these additions:
https://www.play-asia.com/pocky-rocky-reshrined-english/13/70... (uncensored release, compared to the international releases)
https://www.play-asia.com/the-company-man-english/13/70f4kv
https://www.play-asia.com/koumajou-remilia-scarlet-symphony-e...
https://www.play-asia.com/final-fantasy-x-x-2-hd-remaster-mul... (this release has both games on-cart, instead of providing a download code)
https://www.play-asia.com/blaster-master-zero-trilogy-metafig... (the first and second games including additional voice acting not present in other releases)

You could also just browse the Asia English Games section with a Switch compatible filter for yourself: https://www.play-asia.com/games/asia_english_games/14/712bl#f...

@korosanbo
Keep in mind that's an Amazon Marketplace seller, not Amazon directly.
It should still be fine though, you'd just be buying an import copy since Capcom never did an international physical release for Okami HD.

@RupeeClock Thank you so much for taking the time to post all that!!! There's some really useful info in there and a few games for me to consider!

@MarioBrickLayer
Oh yeah, if you decide to shop at Bazaar-Bazaar, they have a first-time customers voucher.
AMZ001 for a one-time 5% discount on your order. Consider using it when you place an especially large order.
They ship out items individually, too.

BATS - Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad (June 7th)
"D", a 3D0 game

There were also some additional releases specifically just for PS5 or Xbox, like Doom 64 or Shantae games that already had Switch and PS4 releases.

I'm pretty excited that Tetris Effect Connected is finally getting its physical release, and also keen to get the Go! Go! Kokopolo games. I was looking forward to UnderMine too.

@Zuljaras

I agree, the abscence of a Castlevania Advance Collection was pretty disapointing. However, Undermine and the Anniversary Collection - Arcade Classics was a pleasant surprise.

The game Death Wish Enforcers also caught my attention. Reminded me of Sunset Riders on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. May be a future purchase for me.

Many games were not given a release date/order date though. Not even Shredder’s Revenge.

@RupeeClock tnx for the list! I was genuinely surprised because of the Doom Eternal release, really looking forward to that one and to Tetris Effect. My to get games will be:

  • Shadowrun collection
  • Garden Story
  • Blossom Tales 2
  • Star Wars: KOTOR II
  • Turtles shredders revenge
  • Doom Eternal
  • Tetris Effect Connected

Do you by any chance perhaps know if turtles and the shadowrun collection will be a worldwide release which will just be distributed by LRG?

@Zuljaras it’ll come! They do one Konami collection each 1/2 year or so. Now it was contra, and soon it’ll be the arcade collection and turtles collection. Maybe the advance castlevania collection after? Or Suikoden collection, castlevania requiem, or arcade 2 with the Simpsons (one can dream)…
