At the Limited Run Games' E3 Press Conference last June, it was revealed Atooi would be entering the world of physical Nintendo 3DS releases for the first (and most likely last time ever) with the release of the Atooi Collection. It includes the following titles: Mutant Mudds, Bomb Monkey, Xeodrifter, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, and Chicken Wiggle
If you've been wondered what's happened to, it's still on the way. In an update via Twitter a few days ago, Atooi said the title had just been approved by Nintendo Lotcheck and the small-sized developer founded by Jools Watsham was now waiting for the Japanese company to approve the cover art, cart label and a few other things. Once that's done, manufacturing will begin, and it will then go on sale via Limited Run Games.
For 3DS collectors outside of this region, this physical release is expected to be region locked to North America, and there are seemingly no plans at this point in time to release it elsewhere:
If the option of a region free physical 3DS release is available, we will take it. But, all available information at this time suggests Atooi Collection will be a North American region release.
In related news, Red Art Games will be releasing a physical copy of Xendrifter on the Switch. Read more about this in yesterday's post.
