Another long-awaited physical edition is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year, as tactical strategy game Into The Breach gets printed onto cartridges at last.
The physical edition, which is being published by Fangamer, includes a folded poster of a Rift Walker, inside cover art, a 3.3" by 4.5" manual, two sticker sheets, and the game cartridge, which will come with all previous updates as well as the Advanced Edition update that comes out in July.
The Advanced Edition adds new squads, weapons, pilots, enemies, and challenges, and will come to all platforms for free on July 19th.
You can now pre-order Into The Breach as a physical game from the Fangamer website, where it costs $34 plus shipping. The items will begin shipping on October 21st.
Thanks for the heads up, just pre-ordered! This is a nice little collector's edition of a really fantastic game
One of the best strategy games not enough people played.
Will be buying a copy on general principal.
Brilliant game. Almost a puzzle game as much as a strategy title, and one of the best of either genre. Not sure I’d get it for the stickers, though, when I already have it digitally!
I love this game, very meditative and relaxing. I had a stint last year where I was playing while watching old reruns of Robot Wars.
This is one of my most played Switch games by time played. Amazing game. If you enjoy strategy games you will love this. I would highly recommend it.
Somehow I had never heard of this game until seeing this article.
I proceeded to look up what this game was all about.
I then proceeded to preorder this physical edition.
@B238ben I have no clue how this slipped my radar all of these years! It checks all of the boxes!
I’ve been hoping they would release an Advanced form since I started playing. This possibility came from a similar move they made on FTL.
Great devs! I’ll buy anything that they release!
Getting a mobile port too, which weirdly will be free with a Netflix subscription.
I didn't even know there was an update coming out. Excited about that.
@Clark2k I see that your avatar pic is from a really sweet game that we should have all been playing on our Switch's by now...
When this first released on Switch you could get it for peanuts from one of the eshops, and I'm glad I did as double dipping now won't feel particularly painful in this instance.
Edit: I see it's a Fangamer release only. Sadface. Not sure I'll be importing.
@Gitface You can only imagine my disappointment when its release was postponed…
But of course that was an understandable move from Nintendo.
This physical version is so tempting. Heard only very positive things about this game, but I am a bit scared that I would spend more time with it than I want to.
Edit: But it will also be available on mobile at 19 July for Netflix subscribers like me. Could be a perfect mobile game!
Eh paying nearly 5x when on sale for plastic and some stickers..nahhh
@Clark2k What game is it if you don't mind me asking?
@Krull I'd say that's exactly right, but I'd go even further and say it's more of a puzzle game than a strategy game. They're both on the same continuum, puzzle and strategy, but I think Into the Breach's turn-based nature, lack of RNG, and small grid maps put it firmly in the puzzle category.
Reminds me of this:
@PhatToad Advance Wars 1+2 Switch :-/
Oh cool thanks I've been watching that game, i didn't recognise the graphics in your avatar.
Got it free on Epic and it's such a good game. Reminds me of Tactics Arena Online.
The game is also coming for free on Netflix to iOS and Android
Played it and beat it, but the grind for unlocks made me not come back. Great game fouled by a crappy unlock system that it didn’t need.
@SteamEngenius Putting in a physical medium will always feel more valuable than just starting a downloaded file. And hey, it’s just 40 quids: If you spend say 20 hours with this game (and I think you could spend a multifold), then it’s only 2 quids per hour of great entertainment. The free time I’m spendening on video games is what really is the scarce resource to me (and probably many others).
