Limited Run Games August Digital Digest

Digital Digest | August 2023

The dog days of summer are here! But we’re not letting up on our awesome release slate! This August, we dropped Quake II and another set of slammin’ TMNT tunes, and we’re getting ready for some big September releases, like Jurassic Park Classic Games Collection and future game of the year contender Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties Definitive Edition. Until then, sit back and recap the last four weeks in this month’s Digital Digest, starting with…

PAX WEST 2023!Pax West 2023

In case you missed this week’s announcement, we’re returning to PAX West next week! We’ll have the usual awesome selection of games and books in tow, but it’s the convention special you’re after, isn’t it? Well, we’re happy to announce the third installment in our VHS tape editions from a galaxy far, far away: STAR WARS: Knights of the Old Republic II! You’ll be able to pick them up at booth #1939 while supplies last!

But that’s not the only reason to stop by our booth. Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore was one of our biggest LRG3 surprises, and you can finally get your hands on some gameplay! We’ll be demo’ing Arzette and another unannounced game from our friends at The Mix all weekend, so come by and meet some games for the first time!

Speaking of The Mix, they’re hosting a free offsite event alongside their digital showcase at PAX West this year, and Limited Run Games will be tagging along with merch, games, and special guests. And guess what? It’s open to the public (with registration).

Finally, River City Girls fans can get their merch and games signed by director Bannon Rudis and artist David Liu at 4PM on Saturday at our booth! We’ll also have some River City Girls 2 convention specials in stock, but feel free to bring any River City Girls swag to sign!

So We Heard You Like VHS Tapes…Mythforce on Console

Who hasn’t wanted to play their favorite Saturday Morning Cartoon?

Since 1983, when Dragon’s Lair took arcades by storm, we’ve all known that cartoon graphics and video games go together like peanut butter and chocolate. But it’s not just the graphics that make Mythforce one of our must-pre-order titles of the summer—it’s the vibe!

The epic team-up of Victoria the valiant Knight, Rico the charming Rogue, Maggie the wise Mage, and Hawkins the deadly Hunter, and their adventure in a land of sword and sorcery, fits right in beside the fantasy ensembles and worlds of the likes of He-Man and Thundercats. It’s a great environment for roguelike gameplay and first-person action that lets you step into the shoes of a courageous champion.

But you won’t face the tyranny of the vampire lord, Deadalus alone! You can adventure through crypts and castles with your friends in local or online multiplayer. Be the dream team you and your buddies wanted to be on the playground all those years ago!Mythforce VHS Edition

Want to take nostalgia to the next level? Mythforce gets the LRG VHS treatment in its collector’s edition! With a clamshell outer case, VHS box, and extra prizes too cool for a cereal box, it’s like Mythforce has been around since the 80s.

Pre-orders for the physical edition open today! Reserve yours now!

August 2-5-8 Milestone UpdatesLRG Production

Every month, we comb through and send out updates to titles whose pre-order periods ended two, five, or eight months before and hit your inbox with a status update. If you’ve missed our emails, here’s a big ol’ batch of milestone updates for you!

2 Months Old 

Standard Editions Currently Printing (all platforms unless specified)

  • Wytchwood
  • Sword of Elpisia
  • Black Book
  • Q.U.B.E. 10th Anniversary
  • Gimmick! Special Edition
  • Trip World DX (PS4 & PS5)

Production on these games will finish very soon, with shipping to begin as soon as they arrive and pass quality assurance checks. Make sure your address is up to date, and expect your games to ship by early Q4 2023!

Eskimo Bob & Alfonzo’s Arctic Adventure

  • Cart manufacturing is about to begin. This process takes a little longer for retro games, so we’ll be back with another update in Q4 2023 once we have a more accurate timeline for their arrival at our warehouse. For those that bought the dual pack, we’ll have everything ready by the time carts arrive, so both individual packs and dual packs should ship one right after the other.

Getsufumaden: Undying Moon

  • Standard Editions are complete and will be shipping from our warehouse soon! The included art book is the last item we’re waiting for to complete the Collector’s Edition. Production will complete for that item in Q4, and we plan to ship this Collector’s Edition soon after the book arrives in our warehouse.

Trip World DX & Retro Trip World Carts

  • Switch Standard Editions: We’re getting the proofs for the foil GDQ to confirm they’re foily enough before placing our order for the entire run. Though they’re a little behind the PlayStation copies, we still plan on shipping them early in Q4 2023!
  • DX Collector’s Editions: These are coming along great, with everything currently in manufacturing or en route to us. We’ll be conservative with our estimate and predict they will ship to customers early in Q1, but we’ll return with a new update in Q4.
  • Retro Editions: Carts have gone to manufacturing! We’ve had no issues getting these to manufacturing, but retro re-releases usually take longer than modern games. We’ll be back with a tighter ETA in next quarter’s update!

Gimmick! Special Edition Collector’s Editions

  • Our cousins over at Clear River Games are supplying some of the components for this one while we work on the others. Though production is going smoothly, this one is still pretty early in the making. We’ll have a final ETA in our next update in November!

Doodle World: Redrawn

  • Manufacturing is underway! We expect the finished units to arrive in our warehouse at the beginning of October, with shipping to commence in Q4 2023.

  • PC Version: the PC build of the game is undergoing final development. We expect this version to finish in Q4 2023 after the console versions are complete!

D: The Game

  • Components and assets are undergoing final approval from the rightsholder, and we are ready to move into production ASAP. We expect the PC and 3DO versions to finish in Q4 2023, but we’ll keep you updated if that changes.

Shin Chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation: Collector’s Edition

  • Though the Switch versions are complete and shipping, we are still awaiting the arrival of our PS4 copies. These are manufacturing and will finish soon, so expect your copy to ship this quarter (before the end of September!).
  • The last item we’re waiting on for the Collector’s Edition is the enamel pin, which is in manufacturing now! After kitting, we expect this edition to start shipping in late Q3/early Q4!

Steel Assault: Collector’s Edition

  • The only item we’re waiting on for this CE is the OST, which is being made right now! After it arrives and your final product is assembled, we expect shipping to commence on the line between Q3 and Q4 of this year!

Xtreme Sports:

  • Switch copies of Xtreme Sports will be ordered with our next batch of games from the factory. We expect them to finish and ship by the end of Q3 2023, but we’ll let you know if we experience any delays!
  • Meanwhile, Game Boy Color carts are in manufacturing now! We expect their arrival in our warehouse at the beginning of Q4, with shipping to follow soon after they arrive.

RWBY Arrowfell:

  • With Xbox copies shipping, let’s check in on the other Standard Editions. PS4, PS5, and the original Switch variant copy are in manufacturing and will arrive in our warehouse shortly. The Team BRIR variant covers are undergoing their final digital proof, and final products will finish up shortly after the rest of the Standard Editions.
