Digital Digest - October 2023
DIGITAL DIGEST | October 2023
It’s been a retro, throwback-filled month at LRG! We’ve got old-school RPGs in spades, all-new retro rereleases of Jurassic Park, and Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties is bringing it back to 1993 all through Sunday. Let’s reminisce on the month we just had in this, our latest Digital Digest!
The Story is Over When I Say It Is!
Let's plug Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties: Remastered one more time before we flush it down the drain (until its digital release on December 8th, that is).
While at Portland Retro Gaming Expo, our Plumbers team got in front of a crowd and did a little panel about remaking this game. Jeremy Parish was there, too. You can watch the whole thing right here, right above this paragraph.
A Special Update on Shantae Statue Production!
There she is! After much careful refinement, we have a ready-to-manufacture prototype of our 20th Anniversary Shantae Statue.
We’ll let everyone know how manufacturing is going via email updates over the next several months. Until then, start planning where Shantae will live in your home!
And speaking of Shantae, we’ll have some information about Shantae Advance early next year.
Go for the Gold!
Persona 4 Golden is here. Starting today, we’ve entered a golden period where you can pre-order everything in our Persona Collection—Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, all the Collector’s Editions, AND all the merch! Make your reservations now, Persona Uberfans!
We’ve also been listening to your feedback, and we wanted to make a slight tweak to our physical edition of Persona 4 Golden. It all goes back to the Vita here at LRG, so we’ve added a reversible cover featuring the PSVIta cover art to the Standard Edition.
Playing your role!
This is a great month to be an RPG fan at LRG! We’ve got a grand total of five amazing turn-based role-playing adventures for you to pick up. Let’s tally them up:
Another Crusade - a traditional RPG set in a quaint wooden puppet world- takes cues from a certain plumber’s first RPG outing with its timing-based attacks and humor. Check out our throwback Classic Edition - exclusively for Switch - before pre-orders close next weekend!
Infinite Links - Nothing says RPG like KEMCO! Infinite Links features quintessential RPG gameplay for those who crave the grind. Check it out for its quaint pixel art and colorful characters, and expand your KEMCO collection today!
Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden - These are hit games for a reason. Representing some of the best in Atlus’ catalog, these dark coming-of-age stories speak to all of us, even if we aren’t Japanese high school students.
This Way Madness Lies - Looking for something that’s all killer, no filler? This Way Madness Lies is the latest from Zeboyd. It’s fast-paced, bite-sized, and wittier than the Bard himself. If you like magical girls, William Shakespeare, and turn-based action, this might be the game for you!
