A Collector’s Edition to Sink Your Teeth Into
Owners of the Castlevania Requiem Standard and Classic Editions are going to have a very happy holiday. These Editions are complete and shipping from our warehouse!
Meanwhile, the Ultimate Edition of Castlevania Requiem is moving slowly-but-surely through production. However, we would like to let you know that those Ultimate Editions are now delayed until Q1 2023.
Let’s take a moment to lift the curtain. There are many moving parts to consider when creating one of these Ultimate Collector’s Editions. We do our best to give an accurate estimate, but sometimes working with outside vendors moves more slowly than we anticipate.
With the information we have now, we’d like to share how we’ve calculated the new shipping ETA. Here’s how we got this estimate:
Our vendor has supplied us with an updated ship-to-LRG ETA of January. The final components will be on a boat before the Lunar New Year
Transit time across the sea can take anywhere from 10-45 days, depending on the speed of the courier
- Then there’s customs. This is the wild card. Items can be released in 1 day, 1 week, 1 month…you get the picture. But we’re going to be optimistic here. We’ll let you know if customs delays Requiem out of Q1
- Once the items are stateside, the components are inspected, and they go to assembly, which takes 1-2 weeks to complete
- Finally, it’s back to our warehouse, where the final product gets inspected and placed on the shipping queue
We know you’re very excited to get this one, so we’ll send a progress report email out to affected customers in February 2023, confirming that the final components are in-transit from our overseas vendor.
Until then, we’ll leave you with a sample of Alucard’s amazing sword and shield, so you can start planning where to put them.
Rapid Fire Product Updates
Things are happening fast ahead of the holidays. Here’s the latest about some of the titles you’ve been waiting for.
AMERICAN HERO - PS5 & COLLECTOR’S EDITIONS (Switch + PC)
Collector’s Edition components of American Hero are currently in manufacturing, and Standard Switch and PS4 copies are in our warehouse preparing to ship. Due to some development delays, the PS5 physical version of American Hero will be shipping later, likely in Q1 2023 alongside the Collector’s and PC Edition.
ZOMBIES ATE MY NEIGHBORS / GHOUL PATROL - Retro Carts
Production on retro carts is nearly finished and will arrive in our warehouse in the next few weeks. We still believe that these will ship by the end of Q4, but we’ll let you know when they arrive if you might expect them later.
WORMS ARMAGEDDON - Retro Carts
After a long production, these carts are now making their way over the ocean to us. While we’re hopeful that they can get here before the end of the year, we’ll let you know via email if they are further delayed.
Watch your mailboxes; these items are on their way out or hitting our shipping queue over the next few weeks. You’ll be seeing shipping notifications soon. Don’t forget to update your address if you have to!
