A Summer of Games!
There’s so much cool stuff coming out this summer that it’s hard to pick a place to start, so let’s talk turtles!
TURTLE TIME IS ALMOST UP!
If you’re a Turtles fan, we’ve got more options than a pizza buffet (and we aren’t skimping on the pizza either)! Pre-orders for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge on our website close this Sunday. While you’ll still be able to find Standard Editions on Amazon and other retailers nationwide, your chance to own one of our exclusive Collector’s Editions is about to disappear!We’re also excited to reveal the final art for the Radical Edition box. This fresh and original art was done by Tim Lattie (@teamlattie on Twitter, artist on the new TMNT IDW series) and was inspired by the original work of Steve Lavigne. The key art you’ve seen before will be on a slipcover designed to protect your box from rouge ninjas, pizza stains, and sewer water (hey, we don’t judge!).
We’re incredibly excited to get the Classic, Radical, and Big Box PC Editions into your hands later this year. Remember to mention us @limitedrungames on Instagram and Twitter when you get those Standards next month. We want to see those mail calls!
CELEBRATE 20 YEARS OF THE HALF-GENIE HERO!
From the Game Boy Color to the Switch and beyond, we’re celebrating 20 years of Shantae this summer! To mark the occasion, Erin and Matt Bozon collaborated with us to release this fantastic light-up PVC statue. Made to fit your existing acrylic Shantae standees, the base lights up once they’re all inserted (and if you’re missing some, you can bundle a new set of Game Boy box standees with your order).
And don’t forget, you can complete your PS5 Shantae collection later this summer. Pre-orders for the original Shantae start on August 26th. Stay tuned for more details about this release and a Collector’s Edition reveal.
