Digital Digest | March 2023
In like a lion. Out like an even bigger, cooler lion.
Spring is in swing, and we’re ending the first quarter of 2023 on a high note! We’ve announced some amazing games like LUNARK and Akka Arrh, let you know about some big changes we’re making to make your games go out faster, and finished production on some of your most anticipated games.
Let’s run it down and say goodbye to March with…
ICYMI—Improvements to LRG’s fulfillment process and package support improvements!
This month, we put out a large blog detailing some of the tangible ways we’re going to make producing and shipping Limited Run games faster for you. This includes better warehouse equipment, closer work with our developers and manufacturing partners, and opening our European distribution center later this year.
We’ve already begun to offer our new hard collectors cases with some of our pre-orders. LUNARK and Akka Arrh both come packed in this new premium case. They’ll look amazing on your shelf, so start collecting today!
We also wrote that we will be winding down our inclusion of free trading cards in every numbered release. This week’s pre-orders, Deathwish Enforcers and Mighty Fight Federation, will be the last numbered releases to include a free trading card with your order. However, that’s not to say that we won’t still offer standalone card packs as a merch item as we’ve done before in the past. For more details, be sure to check out the Shipping Initiatives blog.
Also, starting April 3rd, we’re committing to better package protection at no additional cost. We’ve been working behind the scenes to figure out how to offer coverage on par with Route without having the customer shoulder the cost, and we’ve come to a solution through our network of resources. All orders with Route will still be covered, but for ongoing orders starting April 3rd, every package will include premium LRG support, which guarantees that your package will be taken care of if it’s lost, damaged, or stolen. All of this will be taken care of in-house at no additional cost to you. We’ve also beefed up our support department hiring so you can get a speedy response if anything should happen.
DOOM Eternal and Shantae Updates!
What do Doomslayers and Half-Genie Heroes both have in common? (Apart from being super cool?) That’s right, they both got beefy production updates this month. Production on these franchises is rockin’ and rollin’, so check out when you’ll get your Shantae or DOOM Eternal items.
March Production Updates
Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual + Beyond Time and Space | Standard & Collector’s Editions
Components for the Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual Collector’s Edition are rolling into our warehouse and being set safely aside for assembly. Everything else is in motion, and the Standard Editions will print as soon as the final physical build is ready.
Meanwhile, Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space is getting ready to manufacture after final approvals. Although production has gone more slowly than expected on this one, we’re pouring resources into this project to wrap it up as quickly as possible.
We’ll have a more comprehensive update on last year’s Sam & Max releases in next month’s Digital Digest with a final updated ETA to share with you.
Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition | Standard & Collector’s Editions
Standard Editions of Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition are almost ready to be printed after getting some extra patches added to the physical release. Meanwhile, we’ve begun to receive some of the Collector’s Editions components, including the art cards, poster and pin. We’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this one! However, we’ll need more time to sample and build some of the bigger components, like the replica blaster.
Tetris Effect: Connected | Collector’s Editions
Everything we need to Tetris Effect: Connected is falling into place! The last thing we’re waiting on are those amazing Tetrimino boxes to arrive. Those are being delivered to us at the beginning of next month. After we put everything together, the Tetris Effect: Connected Collector’s Editions will connect with you in Q2 2023!
Here’s a look at some of the coolest things that have just arrived (like Worms: Armageddon) and will ship in the next few weeks. Keep an eye out for tracking!
TMNT Shredder’s Revenge | PS5 Classic Editions
