Yes you can. The limited part is the pre-order period is the only time you can get it. Miss that window and you miss it forever.

Have you (or anyone else reading this who'd care to comment) bought from them before and/or can confirm the 14 day open pre-order window is definitely how they do things now?
Because I read the FAQ and the "Buying Guide" (https://limitedrungames.com/pages/buying-guide) on their website and that made it sound like they create the limited number of games first and then release them for sale at two set times on one specific day and that's the only chance you get. I'm wondering if that was their old method of selling (or if I just interpreted it wrong) and so just wanted to confirm that they do indeed do open pre-orders now.

I found this by Limited Run Games on Twitter saying that all Switch games are sold as open pre-orders, so we should all be right to get physical Switch copies of Yooka-Laylee if we want, assuming they keep up this method of sale. :)

There will be a limited edition Yooka-Laylee Switch bundle according to Limited Run Games on Twitter.

https://mobile.twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/status/1016339392091344896

Good news I guess, but not great for people in different time zones, or with slow internet (like the whole of Australia...).

The Only thing I hate about this is the fact people were asking for a Physical release & playtonic were like we will see if the Demand is there & how well the Digital release goes. That is why I was holding off buying the Digital version & plus I have in physical form on Xbox One & PS4. Now Playtonic know that the demand is there for a Physical release they cant be bothered to do it themselves & release it just like they did for the Xbox One & PS4 my opinion if they are not going to release it like they did with Xbox One & PS4 don't bother releasing it in physical form at all as now I have to import a physical copy from the U.S. to the U.K. which means I have to try & make sure & hopefully someone is in to accept it just in case there is a surplus charge. Yet if they released it normally people could just go to the shop & pick it up.

I don't get why they're doing it that way either. Even indie games like Binding of Isaac got a physical copy for retailers (but that's probably because its success-wise a bigger game than Yooka).

Yeah I saw that yesterday too. Bit disappointing, but fingers crossed it means the DLC will be finished and included on the Switch cart.

Now that would be awesome, but I won't bet on it.

The Yooka-Laylee page is up on LRG's website now. Man, seeing that picture just feels so perfect, like this was Yooka-Laylee's destiny from the beginning.

Oh yay, thanks for the link! :D

The release date has changed to Friday the 7th of September.

I had a feeling it would be delayed, because we hadn't got any email from Limited Run Games yet announcing the game was going on sale in 12 hours.

I also hope the delay is due to my theory (wishful thinking?) that the DLC will be included on the Switch cart.

EDIT:
The delay has to do with the details of the Collector's Edition, and apparently we'll have more details on Tuesday.

Details of the Limited Run Games Collector's Edition can be seen here:

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2033176840075983&id=962233300503681&ref=content_filter

Here is a summary for anyone who doesn't want to follow the link:

•It will cost $74.99 US dollars.
•Contains a standard Switch version of the game, a character poster, a CD soundtrack, and a non-functioning N64 cartridge collectible in a N64 styled box with manual (so it's similar to the "64-Bit Edition" tier reward from the Kickstarter campaign).
•Limited to 3000 copies.
•Backers of the Kickstarter campaign will receive a 10% off discount code towards the standard edition of the game that will work on the release day of Friday the 7th September only.
•Backers of the "64-Bit Edition" tier of the Kickstarter campaign will be granted guaranteed early access to the collector's edition (as Limited Run Games collector editions are well known for selling out in seconds) as well as a substantial discount on the collector's edition (it doesn't say how much).
