I wonder if the physical Switch version will have the upcoming DLC included on the cart?

I actually was waiting for this to happen (and it was the main reason I was watching Limited Run Games' E3 presentation yesterday). As a day 1 Kickstarter backer I own the physical PC version (which I beat in April 2017) and also received a digital download code for the Switch version. But I gave it away to a friend since I wasn't interested in having it digital-only. I'm happy to pre-order this asap and finally play this again - but this time on a Nintendo console where it belongs and including the many updates that were released since my last playthrough. :)

Here's the original announcement which was broadcasted yesterday on Twitch:

(Since everyone is using my thread which was actually 2 minutes late, maybe someone could merge both threads?)

Maybe they'll release some kind of physical "Ultimate Edition" a few years down the line when all patches and DLC have been finished? (WayForward did that for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero)
I wouldn't expect any differences for the "Limited Run" version, though.

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.

It's been over 2 months since they said soon. Im beginning to feel a very strong disliking (i won't say hate yet) towards playtonics use of the word soon. It's pretty much a lie.

Their wording in the latest update definitely suggested that there’s “several news”, didn’t it? So this can’t be it if they’re serious about it...

They just announced on Twitter that the Japanese version of the game is releasing in the eShop today, so that's at least two brief bits of news recently.

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.

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.
