Re: Physical Nintendo Switch release by Limited Run Games!

Yeah, these physical Switch copies will certainly not spread as well when they're not getting produced for normal retailers as well. GameStop, Amazon, you name it.

It can only be connected to some complications since Switch game cards are a different and more rarely produced medium (compared to Sony's & Microsofts Blu Ray discs, that is). I hope Playtonic will be able or willing to produce real game cards for the Switch for their future games, if they're serious about their target group.

I hope that they finally deliver. This is slightly off-topic now, but compared to my initial hype, they didn't really fulfil my expectations. I love them as developers for their previous work, but they need to get to a higher polish level. Maybe get an alliance with a bigger studio, I don't now. Just combine their style with great game design again.

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.

Sep 3rd cannot come soon enough! Can't wait for this. I'm finally going to have a reason to get back on the Switch again.

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).

Wow, this looks awesome!

But limited to 3000 copies and early access for 64-bit backers...? Oh well, this makes me nervous! I really really want that edition but at this rate I'm wondering if waiting for the countdown to end and clicking the "buy" button asap is even enough to get one. I'm not even at home on Friday, so I'll have slower internet.

If there's a 64-bit backer here that is not interested in purchasing the CE, I'd be very happy for your early acess link/code/however they are going to handle that. :)

My assumption was wrong - I just was checking out the Limited Run Games Twitter feed, and saw that the discount code for all backers (except original 64-Bit Edition backers) will ONLY be for the standard edition. (I will go edit my original post so it's correct). The discount will be 10% off. Here are the Twitter links if anyone wants to read for themselves:

It says that the normal non backer price is $249.99. Is that correct?!

No, the normal price for the non-collectors edition without backer discount is $49.99. The Collectors edition (which they now seem to be calling the Classic Edition) is priced at $74.99. I'm not seeing anything set at $249.99, but there is a $219.99 September 7th Mega-Bundle, if that's what you're referring to?

Speaking of backer discount, has anyone gotten theirs yet? I assume it's some kind of coupon code? Is it supposed to be sent as an email or appear in backertkit or something?

Got my code. Gave me the link to the game.

Took a screen shot but no idea how to show it.
