Some Switch Indie Games To Get Limited Physical Releases Next Year

Some Nintendo Switch indie games may be getting a limited physical release soon. Limited Run Games, a company focusing on creating physical editions of otherwise digital-only games, announced approval to publish for the Switch today. While the company hasn’t announced what its first Switch-published game will be, it’s promising it will go to retail next year. The company says after their initial production run for each game sells out, they’ll never create more, keeping their promise of truly limited releases.

Limited Run Games has previously only published games for PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC. In a reply on Twitter, the company said they'll be unlikely to create releases for Xbox One because Microsoft's minimum order quantities are too large for such limited releases.

Last month the company had to delay its release lineup due to changes in ESRB requirements.

 

Our Take
Physical releases are great ways to give true fans of indie titles something to put in their gaming collection. I'm excited to see what Switch games Limited Run Games ends up releasing.
