Limited Run Games LRG3

The first showcase we’ll be covering for this Not-E3 season is from Limited Run Games. Of course, since LRG publishes physical editions of games that would otherwise be digital-only, their showcases usually focus on games that are already out or announced. Still, sometimes there are surprises. Let’s take a look.

To start with, their show was framed as an action story about agents fighting terrorist aliens… or something like that… while finding game trailers all over the place. I didn’t enjoy it, so let’s just talk about the games.

They announced physical editions for River City Girls 2, Undermine, Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition, PowerSlave: Exhumed, Spidersaurs, Lunark, the Shadowrun Trilogy, and then a pair of games that caught my attention for how unexpected the announcement was, Go! Go! Kokopolo – Harmonious Forest Revenge and its sequel Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D – Space Recipe for Disaster.

The 3DS era might be coming to an end, but these two are coming out physically for the 3DS, both separately and as a dual pack.

From there they announced Skelattack, Doom 64 for Xbox, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Retro Collection, Rendering Ranger: R2, and the original Shantae for PS4 and PS5, while also unveiling a Shantae figure for the 20th anniversary.

Next up was A Boy and his Blob: Retro Collection, Konami Arcade Classics, and Knights of the Old Republic II (which is getting the cut content added as DLC). They also showed Garden Story, which I played a demo for a while back and found interesting.

DoDonPachi Resurrection, Plumbers Don’t War Ties: Definitive Edition, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, and Blossom Tales II followed. I haven’t played Blossom Tales, but I remember it looking interesting, and the sequel is due out on August 16 with the physical edition coming later.

Then came announcements for Enclave, American Hero, Prize Fighter: Heavyweight Edition, BATS: Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad, Night Trap, and one I recognized – D, a horror game we discussed a couple years ago. It’s not coming to modern consoles, though, but getting a physical release for the PC and 3DO.

After ESPGaluda II, they announced Glover… for the Nintendo 64. Yes, a physical Nintendo 64 game is coming out.

The next announcement was Tetris Effect: Connected, followed by an upcoming 3D platformer called Frogun, which looks like it could be fun.

Deathwish Enforcers came next, and the final game of the show was Doom Eternal for the Switch.

Not a whole lot of games I’m interested in, but there were a few interesting announcements in there. What did you think of this year’s Limited Run Games show?

  1. Oh man, I remember playing Glover on my N64 back in the day… that’s a nostalgia trip. Shame it’s not on a more modern machine or I might have gone for it just for the nostalgia, but alas, I do not have my N64 anymore…
