Limited Run Games, a company that specializes in producing limited-edition physical versions of both beloved classics and obscure "hidden gems," has made some exciting announcements that have certainly gotten fans on Twitter talking! Several popular titles have been announced for this fall, bringing classic games to modern consoles such as the Nintendo Switch.
Star Wars Episode 1 Racer, the high-speed pod-racing game based on the popular sci-fi film franchise, will be available to pre-order for four weeks beginning on Friday, July 10. It is receiving a physical release for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. An exclusive Collector's Edition will also feature retrospective essays discussing the game, posters and art cards, a stunning steelbook, and even a racer coin. This is expected to sell out quickly, so grab one while supplies last!

Join cheerful half-genie Shantae as she protects Sequin Land from the nefarious pirate Risky Boots. Shantae will also receive a physical release for the Nintendo Switch.
