If you’re a fan of physical game releases, there’s no company worth paying attention to more than Limited Run Games. The publisher is cranking out physical copies of Switch and legacy platform titles left and right, and today we’ve gotten a great look at what their future lineup has to offer.

Limited Run Games has just aired LRG3 2024, and it was chock-full of Switch announcements. You can see a complete recap of all the Nintendo-related titles below, along with an official press release.

  • STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster getting a physical Switch release, pre-orders open tomorrow

  • Rain World is getting a physical Switch release, with details to be shared at a later date
  • Fighting Force Collection announced for Switch, due out 2025

It looks like a pixel platformer, but it’s so much more. Humor, clever dialogue, fighting game mechanics, and hopping over pits come together in Renaine, an independent labor of love designed to challenge you, intrigue you, tickle you, and occasionally even provoke you. You won’t believe how good Renaine can be! Coming soon to Switch.

Lots of fun stuff! Renaine looks fun. That one is definitely on my radar.

Mostly disappointed tbh. I'll get Shantae and Beyond Good & Evil IF it includes the original German dub.

For a second I thought Wolfenstein: The new order was seeing a release on switch. It's weird to see it re-releasing as it already had a physical release. The switch port is really good just like Doom and Doom Eternal, but I prefer first one over the sequel (just like doom 👀). Maybe one day I'll be able play it on the couch and in bed!
