Nintendo stops Limited Run Games from doing physical Switch game printings (UPDATE)



Well that's a bit disappointing to hear, as Limited Run is doing some really awesome things when it comes to limited physical runs of games. Let's hope at some point, Nintendo reverses their decision. Thanks to Connor for the heads up!

UPDATE - Limited Run has commented further on the matter, and gives hope for the future.

Really really really unhappy to hear this. Sad

Cue the comments about limited runs of amiibo and the NES Mini, which were instances of underestimating demand and the constraints of manufacturing, respectively. I'd like Nintendo to bring these guys on board, but I get why they'd prefer larger print runs.

Hopefully just a for now situation. Probably having a hard time manufacturing the carts and are giving their carts to publishers with bigger orders.

This is great, I really don't like how Limited Run Games functions.

I love physical media but I dislike how low their quantity is and how they number all their games making it seem more like a giant collection than a chance to own your favorite game retail.

I guess that will make getting a half genie hero physical release on Switch even more complicated then :/.

I had no idea something like Limited Run Games existed and I am still not 100% sure what this is

C'mon Nintendo, stop the bullsh*t

This is really unprofessional from a business point of view. You don't say stuff the may make the other person your doing business with look bad. Still, sad that they didn't get the deal.

It's called "transparency", and some companies like to let their user base know what goes on behind the scenes. Other companies like "N" don't. They didn't say anything bad about the situation, except that nothing is happening now, due to "N" wanting to make larger runs. No secrets or disparaging remarks where made.

What LRG does could only help the NS, as it would bring advertising to the limited games they would produce, but as per the norm, "N" knows best, so good luck to them.

Well if you say it like that. I'm the kind of person that likes to keep a tight lid on this situations, but what you say makes sense.

Pretty lame. I guess Nintendo doesn't want more product on physical shelves?

I'm just seeing limited run for the first time....just how is this bad?
