There have been plenty of "code in box" Switch releases over the last year or so, especially in Europe. These releases usually come about after the first wave of a physical release sells out. Rather than cough up the cash for another game card batch to be printed, devs and pubs turn to the cheaper "code in box" alternative.
It now appears that publisher Just For Games might be handling another wave of these "code in box" releases. According to French retailer Culture.Leclerc, the publisher has picked up a number of games for release. These games don't specifically say that they're "code in box" releases, but these are all titles that previously released physically under a different publisher. Seeing a new publisher swoop in for a "code in box" release is definitely the most likely explanation.
The games Just For Games has slated for release later this month include the following.
- Spintire Mudrunner American Wilds
- Hollow Knight
- Kill LA Kill If
- Among The Sleep Enhanced Edition
There's certainly a chance these listings could be mistakes, but outside of that, it does seem like these will be "code in box" launches.
