I guess we'll know more during the Limited Run showcase that airs on June 6th (they've been teasing the release date will finally be revealed), but what I want to know is if this physical release will come out on the same day it drops on the digital stores.

Or is this going to be something where the game comes out either in June or August, but the physical games are in production and not available until like the fall ... and that's just even the standard release. With Limited Run Games, you'll pre order the collector's edition in June and maybe, hopefully see it around the same time next year.

I'm sure the details and release date will be confirmed on June 6, but as I understood the LimitedRun's post, the physical game will be sold in retail stores, which has been a precedent in some of their other releases. I ASSUME, the physical releases (standard edition) will coincide with launch day, but I guess we will have to wait to find out.

EDIT:
Here is the comment:

Also, more confirmation that the LimitedRun Collector's Edition will be different than the international "Signature Edition":
https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/...98942038245377
It will be exclusive to the LimitedRun website and it will come out after the standard release:

Hoping that's the case! Personally would rather have this game on physical without having to double dip with digital first from the FOMO until the physical game comes in.

That said, what have people down in that situation where they pre order a physical copy down the road of a game they can buy digitally? Just not open their new physical copy or never play it?

With the Switch I know you have to be really mindful of in GB for storage when it comes to physical vs. digital, even for a game like this.

Since I've had a Switch, I have bough a couple games digitally (on BIG sale) that I already owned physically, but I have yet to buy any physical copies of games I already owned digitally. And I only mean the same "versions" like a specific console; "Retro Collecting" is a different category in my mind. However, one advantage of double-dipping is that you can always delete the digital version from you system for spatial management and still pop in the physical copy for no-waiting gameplay. I'm guessing games with DLC bundles should allow you to keep the DLC portions while saving some space without having the original game, but I haven't tried that with some of mine yet.

Fortunately, one of the TributeGames dev members confirmed Shredder's Revenge to be around 1GB in size, strategically optimized from around 4-5 GB:

Very convenient for Switch owners without any microSD card expansions.

Dotemu confirmed in their original tweet about physical versions that they'd be coming "post launch." However, LRG also confirmed that their version would ship at the same time as the international physical versions, so I'm guessing that means not quite as long a wait as usual.

Interesting ... I wonder if the "radical physical edition" is in reference to the collector's editions but the standard ones will release when it comes out digitally.

That's a fair price.

Weird, I'm seeing it listed as $24.99.

Very much looking forward to the inevitable digital sale price a year down the road, since I intend to buy physical early.

So let me get this straight the classic collection is $40 but the new game is only $30? I know it's 13 games versus 1 but usually new games would be more than a collection.

Licensing costs plus Konami being more greedy than DotEmu?

Six players, eh? Interesting, indeed. Sounds like a crap-fest, but hard to say without trying the game. I know they are focused even more on the "crowd control" aspect though, so maybe it could work. If nothing else, it's probably the best mode for a drunken laugh with friends.

Looks like the Switch page got updated to note only 4-players as expected.

Interestingly, it also removed the promise of online multiplayer.

What? I wouldn't even buy it, then. When am I ever going to have a bunch of people physically over who want to sit down and play a 16 bit TMNT side-scrolling beat'em up? Maybe in 1995 I could find people.

I expect online play will be a feature eventually (heck, even Nick All-Star Brawl has it on Switch), but I was just pointing out that it was listed as a feature yesterday and it's not listed today. They had to correct the typo about 6-player play, but they also removed that other bit for whatever reason.

Yikes. That was bad.

No real news outside of little information about the collector's edition that I couldn't tell if it was a joke or not given that it's Limited Run Games and they like to be silly / troll.

Free pan pizza? Shredder action figure?

Also, they purposely bleeped out the release date and even now I'm at the point where this is becoming obnoxious. Dotemu must be saving the release date for something they know more eyes are going to be on with Thursday ... no wonder Limited Run Games deleted that tweet about a release date last week.

That said, Limited Run Games did add a placeholder for the game on each system .... so yay?
