While it coincided with the Ubisoft pre-show, Limited Run Games was no slouch for their presentation. The distributor responsible for physical editions of digital exclusive games pulled out all the stops today with fifty titles in the pipeline. Naturally, these include a ton of reveals for the Nintendo Switch; however, Limited Run even introduced a surprise game for the 3DS as well. I guess Persona Q2 wasn’t the last retail release for the handheld after all!

According to their post-presentation blog post, Limited Run’s Switch-bound lineup is as follows:
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
Bad North (Q3 2019)
Blaster Master Zero (Q4)
Blazing Chrome (Q4)
Dark Devotion (Q4)
Double Switch: 25th Anniversary Edition (July)
Freedom Planet (June 21)
Night in the Woods (Q4)
Rogue Legacy (July 19)
Transistor (July 5)
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil (Q3)
Pre-orders for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid are open now on Limited Run’s website. You can pick up either a standard edition or the collector’s edition, complete with a steelbook, poster, and power coins. Additionally, today’s presentation also marks the arrival of the puzzle game realMyst on home consoles for the first time!
As for the 3DS, Limited Run is partnering with Atooi in releasing Atooi Collection for the handheld. The collection will include Chicken Wiggle, Bomb Monkey, Mutant Mudds Deluxe, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, and Xeodrifter all in one cartridge.
Sadly, Limited Run has not shared a release window for the indie game collection. Hopefully this means we’ll hear more about it soon, and Limited has a lot more in store for the 3DS! That said, 3DS cartridges have one key difference from Switch cartridges that might be the cause for the lack of a launch period. I wonder how Limited Run will get around that region lock…
