As reported previously, publisher Limited Run Games will be opening pre-orders for multiple Shantae games and other extras later today (11 September 2020, 7am PT/10am ET). Well, here’s a quick rundown of everything that will be up for grabs!
(Note: Almost everything here will be an open pre-order for 4 weeks, which means they will be produced based on demand. The only item with limited quantity is the Shantae vinyl soundtrack.)
The main stars this time are physical releases of the original Shantae and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge for Nintendo Switch – with both games getting Collector’s Edition bundles that have extras like a Steelbook case. The standard editions will cost $29.99 USD each, while the Collector’s Editions will cost $64.99 USD each (click below to find the pre-order pages):
Additionally, the original Shantae for Game Boy Color will also be getting an official reprint for the first time in years. The standard edition release will cost $44.99 USD, while a Collector’s Edition will be available for $74.99 USD:
That’s not all, however. Limited Run Games will also be collaborating with XSEED to distribute reprints of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition for Nintendo Switch. If you missed out on this release previously, you will be able to grab it for $29.99 USD:
Other Shantae related collectibles will also be up for pre-order. First off, you’ll be able to get standalone Steelbook Cases for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero for $14.99 USD each:
Finally, collectors who will have all five Shantae games on Switch can grab an exclusive slipcover that holds all 5 standard edition releases in one neat package. This will be available for $9.99 USD:
If you can’t be fussed to get all of these individually, you’ll also have the option of grabbing a Mega Bundle with almost everything for a whopping $389.99 USD! This will be an open pre-order until September 13. However, do note that this Mega Bundle contains both Standard and Collector’s Editions of all the games – so you’ll end up with multiple copies of the same title:
