Between attempting to revive the cremated corpse of E3 and the whole Plumbers Don't Wear Ties thing they're on the tip of the iceberg.

The annual capper to the Summer of Too Many Bloody Game Announcements is usually the Limited Run Games presentation, and after a very rough year since the publisher/distributor's last presentation they unveiled the following for Switch this year (alongside the previously announced Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary):

Brand New Games

  • A "Re-Pop" version of Lollipop Chainsaw - the 2012 Suda 51 action title - will release this summer, and include an option to tone down its over-the-top violence.
  • Announced last year, a remastered version of PlayStation-exclusive platformer Tomba will be available August 1, and Tomba 2 was shown for the first time.
  • Side scrolling platformer Double Shake, a Mischief Makers-inspired game, will be available "soon".

  • Sidescrolling platformer Renaine will be published by Limited Run in fall 2024.

There is something rather appropriate about LRG of all companies doing a Bubsy Collection. After all, "What Could Possibly Go Wrong?"

Interested in Lollipop Chainsaw, but I'm not buying what's already a gimped release (it won't have the licensed music) sight unseen. Never played the Tomba games. I don't like the art of this Clock Tower remake. Beyond Good & Evil is a game I like more in theory than I actually do in practice. I played a LOT Of Gex 2 back on the N64, so I am...kinda...interested in that collection, depending on what versions they're using.
There was a Signature here. It's gone now.
