First Press Games reveal their first games (A Hole New World, Shadow Bug, Castle of Heart)

There’s already quite a few companies offering limited physical releases of otherwise digital-only games, such as Limited Run Games, Red Art Games, Strictly Limited Games, and a few others. And it looks like there’s now a new player in town: First Press Games!

Yesterday, they reveal their first set of games:

  • A Hole New World (by Madgear), releasing in August
  • Shadow Bug (by Muro Studios), releasing in September
  • Castle of Heart (by 7levels), releasing in October

Each of their games (not just those listed above) will get two editions (like pretty much all other limited run companies):

  • Regular Edition (3 000 units available)
    • Nintendo Switch Cartridge
    • dedicated in-depth manual
    • standard case with double-sided print
    • slip case with leather-feel surface and golden embossing (exclusive for RE)
    • a silver-colored collector’s coin (exclusive for RE)
  • Collector’s Edition (1 000 units available)
    • Nintendo Switch Cartridge
    • dedicated in-depth manual
    • standard case with double-sided print
    • large collector’s box with soft-touch surface and shiny print
    • soundtrack in Japanese OST-release quality
    • an A3 sized poster
    • an additional piece of merchandise, depending on each game
    • a golden-colored collector’s coin

The first 3 releases listed above are getting a special offer: a Triple Preorder that allows you to pre-order all 3 games at once with a discount and some benefits:

  • reduced pricing
  • a bronze collector’s coin for each game, exclusive for these sets
  • secured preorder of all three releases
  • one-time shipping

However, there’s a catch: each set is limited to 500 units (one set per customer). They will also be available in three batches:

  • 15th of June 2019 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM BST / 7 PM CEST / 16th of June 2019 2AM JST (for Europe/Westasia): 200 pieces
  • 17th of June 2019 3PM PT / 6PM ET / 11PM BST / 18th of June 2019 12AM CEST / 7AM JST (for America): 200 pieces
  • 21st of June 2019 3AM PT / 6AM ET / 11AM BST / 12PM CEST / 7PM JST (for Eastasia/Australia): 100 pieces

NB: the batches are not limited to any region, but are simply “optimised” for the region listed above (to give everyone a fair chance of securing an order).
