Limited Run Games is Releasing New Star Wars NES and Game Boy Cartridges and They Look Brilliant

Those old Star Wars games can be yours if you're that attached to them.

Limited Run Games is great at bringing indie titles and classic games to the public in physical form. The company previously announced that it'd be working with Lucasfilm games on releases, but there were no details on the matter. Today we finally have some idea what these physical releases will be.

Limited Run Games has announced today that it will be releasing Star Wars for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy in proper cartridge form. Folks will be able pre-order either version this Friday, June 28. There's also Star Wars: Bounty Hunter for PlayStation 4, but it doesn't look to be a part of these releases.

These titles are listed in the announcement as "release #1 and #2 of 6". That means it's likely that Limited Run Games will continue with other Star Wars titles. The remaining four could possibly be Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back for NES, and the three SNES titles: Super Star Wars, Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Or perhaps maybe Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for Nintendo 64 is one of those planned releases. We don't know yet.

Limited Run Games has been fantastic with its releases and re-releases. Previous releases have included Firewatch, jotun, Windjammers, Yooka-Laylee, Ys Origin, Wonder Boy, and Night Trap.
