Limited Run Will Begin Producing Collectible Physical Releases of Nintendo Switch Games in 2018

The producers of collectible physical releases will begin releasing Switch games.

Limited Run Games, a company that specializes in making limited physical copies of digital indie games, will be branching out to produce physical releases for select Nintendo Switch games in 2018. The company made the announcement this morning on Twitter.

Limited Run Games previously published limited physical releases for hit digital indie games like Firewatch and Octodad, among many others. Now it will be extending its indie offerings beyond its regular PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC runs to include Nintendo Switch cartridges. The company sticks to its name by never reprinting sold-out games, so Limited Run really does mean limited run.

No news yet on what Limited Run's first Nintendo Switch game release will be. However, the Switch already has a strong line-up of digital indie games so Limited Run has plenty to pick from.

Limited Run was previously stopped by Nintendo from producing doing physical game printings. But it was only a temporary halt agreed upon by both Nintendo and Limited Run that would last until production demands from bigger publishers leveled out.

With the news that Limited Run will be publishing Nintendo Switch games, only Xbox One games remain left out. Something Limited Run attributes to the fact that Microsoft's minimum order quantities are too large for its limited release operation.
