Red Art Games, in partnership with PID Games and Alawar Premium, has announced a physical release for the 2D platformer They Always Run.

In Europe, Red Art Games will be handling everything itself. The game will have 4,000 standard units and 500 copies of the collector’s edition. Every order will come with a free acrylic stand. As for the collector’s edition, it includes a copy of the game, a custom box, an art book, and a soundtrack CD. Pre-orders begin on Thursday, May 19 at 5 PM CEST on the official Red Art Games online store.

Original (5/15): This week’s UK software sales are in, with Nintendo Switch Sports again topping the chart for a third week in a row.

The title actually saw a 54 percent dip week-on-week. However, due to the lack of major releases as of late, it’s been able to stay #1. It’s thought that Nintendo Switch Sports could remain in the top five for the foreseeable future.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is also still selling as it’s in the second spot. The game has stayed in the top two for six weeks.
