Devil Engine: Complete Edition Switch physical release happening in the west
Limited Run Games is working on a physical release of Devil Engine: Complete Edition for Switch, the company announced today.
You may remember that Devil Engine technically already launched on Switch in 2019. However, it then reshipped as a new “Complete Edition” last month. A physical edition also came to Japan, though this is the first time it’ll have a boxed copy elsewhere.
Below is an overview of Devil Engine: Complete Edition:
This bundle includes both Devil Engine and its DLC, Ignition. This game is a high octane, classic styled side scrolling shoot-em-up heavily influenced by the best in the genre from the 32-bit era, featuring a variety of incredible locations, hand drawn pixel art, and a blood-pumping soundtrack that brings the dark future to life.
