Serious Sam Collection physical

Special Reserve Games has revealed a Switch physical release for Serious Sam Collection.

Fans can pick up a standard copy (unlimited number of copies) or the “Reserve” Edition (limited to 3,000 copies). Both have reversible jacket artwork and a 24-page instruction booklet as extras, but the latter features sequentially numbered game packaging, a special art card, and is shipped in a Special Reserve package.

The Hand of Merlin gameplay

Gameplay has come in for The Hand of Merlin, a turn-based rogue-lite RPG. Earlier this week, it was brought to Switch by Versus Evil, Croteam, and Room-C Games.

We have more information about The Hand of Merlin below.

The Hand of Merlin

Versus Evil, Room-C Games, and Croteam have announced that The Hand of Merlin will be seeing a release on Switch. The rogue-lite RPG is slated for June 14, 2022.

The Hand of Merlin has previously been in Early Access. When it makes it to Switch, it will include all eight major updates from the PC version released thus far. New features and gameplay enhancements include meta progression, passive skills, alternate maps, varied difficulty modes, and overhauled visual VFX.

The Talos Principle

A physical version for The Talos Principle is in the works, Special Reserve Games has announced. It was previously digital-only on the eShop.

All copies include a Switch cartridge, sequentially numbered game packaging, reversible jacket artwork, instruction booklet, and digital soundtrack. It also ships in a Special Reserve box.

Pre-orders open tomorrow, June 8. You’ll be able to reserve a copy here.


Serious Sam Collection

Serious Sam Collection was announced for Switch earlier this week, and we now have a trailer showing off the full package. View it below.

Serious Sam Collection, which includes Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter and Serious Sam 3: BFE, launches on November 17. We have some additional information here.

After it was announced for Switch earlier today, The Talos Principle: Deluxe Edition saw a surprise release on the Switch eShop. Check out some footage below.

Serious Sam 4

Croteam has long been known for its work on the Serious Sam franchise, including the upcoming Serious Sam 4. The developer also has another hits on its hands with the 2014 first-person puzzler The Talos Principle. Both of these IPs could very well be finding their way to Switch in the future.

The first bit of news comes from Croteam CTO Alen Ladavac and marketing manager Daniel Lucic. In an interview with Wccftech, the two revealed that its new engine for Serious Sam is being ported to Switch. On top of that, Lucic revealed that The Talos Principle is “likely” for Nintendo’s system.
