Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum

Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum just made it to Switch, and we have a new trailer to celebrate. The title was only just announced this month but has already released.

Everything you need to know can be found in the following overview:

Cuphead Collector's Edition

Original: A few details were shared about the Cuphead physical release last month, but we now have more information – including news about a collector’s edition.

The collector’s edition will be an iam8bit exclusive. Aside from a physical copy of the game with The Delicious Last Course on the cartridge, it comes with a handcrafted Cuphead marionette made by the Legendary Artisans at Rici Marionettes in Prague, a hand-crank music box, six “Cuphead Funnies”, an individually numbered membership card, foldout Inkwell Isles poster, a Classy O-Sleeve, interior artwork, and a premium transforming outer box featuring the Asbestos safety curtain.

Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum is coming to Switch and is launching in just a few weeks, it’s been revealed. Publisher iam8bit and developer Retrotainment are behind the new title.

Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum takes place after the events of GPK Mad Mike: Fury Load. This was a series of shorts written by Adam F. Goldberg (creator of the TV show The Goldbergs) set in a post-apocalyptic world. After saving the day, Mad Mike simply wants his favorite stale gum, but the factory run by Brainy Janie only makes fresh gum. That prompts an adventure in which Mad Mike will travel through time and space with his friends on a high-tech toilet to collect the ingredients to make it stale.

Cuphead physical boxart Delicious Last Course

Studio MDHR is continuing to slowly share details about the physical release of Cuphead on Switch, and we now know that The Delicious Last Course DLC will be included. We also have a look at the boxart above.

Cuphead was confirmed for physical release back in 2019, but Studio MDHR was waiting to wrap up The Delicious Last Course before turning its attention to the boxed version. The developer also reconfirmed to us this summer that the physical edition was still in the cards.

Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery physical

iam8bit today unveiled its latest physical edition with Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery getting the boxed treatment.

Each copy includes three art postcards, featuring a selection of artwork from the game. Also included is a reversible cover sheet designed by the dev team themselves.

A Monster's Expedition + Earlier Adventures

iam8bit has announced A Monster’s Expedition + Earlier Adventures, a new physical release containing four games. Copies should ship in Q3 2022.

A Monster’s Expedition, Sokobond, Cosmic Express, and A Good Snowman is Hard to Build will all be offered on a single  physical cartridge. On top of that, each copy will include a number of physical extras.

Eastward Collector's Edition

When Eastward landed on Switch last year, it was accompanied by a physical version – but only in Japan. Now, however, Chucklefish and Pixpil have teamed up with iam8bit and Skybound Games for new boxed editions in the west.

What we’ll be seeing first is a standard release, which is planned for May 24, 2022. All copies include an exclusive Eastward chibi-style sticker.

Grim Fandango Remastered physical

It’s been a few years since Grim Fandango Remastered first appeared on Switch, but a physical version is finally happening. iam8bit is teaming up with Double Fine on the release.

The physical version of Grim Fandango Remastered includes a premium reversible cover by Holly Rothrock, exclusive o-sleeve cover by Peter Chan, golden train ticket, and matchbook notebook from the Calavera Cafe.
