After confirming its E3 2019 press conference last month, Limited Run Games has now shared an actual date for the event. The show is set for June 10, the company confirmed today.

It’ll be taking place at the following times:

Pre-orders have opened for the physical version of Minit. You can reserve it through either Limited Run Games or Special Reserve Games.

Aside from the game, a couple of other goodies are included. These include reversible jacket artwork, a 24-page instruction booklet, and stickers.

Limited Run Games is now taking pre-orders for two new products. The physical version of Axiom Verge for Wii U is up here while Bomb Chicken is here.

Axiom Verge comes with a few extra goodies. Aside from the game, you’ll receive a double-sided poster, “The Art of Axiom Verge” art booklet, an exclusive “Making Of” documentary Blu-ray, and an original soundtrack on physical CD.

Pre-orders for the physical version of The Messenger have gone live. There are currently two options: reserving the game with either Special Reserve Games or Limited Run Games.

Special Reserve Games has The Messenger here. You can also grab it from Limited Run Games here. Both are pretty much similar, but the cover will vary depending on who you go with.

After a lengthy wait, Axiom Verge will finally be receiving its physical version on Wii U, courtesy of Limited Run Games. However, it’s not without some controversy. Limited Run Games and BadLand have been involved in a legal battle. Lawsuits are taking place.

Based on the information that has surfaced since last week, BadLand has now issued a statement of its own. We have it in full below.

The game will be available to order starting March 29 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.


Limited Run Games has opened pre-orders for the physical version of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. You can go with either a standard copy or a collector’s edition with extra goodies.
