About a year ago, Physicality Games entered the arena as one of the many companies out there offering physical versions for select Switch titles. The lineup included Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack, Slayaway Camp, Whispering Willows, and Rolling Gunner. Unfortunately, due to a lack of interest, all of these releases have been canceled.

Physicality Games wrote in a statement that “after eight months of sustained effort we failed to achieve sufficient pre-orders for any of our exclusive pre-order titles.” The company has “therefore decided to cancel our exclusive pre-order titles and will begin processing full refunds to our customers per our guarantee.” It also sounds like there are no future plans for any new exclusive pre-order titles.

The full email reads:

The Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack originally came out in Europe and Japan last year. A North American release was later confirmed, but there hasn’t been any news regarding the stateside launch in months. As of today, we finally have a proper news.

Physicality Games, in partnership with video game publishers Arc System Works and Mastiff, will be handling the North American launch exclusively. Pre-orders go live on March 23.

The Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack will be available to pre-order in a physical Deluxe Edition format, which includes a physical copy of the game, Guilty Gear-themed steelbook, 3” acrylic standee set including Baiken, Dizzy, and Bridget, and an antique gold-finished commemorative medal celebrating the series’ anniversary and Arc System Works’ 30th anniversary, all housed inside a Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack-themed Collector’s Tin with a clear display window.

Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut, an isometric puzzle game that first debuted on Switch as a digital download in March 2018, is getting a physical release. Physicality Games announced a partnership with Digerati and Mastiff to produce the physical version, which will be available to pre-order later this month.

Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut will be offered in standard and deluxe editions. With a regular copy, you’re getting a copy of the game and a collector’s tin with a clear display window that shows off the game’s cover artwork. The deluxe edition comes with those two items and adds a themed steelbook, Skullface embroidered iron-on patch, 24×36” camp flag, and Skullface audio keychain. All collector’s tins are sequentially numbered.

Here’s some information about Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut:

Physicality Games today announced a partnership with Akupara Games and Mastiff to publish a new physical release for the 2D adventure-horror video game Whispering Willows. It will be sold as both a standard release and a limited edition.

The Deluxe Edition contains a physical copy, steelbook, original soundtrack CD, 63-page artbook, 5″ light-up display stand featuring Elena’s spirit form, and collector’s tin with transparent display window.

Pre-orders open later this month. Copies will be sold straight from Physicality Games.
