Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe physical

Original (10/18): A physical release for Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe is on the way to Switch, Play-Asia and H2 Interactive announced today.

Fans will be able to choose between a standard version or limited edition. Those interested in the limited edition will receive a number of extras, including a collector’s box, special soundtrack, acrylic standee, minicase keychain, art card set, and numbered certificate. Only 3,000 units will be made – there’ll be an unlimited amount available for the standard release.

Miracle Snack Shop physical

Play-Asia is readying a physical release of Miracle Snack Shop on Switch, the retailer has revealed.

Along with a standard version, there’ll be a limited edition as well. The latter, which is limited to 3,000 copies, includes a copy of the game, a 11-page color manual, original soundtrack CD, acrylic standee set (Philia and Mira), minicase keychain that holds the Switch game, art card collection (3x, includes art sketches), individually numbered certificate, and windowed collector’s box.

Record of Lodoss War physical

Playism has announced that Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth will be receiving a physical release in Japan. That’s in contrast to the rest of the world, as most regions will have a digital version only.

Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth will support English physically. Other languages include Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian.

Red Art Games has just confirmed that not only will 2D action-exploration Metroidvania game Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth be seeing a physical release in Japan, but in North America and Europe as well. From their official twitter:

Super Robot Wars 30

Super Robot Wars 30 was announced in a Japanese Nintendo Direct earlier this year. Very soon after the reveal, Bandai Namco followed up by confirming plans to release the game in Asia. It’s especially noteworthy since that region will have English support.

Play-Asia has now opened pre-orders for the Asian version of Super Robot Wars 30. You can reserve it here.

Since Switch is region free, you can play through the game without any issues. Bandai Namco hasn’t any plans to bring Super Robot Wars 30 to the west on Switch, so the Asian version will probably be your only way to play in English on the system.

Clannad Side Stories

Clannad Side Stories is coming to Switch this month. The title is confirmed to be supporting English, and will be getting a worldwide release. However, only Japan will be receiving a physical version.

Fortunately, much like the digital edition, Clannad Side Stories will also support English at retail. Fans of the game can import a boxed copy and play through the entire experience in English.

Clannad Side Stories launches for Switch on May 20. Pre-order the physical version on Play-Asia here.

After they previously launched in Japan, SD Gundam G Generation Genesis and SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays Platinum Edition are now about to debut in Asia. These releases are actually noteworthy for fans in the west. Although Bandai Namco is unlikely to offer the two titles in North America or Europe, the new Asian versions will have full English support.

Play-Asia has now opened pre-orders. You can reserve both games here.

SD Gundam G Generation Genesis and SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays Platinum Edition are due out for Switch in Asia on March 25.

Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack

Koei Tecmo and Gust announced Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack earlier this week. Although it’ll be released in the west, similar to past titles, it’ll be digital only.

Fortunately, Asia is coming through with an English release. Better yet, it’s been confirmed that the retail version there will fully support English.

Play-Asia has already opened pre-orders here. Look for the trilogy of Atelier titles to land on Switch in April.

Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space is coming to Switch this week. Check out some gameplay footage with the video below.

Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space arrives on Switch on January 28.

Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space

Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space is heading to Switch later this month. It’ll contain two games: Citizens of Earth and Citizens of Space.

Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space is planned for a worldwide release, but in the west, it’ll be digital-only. That’s in contrast to Japan and Asia, which is also getting a physical version. The good news is that English is supported and those that are interested in owning a boxed copy can import. Play-Asia is taking pre-orders here.

Kemco and Eden Industries will be bringing Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space to Switch on January 28, 2021.
