Special Reserve Games

Relic Hunters Zero: Remix, Kardboard Kings physical

Special Reserve Games has largely been known for putting out physical versions of Devolver Digital titles, but it has now teamed up with Akupara Games for boxed versions of Relic Hunters Zero: Remix and Kardboard Kings on Switch.

Both will have a standard edition and “Switch Reserve” editions. All copies include the cartridge with critical updates, patches, and DLC at the time of manufacture, reversible jacket artwork, and an instruction booklet. The “Switch Reserve” edition adds sequentially numbered packaging, an art card, manga-style comic (Kardboard Kings only), and Special Reserve box.

Here’s some information about both games:

Inscryption physical

Inscryption was officially announced for Switch during the Indie World Showcase this week, and it’s now been announced that a physical release is in the cards. Special Reserve Games is handling production.

Fans will be able to choose between a standard version and a “Reserve” edition. The first one simply includes the cartridge, reversible jacket artwork, and instruction booklet. The special edition has all of these goodies plus sequentially numbered packaging, a Special Reserve art card, and comes in a Special Reserve box.

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.

cult of the lamb card shark physical

Two more Devolver Digital-published games have been confirmed for physical release on Switch – those being Cult of the Lamb and Card Shark.

Special Reserve Games tends to handle boxed versions of Devolver Digital titles, and that’ll be the case once again here. However, the company isn’t sharing a whole lot of information just yet. Both are said to be “coming soon”.

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.


The Red Strings Club

Special Reserve Games has announced plans to produce a physical version of yet another Devolver Digital-published game. The Red Strings Club, a cyberpunk narrative experience that first landed on Switch in March 2019, will soon be available in boxed form.

Pre-orders open on April 13 through Special Reserve Games’ website. Only 3,000 copies will be made.


Pikuniku, Heave Ho

Two more Devolver Digital-published Switch titles are getting the physical treatment. Pikuniku, along with Heave Ho, will soon be offered with boxed versions.

The puzzle-exploration game Pikuniku first made it to Switch in January 2019. Heave Ho, a physics-based co-op game, launched in August 2019.

Pre-orders for the physical editions of Pikuniku and Heave Ho open on November 17.


A pair of Devolver Digital Switch games have been confirmed for physical release. The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse and Crossing Souls are both getting the boxed treatment. Each package contains the Switch cartridge, sequentially numbered game packaging, reversible cover art, instruction booklet, and mystery box.

Pre-orders for both games open on September 29 through Special Reserve Games. You’ll also be able to reserve copies through Limited Run Games, which come with different boxart.


Mother Russia Bleeds boxart

Mother Russia Bleeds has been on the Switch eShop since November 2018. Now, however, a physical version will be happening.

Limited Run Games will be opening pre-orders on June 23 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET. It also looks like Special Reserve Games will be distributing copies as well. The game itself is the same, though you’ll be getting different boxart depending on who you go with. Special Reserve Games will be including unspecified collectibles.

You can see Limited Run Games’ boxart above. We have a look at the version from Special Reserve Games below.
