Limited Run Games and WayForward are teaming up, and it is going to be wonderful. In other words, get ready for WayForward Day! Announced on January 10th, the two companies are working together to bring us some sweet physical goodness. Preorders for physical versions of Vitamin Connection, Mighty Switch Force! Collection, and Mystik Belle begin on January 17th. Here is what you need to know.
Independent game studio WayForward is proud to announce that January 17 will be WayForward Day! At limitedrungames.com, you will be able to purchase three WayForward games in their glorious physical form. This will even include the all-new Switch exclusive, Vitamin Connection. Whether you are seeking the puzzle-platforming fun of Mighty Switch Force! Collection, the spooky adventuring of Mystik Belle, the unique shooting action of Vitamin Connection, or all of the above, you’ll be in for hours of enjoyment when these physical editions are made available exclusively via Limited Run Games.
A game featuring innovative Joy-Con controls, HD Rumble, and other features developed exclusively with the Nintendo Switch in mind. Vitamin Connection lets one or two players take control of Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl. You use the microscopic Capsule Ship to fend off a putrid pathogenic invasion. As you eliminate foes with your Vitamin Beam, navigate maze-like environments, interact with quirky allies, and overcome a variety of challenging sub-games, you will save the Sable family — and maybe even the world! — from numerous wacky situations.
You can check out the Official Trailer below.
In addition to a standard edition priced at $34.99, a limited edition (which includes 3-inch plushies of Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl, 12 character profile cards, a CD soundtrack, and a reversible poster) will be available for $64.99. The digital version will be available through the Nintendo Switch eShop. It will start on February 20, 2020 and the price will be $19.99.
Mighty Switch Force! Collection
Mighty Switch Force! Collection contains four complete games. There are more than 70 levels of action, platforming, and level-rearranging puzzles starring the galaxy’s most resilient cybernetic peacekeeper. As Officer Patricia Wagon, players will capture criminals, fight fires, rescue babies, and even engage in co-op and competitive multiplayer shenanigans.
Available on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, Mighty Switch Force! Collection will be offered in both a standard edition for $34.99 and a collector’s edition for $59.99. The game is also currently available digitally on Switch and PS4, as well as Xbox One and PC.
Last but not least, Mystik Belle puts players into the robe and hat of Belle MacFae. She is a young witch-in-training at the Hagmore School of Witchcraft. To prevent your expulsion and restore the crucial Walpurgisnacht brew, you must explore the expansive school grounds, defeat numerous enemies with your fire magic, and discover and use a variety of items to solve classic-adventure-style puzzles.
Available on PS4 as a standard edition only, the physical version of Mystik Belle will be priced at $24.99. Digital editions are currently available on PS4 and Xbox One.
But wait! There’s more!
Firstly, a Mighty Switch Force! Collection vinyl LP soundtrack ($44.99) will be up for sale. Secondly, two Nintendo Switch carrying cases themed after Vitamin Connection and River City Girls ($14.99 each) will be available from Limited Run Games as well.
All products will be available for purchase on limitedrungames.com starting on Jan. 17 at 10:00am Eastern/7:00am Pacific; standard-edition preorders will remain open for two weeks.
