Bless Limited Run Games. They take our favorite games and series, and they create amazing collector’s items for them. The most recent Collector’s Editions announced from them are two of the classic Shantae titles; the first Shantae game and Risky’s Revenge. A couple of months ago, WayForward announced that the original Shantae game would be re-released as a playable GameBoy Color cartridge as well as a Nintendo Switch port. Now, we have a look at what comes with those releases. Though WayForward said that the first game would be on Nintendo Switch, we have no word of that port yet. Instead, we are hearing about the second game’s Nintendo Switch port.
Firstly, the original Shantae game is getting a GameBoy Color re-issue. The cartridge and box can be bought standalone, but the Collector’s Edition is much more interesting. It comes with a reversible 18″ x 24″ poster of the game art and world map, the original soundtrack on disc, an enamel pin, a commemorative coin, two acrylic standees, and a display stand for the cartridge. Risky’s Revenge can also be bought on Nintendo Switch as a standalone game, but once again, the Collector’s Edition is just juicier. This Collector’s Edition comes mostly with the same things; a reversible 18″ x 24″ poster of the game art and bikini-clad Shantae, the original soundtrack on disc, an enamel pin, a commemorative coin, one acrylic standee, and a steelbook case for the game.
The Collector’s Editions for the GameBoy Color and Nintendo Switch games cost $74.99 and $64.99 respectively. These pre-orders will go active next week on September 11th and will be open until October 9th.
