Week of June 13th, 2021 Nintendo Switch Physical Releases & Limited Pre-Orders

Updated: Jun 17

PREMIUM EDITION GAMES WEEK & A BIG THANK YOU!

This is quite possibly the biggest week for Premium Edition Games since August 11th, 2020 when we first launched! On Tuesday, June 15th, we will be opening up pre-orders for our second series of titles, including: A Robot Named Fight! & Demon's Tier+. All the information is under the Tuesday, June 15th section, but I just wanted to take a moment to personally thank the community for all your support! Whether you're going to be adding these games to your collection or just sharing the information on social media, THANK YOU!


I also wanted to give a special shout-out to COWCAT Games & Diabolical Mind for allowing us the opportunity to bring Demon's Tier+ physically to the Switch! A thank you to Matt Bitner and Hitcents for letting us take their A Robot Named Fight! release and do the same!


Thank you to Retro Fighters for partnering with us on bringing an exclusive Premium and Retro Edition of A Robot Named Fight! to their website!


A HUGE thanks to Jeff, Barry, Frank, Erica, Dan and Steve on the Premium Edition team for their selfless and amazing work and dedication! In addition, to our significant others who gave us the support to pursue this dream! This could not be possible without the passion that every single team member, and their loved ones, share for wanting to put out quality releases!


Finally, a personal shout-out to my wife and best friend, Shanna, who believed in this dream of mine when it was nothing more than just an idea. My personal channel and involvement with the company would not be possible without her love and belief in me and I'm eternally grateful!
