Tuesday, March 12th

1. The Caligula Effect: Overdose

  • Regular Edition ($49.99) - Amazon link here

  • NISA Online Exclusive Limited Edition ($64.99) - Link here

  • Playasia (Asia Version) Limited Edition ($94.99) - Link here

The NIS America store has approximately 5% inventory left for the LE. If you're thinking of getting it, don't miss out. Included in this edition are the following:

  • The Caligula Effect: Overdose for Nintendo Switch

  • Official Soundtrack

  • Official Hardcover Art Book

  • "Beautiful Lies" Tear-Resistant Poster

  • Collector's Box

The Playasia (Asia Version) Limited Edition will include the following:

  • Switch Game: Caligula Overdose

  • Official Soundtrack (13 Tracks)

  • Official Artbook

  • Steelcase

  • M Block

  • Limited Edition Special Box

2. LEGO Movie 2 Video Game

  • Best Buy ($39.99) - Link here

  • Amazon UK Exclusive Version w/ figurine set (~$45.55) - Link here

Although this released last week at GameStop, it's now Best Buy's turn. This title is sure releasing very sporadically across the various retailers. Oh well! Everything is awesome!


If you don't mind importing, Amazon UK will have an exclusive boxed version with the Emmett lego set bundled inside a specially designed box.


3. Paw Patrol: On a Roll ($39.88) -Amazon link here

Wait a minute! Didn't this game come out last year? Technically you are right, but it was originally a Walmart exclusive. It appears that exclusivity period has ended and now other retailers will be receiving this title. So, I'm putting it here for those that have yet to buy it. From personal experience, it is a really fun game to play with your little ones!

4. R.B.I. Baseball 19 ($29.99) - Best Buy link here

So here's another interesting release. GameStop and Target released this on 3/5. Now it's Best Buy's turn!

5. RICO ($29.99) - Amazon link here

Wednesday, March 13th @ 2:00 PM EST

6. Zombie Night Terror from Warned Collectors - Link here

Preorders open on 3/13 at 2:00 PM EST and there will be 3,000 copies available. Shipping date TBD.

Thursday, March 14th

7. BLADE ARCUS Rebellion from Shining

Please note that this game DOES NOT support English, but I am including it because it's primarily a fighting game. Aside from the dialogue scenes in Japanese, it should be quite easy to navigate and figured it couldn't hurt to include.

  • Amazon Premium Fan Box Edition (~$92.20) - Link here

I am including the France one here in case you just can't wait for this title. Please note that I cannot confirm if the back case will contain English or be all in France.
