(NEW PRE-ORDER) Cursed Castilla Collector's Edition (49.95€) Abylight
This is for the PEGI physical release. They have confirmed that an ESRB physical release will be made available through Limited Run Games at a future date. I believe this will be a distributed title through LRG and not part of their numbered run.
The Collector's Edition includes:
Game w/ Reversible Cover
Arcade Cut-Out with Lenticular 3D Screen
36-Pages Making-Of Book
(NEW RELEASE) Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice ($44.99) Playasia - Save 5% with code "SWITCHMANIA"
Please note that there has been no mention of an ESRB physical release. Like with the first game, it was only a PEGI physical release.
(NEW RELEASE) Snowrunner ($39.99) Amazon

This is a distributed title through Limited Run Games and limited to 5,000 copies.

Sales go up at 1 PM ET. The SteelBook Bundle includes:
(NEW RELEASE) Manifold Garden
This is the JPN physical release. Although the Nintendo JPN eShop page says it supports English, I'm unsure if it'll be removed for the physical release. With that said, iam8bit is releasing this physically in the West and you can pre-order here.
Please note that the Amazon Japan page says that first printings include a music CD and special masking tape. I'm unsure if Playasia will also include these items.

Please note that due to the constantly changing availability and releases, I have decided to just provide links to the limited/indie publishers' sites. I encourage you all to visit their sites, see what they have, and support their continued efforts to help bring digital only games physically!
