Tuesday, May 31st

(NEW RELEASE) Equestrian Training ($29.99) Amazon

Please note this previously did get a PEGI physical release and is now getting an ESRB one.

(NEW PRE-ORDER) Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons ($34.99) distributed through Limited Run Games

Pre-Orders open at 12 PM EST and close on Sunday, June 12th at 11:59 PM EST. This is a distributed title and not part of their numbered run. This will be limited to 4,900 copies!

(NEW RELEASE) Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan ($19.99) GameStop

This was originally a Kickstarter and according to their recent update, only a small amount are going to retail. I've only seen it listed at GameStop so this might be limited if you didn't back it way back when. Just an FYI.

Pre-Orders open at 12 PM EST and close on Sunday, June 12th at 11:59 PM EST. This is a distributed title and not part of their numbered run.


Wednesday, June 1st

Please note that this is a PEGI fauxical release (digital code in case; no cartridge). At this time, I'm not aware of an ESRB planned physical release.

(NEW RELEASE) Animal Doctor (£19.99) Amazon UK

Please note that this is a PEGI fauxical release (digital code in case; no cartridge). At this time, I'm not aware of an ESRB planned physical release.
