The major surprise during the Limited Run E3 2019 presentation was when the physical video game specialist announced it was partnering with Lucasfilm to re-release classic Star Wars games.
This began with the re-release of the original Star Wars game in June and now the company will be following this up with Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back for NES and Game Boy as well as Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire on Nintendo 64. You’ll be able to order both games this Friday (26th July).
In addition to standalone copies of the game, Limited Run is offering Collector’s Editions. With The Empire Strikes Back, you’ll get a retro cart pin, commemorative coin, game manual, art cards and reversible poster all in a beautiful rigid box. The type of pin you get will depend on which version of the game you purchase.
The Collector’s Edition for Shadows of the Empire features the game on a translucent purple cartridge playable on the N64, reversible poster, game manual, art cards and retro cart pin, once again packaged in a rigid box.
Limited Run also announced it has partnered with Hyperkin to provide several accessories for retro consoles. These included Limited Run branded controllers and a N64 HDMI link cable, which is also compatible with the GameCube and SNES.
