Nintendo Switch

Limited Run Has Decided To Put Its “Switch Stuff” On Hold

This summer was supposed to see the first Nintendo Switch release by Limited Run, but it seems that this will no longer be the case. Limited Run co-owner Douglas Bogart recently explained why that they came to this decision in an interview with GameCuddle. Nintendo is still playing catch-up due to the massive success that they are having, and Bogart feels Nintendo “don’t really have time for us”. However, Bogart says that the company is “on friendly terms with Nintendo and the book is still open”. Here’s what Bogart had to say:

“So, we told everyone on Twitter that the Switch stuff is on hold at the moment because Nintendo is still playing catch-up, because a lot of people that were doing games such as ‘Binding of Isaac’ didn’t anticipate having to keep reprinting it. They are selling way more than they ever thought. Nintendo is still catching up on those. They don’t really have time for us if we wanted to do a smaller run.”

      1. I realize his question was too advanced for the average person, so I’ll help by asking you in a different way:

        What games have they made, or what have they done to be recognized in the gaming industry… because that wasn’t mentioned.

      1. Maybe he’s on a limited device? My smartphone is hardly able to let me visit this site so I don’t really use it to go here and post (loading times suck).

        Best check yourself before going off on someone for irrelevant matters.

      2. Wow, yet you could have named one game, and instead decided to write an essay on why they shouldn’t have asked the question.
        I smell hypocracy.

      3. I was at work and I tend to forget things. Noticed how I just replied now, what was it? A day after? You couldve easily ignored it but thank you for not giving me any information and wasting your own time because CLEARLY you needed to say that.

    1. Limited Run Games, LLC is an American video game video game distributor based in Raleigh, North Carolina and a division of Mighty Rabbit Studios. The company specializes in the release of digital games in physical media, with the games being sold on their website. The company, founded by Douglas Bogart and Josh Fairhurst, was based on the preservation of video games, as well as catering to players who prefer physical discs and cartridges opposed to game downloads.[3] Limited Run Games releases games exclusively on their website, and deliberately creates small print runs. With this, the team maintains a pledge to refuse creating reprints of past titles, even if there is high demand. The company name itself is a reference to this business model, as their games are available in a firm, limited printing for a short time.
