Staying Up for a Midnight Launch
Funny story on this addition (#023) to my physical Nintendo Switch collection! This was actually one of these nights where I had to constantly check the time – not because I could not sleep (which usually happens when I have to get up very early in the morning to catch a plane for instance), no – because Strictly Limited Games was about to launch the physical version of “Velocity 2X” at midnight (German time), which I did not want to miss.
So I was staying home and spotted coincidently a retweeted post within the #SwitchCorps community, saying that a PlayAsia PlayExclusive game (a physical release that is exclusively bound to Play-Asia.com), is almost sold out. Just 20 copies of the limited release of Dimension Drive are available, then all editions will be sold out – that’s what I read in PlayAsia’s tweet.
A Quick Research Was Needed
As I did not hear about Dimension Drive before, I immediately did some research of this limited print of 2000 Standard Editions. I did like the artwork at first glance and found it interesting, to own a copy of such a limited release.
Although Space Shoot’em Ups are usually not my prefered genre (for sure, Starfox is), the aspect of having two dimensions you can instantly switch into (and have to) felt very intriguing to me:
Just in Time
So I quickly went to PlayAsia to place my order for Dimension Drive – just in time, then minutes later the limited release was out of stock.
Lucky me – I almost slept on this one! I may have been in the wrong dimension to not have heard of the limited physical release of Dimension Drive earlier. Haha – Thank you, #SwitchCorps!
