Limited Run Games E3 2019 Nintendo Switch Lineup

What a Limited Run Games E3 2019 conference!

On June 10, 2019, Limited Run Games showcased in 42.49 minutes, which 50 (!) games they will bring in physical form for various platforms in the near future. As I am in particular interested in the Nintendo Switch lineup, I thought it might come handy to provide a chronological overview on all the 14 Switch games that were revealed during the E3 Showcase (watch the entire conference here) and were published afterwards in Limited Run Games E3 2019 Lineup! blog post.

Let’s have a look at which game carts we can add to our physical Nintendo Switch collection very soon – or even play on our Nintendo Switch for the very first time.

And there you have it! All 14 brand-new games that Limited Run Games revealed at E3 2019.

On my side, due to childhood memories I’m especially excited for Power Rangers (great review from Reviews 2 Go on YouTube here) and plan to buy Freedom Planet (demo available in eShop). I added both titles already to my public Nintendo Switch shopping list (my #SwitchList) and will update the page constantly as soon as LRG will put new listings on their website.

Additionally, I’m interested in pre-ordering Transistor (only heard good things about it), Double Switch and Night in the Woods. The Turok 1 +2 release will be a special addition to my physical Nintendo Switch collection, as I did play the games on my Nintendo 64 as a teenager. It will be so great to enjoy these titles on my Nintendo Switch: In HD, anytime and anywhere.

My Top 5 #Nindies Spring Showcase Titles

On March 20, 2019, Nintendo invited us to join the reveal of the biggest and most interesting upcoming #Nindie releases. There were certainly big surprises announced – in case you have not seen the presentation yet, have a look here.

Why this blog post now – roughly 3 weeks after the #Nindies Spring Showcase? 

Because I’m still hyped, and the first of my favorite games will be launched very soon. So let me quickly share with you my 5 most promising games that I cannot wait to play:

5) Cadence of Hyrule – Crypt of the Necrodancer ft. The Legend of Zelda
– Coming Spring 2019

More info on the game in the Nintendo US eShop.

 

4) The Red Lantern – Coming 2019

More info on the game in the Nintendo US eShop.

 

3) Overland – Coming Fall 2019

More info on the game in the Nintendo US eShop.

 

2) Neo Cab – Coming Summer 2019 

More info on the game in the Nintendo US eShop.

 

1) Cuphead – Coming April 18, 2019 

More info on the game in the Nintendo US eShop or even available for pre-purchase!

 

That’s it, my Top 5 list of all 17 games that Nintendo presented in their Nindies Spring Showcase.

Last but not least, I’d like to close with an honorable mentioning of a game, that was actually even on my 5th place.

Due to the impactful gesture that Nintendo allowed an indie studio to use their The Legend of Zelda IP, Link & Zelda boosted the Necrodancer into my Top 5 list. The first game in this series, Crypt of the NecroDancer: Nintendo Switch Edition, did not interest me that much, altough it is an award winning hardcore rhythm-based dungeon crawling game.

So in case there would not be any Link or Zelda in the game, my number 5 would have simply been:

5) (Honorable mention) Stranger Things 3: The Game – Coming July 4, 2019

More info on the game in the Nintendo US eShop.
