I previously talked about Limited Run Games’ earlier Oddworld: New N’ Tasty physical release, and wasn’t at all surprised when all 5000 PS4 and 2500 PS Vita copies sold out not long after the game went on sale.
On 9 May 2016 (ie tomorrow), Limited Run Games will make available an extremely limited print run of only 2000 physical copies of Futuridium EP Deluxe for both PS4 and PS Vita platforms. And even if the game was given away free to PS+ members in June 2015, these are sure to sell out really quickly to physical media fans – especially on PS Vita as the system has already been attracting the attention of collectors for a number of months who eye it as the modern equivalent of Sega’s ill-fated Dreamcast.
When Futuridium EP Deluxe was first released in 2014, it was met with mostly positive reviews, with Push Square awarding the game 8/10 and stating that “With tight gameplay, sharp shooting, and a remarkable sense of style, Futuridium EP Deluxe is a delightful 3D shooter. While there are certainly moments of frustration to be had here – predominantly stemming from misjudged aiming – the gorgeous graphics and stellar soundtrack more than make up for any misgivings. Oh, and if you do decide to play it, be sure to use headphones“.
But to be honest, and regardless of how good Futuridium EP Deluxe actually is, the game’s bound to sell out rather quickly. If only because of its rather limited print run.
