Next week’s LRG3 digital showcase promises 30+ trailers and physical game reveals
For the third year in a row, Limited Run Games will be a part of our summer stream smoothie, so don’t spoil your appetite. (And bring money. Lots of money!) The physical game purveyor is hosting its LRG3 digital showcase on June 6 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific.
For this year’s showcase, Limited Run Games will be covering “over 30 awesome game trailers and physical release reveals for bespoke, high-quality collector’s editions,” which is par for the course at this point. You’ll be able to watch along on the company’s Twitch channel. Expect to see plenty of Mega64 shenanigans, as the boys are back in town.
Unit MEGA64 is in dire need of assistance! They’re about to recover 30+ stolen trailers from this year’s LRG3 Showcase from the hands of evil agents. We need to make sure these physical release reveals get out to the people in one piece. You in? Read on: https://t.co/EAs4HsK5ZZ pic.twitter.com/rAfmiwv3Pd

We know of at least one high-profile release that’ll show up: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. A tweet last month confirmed a Collector’s Edition reveal at LRG3.
I feel like some of you will tune in just for TMNT, but that’s just one of many games. There’s plenty of room for other limited editions, and it’s been great to see Limited Run (and other folks doing similar work) on the rise in spite of industry trends. As we’ve seen, there’s still plenty of demand for physical releases — especially when they’re done right.
For those of you in North Carolina (or anyone willing to travel for the sake of hard-to-find video games), Limited Run recently opened its first retail store in Cary, as pictured above. I haven’t been! But have you ever had that dream where you’ve somehow stumbled upon the motherload — rare games as far as the eye can see — and then you wake up?
With new showcases filling out the rest of June, LRG3 won’t be everyone’s top priority, but it’s bound to be a fun one for collectors. Let’s all try to stay on budget, shall we?
