Limited Run Games is a website that prints physical copies of popular indie games in a limited capacity. Their typical product will only be made available within one month (with preorders), or will be sold with a set limit of copies (first come first serve). Until now, the Limited Run website was the only place those games could be bought in the physical world.
Limited Run is popular enough of a venture now that they took the notice of Best Buy — the big, blue behemoths themselves. Best Buy entered a deal for Limited Run to produce a second shipment of their two most demanded 2018 titles — Yooka-Laylee and Golf Story for Switch.
LRG offered both games on their website last summer, and due to the time it takes to print and manufacture the games, customers are only just now receiving their copies in the mail. They may notice the Best Buy variants of Yooka-Laylee and Golf Story look a bit different.
“Best Buy has different covers so we can keep your purchase through our site exclusive and special versus what could be found on their shelves,” tweeted Limited Run. For those who bought the originals but prefer the new Best Buy covers, the sheets will be sold on the Limited Run website for 99 cents apiece.
Physical Switch copies of Yooka-Laylee and Golf Story are now available on the Best Buy website, while supplies last. It is unknown if copies will show up in physical Best Buy locations.
