Here are all the releases announced during Limited Run Games’ E3 presentation, including Star Wars

Yesterday, North Carolina-based Limited Run Games announced 50 titles across five different platforms during its pre-recorded E3 presentation. We’ve compiled them all here—first by system, then by release date—so you don’t miss out on a physical version of your favorite digital titles.

All products will be sold through Limited Run Games’ digital storefront.

Nintendo 3DS
Limited Run Games’ first release on Nintendo’s long-running handheld machine is The Atooi Collection, which compiles five of the developer’s titles into one SD-card-sized package. Bomb Monkey, Chicken Wiggle, Mutant Mudds Deluxe, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge and Xeodrifter are all included in the release, which currently has no announced date.

PlayStation Vita
For years, PlayStation Vita faithful have looked to Limited Run for their physical fix. Now, with Vita card production halting, Limited Run has announced what looks to be its last batch of Vita games.

Guacamelee, June 14. In this metroidvania that draws heavily from Mexican culture, you play as the recently deceased Juan, who uses a magical luchador mask to return to the mortal plane and save his one true love (and the world, but that’s slightly less important than one true loves).

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!!!, June 14. A platform title that tasks players with traversing terrain while absordbing items to assume various sizes.

Pix the Cat, June 21. Equal parts Pac-Man and Snake, Pix the Cat is a game that asks you to save the ducklings that inhabit the game world’s many mazes.

Super Mutant Alien Assault, July 5. A shooter where every screen is a new level and a new chance to shoot stuff with a variety of guns. Some of that stuff is bosses, which also come in a variety.

Metal Slug 3, July 12. Originally released in 2000 in arcades, Metal Slug 3 has been ported to a number of systems. This edition features co-op play so you and a friend can shoot stuff together.

Atari Flashback Classics, July 2019. Most likely a port of the recently released Switch collection of the same name. That collection contains 150 games, but it counts multiple versions of the same game (arcade, Atari 2600 and Atari 5200 versions of Missile Command, for example), so read the fine print before you purchase to see if it’s right for you.

Deadbolt, Third quarter 2019. You play as the Grim Reaper in a stealth/action hybrid that’s as difficult as its title implies.

Revenant Dogma, 2019. A Japanese RPG that features a 3D battle system in which transformations play a large part.

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, 2019. A shooter/platformer that features full single and multiplayer campaigns.

Rocketbirds 2: Evolution, 2019. A sequel to Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken that refines the former’s mechanics and received critical praise upon release.

Super Meat Boy, 2019. A classic that introduced twitch platforming and punishing difficulty to mainstream audiences.

Damascus Gear Operation Osaka, 2019. This sequel to DGO: Tokyo polishes the first’s rougher edges.

Damascus Gear Operation Tokyo, 2019. Control a mech in this shooter/looter from the makers of the Guilty Gear franchise.

Papers Please, 2020. You work the gate at a fictional country called Arstotzka and people pass you their papers. You decide whether they get in, then you suffer the consequences of your choices.
