Limited Run releases Corpse Killer, Transistor collector’s editions July 5


At 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Friday, July 5, Limited Run Games will launch an allotment of collector’s editions for the games Corpse Killer and Transistor.

Released in 1994 for Sega CD, 32X and 3DO, Corpse Killer is an adventure game featuring live action video that tasks players with stopping an army of zombies. The $59.99 PlayStation 4 collector’s edition includes the game, a decal, a booklet, a script, a two disk soundtrack and a reversible poster.

According to Limited Run Owner Josh Fairhurst, each collector’s edition will also include a unique piece of Corpse Killer memorabilia, like production slides, mail order preview VHS tapes and press photos.

Corpse Killer’s PS4 release will also be available in a standard edition for $29.99. Pre-orders will be accepted until July 19.

Transistor’s $79.99 collector’s edition includes a ring worn by the main character, coasters from the club the main character sings at, a postcard featuring the game’s fictitious setting, a soundtrack CD, a poster and two enamel pins. Batches will be available at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET and will be available for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

The standard PS4 and Switch editions are $34.99 each and will be available to pre-order through July 19.

Transistor was released in 2014 to positive reception from the games press.

Our Take

I love Transistor’s neon-drenched art style, strategic battle system and talking weapon that’s reminiscent of the narrator from Supergiant Games’ 2011 title Bastion. I’ll definitely grab it for Switch.

However, live actors in video games have always weirded me out. I’m not sure why—in the medium I love most, I’m open to variations on graphics, gameplay and pretty much everything else. Experimentation is my reason for returning to gaming so often. Maybe I’ll use Corpse Killer to confront my apprehension, although, I should pick a game with less bloodthirsty zombies.
