I'm very interested in buying Cosmic Star Heroine for the Switch but I need to know what is the "big surprise" of Friday first, I'm a little tight this month because of Christmas and I can only buy ONE "Limited Run"...

Does anyone knows what is the "surprise"?

No one will know for sure until pretty much the literal second it goes up for sale :/

The Shantae CE looks soooo good with the GBC replica cart and box, can't wait to buy it so even if the mystery game disappoints at least I'll have this. I would love to see the original Shantae get a remake like Wonder Boy did and an option to switch the graphics on the fly.

I know its suppose to be a what-if replica cart of Pirates Curse on the GBC, but you know what would have made this insane, or possibly as a future stand a lone product, just make a re-print of the original game.

We know LRG wants to do their own shells supposedly if they delve into retro stuff, but we are already getting replica carts with this and Yooka, not to mention GALF (though that one could be because another company was working on them), so either that stance has changed or there are specific reasons for all of those past examples existing.

I highly doubt WayForward really cares about keeping the original release rare just for the sake of it, and we already have had LRG working with InfineteNESLives for GALF, so finding another company to handle a GBC release couldn't possibly be that hard (Piko does them, but the cart quality isn't the best). I may be making it seem all too simple, but I mean if you got the shells, you got the original company on board and you have resources of people to actually put the game in the cart, all thats left to do is just make it all happen. Change the label too while they are at it if they dont want to ruffle the feathers of any collectors of the original. GALF was extremely niche. Reprint a hard to find, well received title with a very dedicated fanbase? Thats Nintendo levels of printing money, assuming the manufacturing costs don't out way what I imagine would be a shit-ton of potential buyers beating each other bloody over one. We already have Retrobit releasing the somewhat pricey Holy Diver as a NES release and 8bit has their overpriced re-prints of common games, this could be a mega huge opportunity.


And I am not just saying this cause I want one.

Shantae: The Pirate's Curse is a nice game but I personally prefer "Risky's Revenge", I would have loved seeing this game on Switch too...

Just to get this straight. It's being announced and then immediately on sale. Is it the same 10 am sale time as usual.

I believe the original Shantae game was published by Capcom so they might still have the rights to it. Also I don't think theres a lot of support for gb/gbc reproductions, as much as I loved my atomic purple gbc I would rather play the Shantae port on my 3DS over it anyday of the week.

Same time as usual, but being announced on major sites at the same time it goes on sale, give or take a minute or two depending on when new PlayStation blog update comes out. Something about the developers only wanting it known about at the moment of sale :/

...................

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Methinks they WANT the flood of people to come look just before it goes up for sale, more of a scramble that way, which is 'bbeeeetttteerrrrr???'
But to be perfectly honest i'm not sure, and i don't think ANYONE knows at this point, and with only a few hours to go............ my shrug still stands :/

It's going to (supposed to) be announced on the PlayStation blog prior to release. Since it's LRG, I'm assuming the US PlayStation blog. Expect the announcement within an hour of the sale.


At least this is my speculation.

Yeah I think so too.
I'm kinda torn on it; on one way, if it's a late announcement of something I want it gives me better chances of getting it. However if it's something I'm unsure of then I'll have way less time looking up the game to decide whether to go for a CE or not.

Really hope the blog actually updates in time.

This is me coming from a really selfish place, but i kinda hope they do.

With the print size being as small as it is, the limit being 2 per customer (including the CE), the hype surrounding it AND the news is being posted on an official Sony blog, the scramble for actually buying this game is going to be horrifying enough as it is. I don't really like the idea of a few thousand more people seeing it on Playstation Blog, and far FAR more people wanting to buy the game than have even been printed :/

Ah, f* it... If I can order Cosmic Star Heroine and the "Mystery Game" (if it's a good one), I'll do it.

I've decided not to worry too much about the surprise game until I know what it is.
What kinda sucks is that I've only got like $85 left on my hold order limit so I'll have to do this in two orders. I'm more worried about the Shantae CE at this moment...

Jak & Daxter is a nice surprise for sure but I personally prefer Jak 3.

I know, I realized that just now and decided to change my post. I truly prefer Jak 3 and frankly, Cosmic Star Heroine, Shantae and Jak & Daxter is too much for my wallet.

Nah, I think I saw the quote somewhere and it said that all three will be released BY June. So they'll probably drop at different times until then.
