Collectors of video games have long loved the physical game. Of course, over the years the digital format has become more popular, but now more than ever physical games have collectors in a frenzy as companies such as Super Rare Games produce limited quantities of physical releases. This allows smaller, most often indie games the opportunity to see their game printed, but also people who want the title on their shelves, the chance to purchase it.
Super Rare Games has just announced that they will release their 100th physical Nintendo Switch title since they launched in 2018. To celebrate this milestone, Super Rare Games will be releasing two games that fans will no doubt be excited about.
