Premium Edition Games just announced their next lineup of titles with their Series 4 Direct. If you’re not familiar with them, they are a fairly new publishing company that makes physical games for the Nintendo Switch. They’ve released three series of games so far with great success. And Series 4 looks to be another great line up of titles for physical collectors to sink their teeth into.
Their first title announced was Wunderling DX from Bitwave Games, which is a cute and colorful platformer with puzzles, collectables, and secrets to be found.
The next game on the list was Rain on your Parade from Unbound Creations. It’s a hilariously charming game where you play as a cloud trying to ruin everyone’s day.
Both games come in Standard Premium and Retro Editions. With all their standard releases, you get a high quality slipcase, two-sided inlay art, a challenge card (that you can complete to earn a free patch), a full color manual, and a super rad dog tag! The Retro Editions include all the items in the Standard Premium along with extra goodies. Items include a CD soundtrack, enamel pin, vinyl sticker sheets, and a retro style box. Rain on your Parade, however, will include a beautiful custom wooden coaster instead of a soundtrack. Both editions of the games will be available starting May 10, 2022. The Standard Editions will be four-week open pre-order and the Retro Editions will be limited to 500 copies each.
The next announcement was a new line of games called The Premium Classic Series. Volume One includes 10 aftermarket NES games all on one amazing switch cartridge. The games included are:
- Orebody Binder’s Tale – by Orebody Inc.
- Nessy the Robot – by Daniel T. Gaming
- Space Raft – by Space Raft
- Ninja 1 & 2 – by Sergio Elisondo
- Kubo 3 – by Dale Coop
- Assimilate – by Nessylum Games
- Jester – by Collector Vision Game
- Eyra The Crow Maiden – by Second Dimension
- Doodle World – by Nate Peters
- Yeah Yeah Bebiss 2 – by John Riggs
The genre of games range from side scrollers to platformers to racing to shumps and so much more! It will come in a Standard Premium release with a four-week open pre-order this summer.
The last game shown was a tease for Series 5. A trailer for Raji: An Ancient Epic Enhanced Edition from Nodding Head showed off the truly gorgeous game with a Prince of Persia style.
Premium also provided an update for Sunshine Manor from developer Fossil Games. With a tease of launch happening possibly in October, it could be just in time for Halloween. They also revealed Gamers4Gamers variants for their Series 3 titles coming soon that will benefit the Gamers4Kids charity.
This was an action-packed event full of great new games for everyone to enjoy. I, for one, am super excited to get my hands on them. Let us know in the comment section below what you’re excited for and what games you plan to pick up.
