As much as I love the game, I don’t need a collectible physical edition of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 from Limited Run Games – but boy am I tempted to show up when pre-orders open next week.
There’s a $30 standard copy for Nintendo Switch and PS4 with typical cover art and a manual tucked inside, which is fine. The $60 Classic Edition, on the other hand, has new box art from artist Tom duBois, the guy responsible for bringing Konami games to life before you even put the cartridge in your console.
His take on Curse of the Moon 2 feels at home with the retro era. I’m enamored. Little Hachi!
Apart from the game, this pricier collector’s set also comes with an 18×24″ poster (featuring duBois’ art in all its glory), the soundtrack on CD, and a cozy NES-style sleeve. It’s available for Switch and PS4.
Pre-orders for Limited Run’s standard and Classic Edition copies of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 will run from Friday, February 26 at 10:00 am Eastern until March 28 at 11:59 pm.
