Retro: Astalon: Tears of the Earth Limited Run pre-orders go live this Friday

Astalon: Tears of the Earth Limited Run

Last year, we brought word Astalon: Tears of the Earth was making its way to Nintendo Switch. A retro action platformer, the game launched back in June and looks like a delightful adventure for fans of 8-bit aesthetics. If you were waiting for a physical/fancy collector’s edition of the title, you are in luck. Today, Limited Run Games announced two physical variants of Astalon: Tears of the Earth. Pre-orders for both go up on January 21 and run for four weeks.

Looking at footage of Astalon, it looks like a fun Castlevania-like game

Check out the official announcement for the physical products below:

The Standard Edition of Astalon will net you a cartridge for $34.99.

Meanwhile, the Collector’s Edition will grant you:

  • Physical Copy of Astalon: Tears of the Earth for Switch
  • Astalon: Tears of the Earth Art Book
  • Astalon: Tears of the Earth 3-Disc OST (includes 12 Never-heard before bonus tracks)
  • Astalon: Tears of the Earth Magnet Set

The artbook and OST are cool, but the magnets are kind of meh. This package will set you back $74.99.

As always, you can pre-order Limited Run items through its website. And if you want a taste of what Astalon plays like, you can view an AGDQ run of it below:
