The hour of PlatinumGames’ Sol Cresta is almost upon us (February 22, to be exact). The space shooter looks like a delightful retro affair for all of us who grew up with titles like Axelay and Ikaruga, as well as games in the Cresta series. To the shock of literally no one, Limited Run Games has announced a physical release for Sol Cresta. Pre-orders go live tomorrow, February 4, at 10 AM, and there will be two editions to purchase.
Sol Cresta’s Collector’s Edition looks bonkers
Have a look at the two variants below:

The basic edition is pretty light. It includes the physical cartridge and costs $49.99.
The Collector’s Edition is more robust. It contains the following:
- Physical Copy of Sol Cresta for Switch
- Yuzo Koshiro 2-Disc Soundtrack
- Sol Cresta Art Cards
- Sol Cresta Enamel Pin
- 2 Sol Medals
- Sol Cresta Metal Replica Ship
- Acrylic Standees
- 5.5in Tall Mini Arcade Cabinet Replica with Video Screen – Plays Video Only
The mini cabinet and replica ship are amazing. Though I do wish there were three of them like the main game illustrates. Regardless, this is still a cool collection and can be yours for $129.99.
After the pre-orders go live tomorrow, you will have six weeks to get in a purchase. Plenty of time to receive your tax refund and put it towards this!
