Limited Run Games and Atooi are giving the 3DS its first physical (cartridge) release of 2020. The 3DS has been out since 2011 but is still getting support from some 3rd party developers and publishers. The first physical 3DS game release of 2020 is called Atooi Collection. The collection contains a variety of games developed by Atooi and released on the 3DS eShop over the years. Games like Mutant Mudds and Xeodrifter will be familiar to many 3DS owners. This is a great way to get many of Atooi’s great download only titles on a physical cartridge. This also may be one of the only physical games releasing on the 3DS in 2020. The Atooi Collection is being published by Limited Run Games, who are known for releasing indie games on physical medium in limited supplies. There is no release date or complete details for the game yet but we expect some additional announcements soon. For collectors and 3DS fans this may be one you’ll want to preorder. Watch a small trailer below and let us know what you think using the comments below.
The Atooi Collection will include the games Mutant Mudds Deluxe, Bomb Monkey, Xeodrifter, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, and Chicken Wiggle. Details on pricing and release date where not announced.
Last year we saw a pretty big decrease in the number of 3DS releases, with one of the better releases being Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth. With the Switch already past its 3rd year its pretty amazing that the 3DS is still getting new games 9 years into its life. Hopefully the Atooi Collection won’t be the last 3DS physical release.
