The digital age meant that games could never be out of print again. You can still find a title in an online store, even when your local GameStop is sold out or eBay prices are too high for your blood. However, Devolver is releasing a top-down shooter for Nintendo Switch that appears to be made specifically for the aftermarket, as it will be physical-only with no digital release on the horizon.
Demon Accelerator is what kids would call a “retro style”, and it’s developed by Doinksoft, the makers of Gato Roboto, Grave and Devolver Bootleg. You won’t even be able to pick it up at your local store or major online retailer, as it is only sold on the Collector’s Shop site. Special reserve games. The regular “simple” version will cost $ 30, while there is also a collector’s edition for $ 40. Good luck trying to get one – the site is currently emptying users into a virtual queue. My estimated wait time is … 54 minutes. Which is good, I guess, since the game won’t be available until 2022.
