Friday’s Limited Run Games offerings include Turok, Bard’s Tale

It’s going to be a big Friday this week for Limited Run Games fans. Turok 1 & 2 are coming up, along with The Bard’s Tale and Slime-san.

Getting Limited

If you’re still a fan of physical games, then you no doubt know Limited Run Games well. The company has made a name for itself licensing smaller and, at times, older games and then issuing them on disc.

This isn’t stuff that you’d find at GameStop. LRG offers titles like… well like Turok: Dinosaur Hunter on the Nintendo Switch. Digital-only stuff. Formerly digital-only stuff anyway.

This Friday the company has a fresh slate of them on tap. That’s a collection that includes both limited Collector’s Editions and standard versions of Turok and it’s sequel Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. Then there’s also the classic RPG The Bard’s Tale, and niche fave Slime-san.

The latter two are PS4 titles of course, with the Turok’s hitting for the Nintendo Switch. All of it will go up for sale on Friday though, with 10am and a 6pm (eastern) time slots.

Why specific time slots? Because Limited Run Games sell out fast folks. Very, very fast. Actually, make sure you log into LRG before the sale starts to get the best chance of actually getting one or all of these for yourself.

Yes, I’m serious.

Here are the official rundowns:

  • Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, completely remastered for the Nintendo Switch, get physical Limited Runs for $29.99 each this Friday, August 16th on limitedrungames.com.
  • Turok & Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will also have limited Collector’s Editions available at 10am & 6pm ET on Friday. Both CE’s include a retro-style box, poster, display retro cartridge, and official soundtrack!
    • Turok – A world where time has no meaning – and evil knows no bounds. Torn from a world long gone, the time traveling warrior Turok has found himself thrust into a savage land torn by conflict.
    • Turok 2: Seeds of Evil – Having defeated the Campaigner, Turok throws the Chronocepter into a waiting volcano to destroy it. Unfortunately the blast awakens an even deadlier force – The Primagen. Once again a Turok is tasked with restoring peace to the land and stopping the Primagen from merging Earth with the nether world.
  • Slime-san: SuperslimeEdition gets a Limited Run on PS4 this Friday at 10am & 6pm ET. Priced at $24.99.

Slime-san’s more colorful than ever! The game also comes with a comprehensive level editor that allows you to create, share and play other people’s levels across the world!
  • The Bard’s Tale: Remastered and Resnarkled gets a Limited Run for the PlayStation 4 (featuring a poster with once lost artwork!) at 10am & 6pm ET. Priced at $24.99.
    • You are the Bard, a selfish rogue weary of pointless sub-quests and rat-infested cellars. Through magical song you summon characters to join your quest for coin and cleavage! Prepare to immerse yourself in over 20-30 hours of adventure.
