IREM Collection Volume 1 Collector’s Edition
If you want to go big, Strictly Limited Games is offering a big league Collector’s Edition, framing the games and making them complete, with original soundtracks and physical collectibles.
The premium Collector Box is in a 4:3 format to pay tribute to the old school screen ratio, with a magnetic closure to keep all the items safe and exclusive.
Three CDs of original soundtracks sitting in a Digifile, are included, with enough room to showcase every game and its unparalleled music.
Also included is a Visual Compendium, with background info on the games and their history, unique insights and level and character designs. From pixel sprites to context art, it’s all there.
In a separate box is the Collector’s Coin, with a design inspired by classic arcade coins, along with logos and key elements from the games’ visuals.
To round it all out, Retro Print material is included. This gives you things like reprints of flyers from back in the day, mini-DIY reproductions in the style of the NES game box, a marquee sticker, a foil catching the vibe of arcade light panel designs and posters showing the key visual in impressive size.
These editions are going to be limited to 2,000 individually numbered copies for Nintendo Switch and 999 each for PS4 and PS5. All for the unbeatable price of €89.99 / $89.99.
