About a year ago, Physicality Games entered the field as one of many companies offering physical versions of some Switch titles. The lineup included Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack, Slay Away Camp, Whispering Willows, and Rolling Gunner. Unfortunately, I’m not interested, so all these releases have been cancelled.
“After eight months of continuous effort, we were unable to achieve sufficient pre-orders for any of the exclusive pre-order titles,” Physicalti Games said in a statement. “Therefore, the company decides to cancel the exclusive reservation title and will begin processing a full refund to the customer in accordance with the warranty.” Also, there seems to be no future plans for the new exclusive reservation title.
Open letter from physical game:
Physical games started with the idea of offering a physical video game specifically for pre-orders in another way. We didn’t want to artificially run out of limited print execution to prevent fans from getting the game they wanted. We wanted a deluxe edition that fans, gamers and collectors would be proud to put on the shelves. Packaged in a beautiful metal display box, it contains items that are meaningful to the game. We needed a site that promoted the community by making it easy for gamers to share their gamer IDs and favorite games over the Internet. We wanted something that was true to our important values of kindness, community, quality and charity.
In many ways we have succeeded. We are proud of the site we created. We are proud of the deluxe editions we have put together and the high level of detail incorporated into every aspect of them. And we are proud to announce from our pocket that we have already made all the charitable donations we have earned through our pre-orders.
However, as a result of eight months of continuous effort, we were unable to achieve sufficient pre-orders for any of the exclusive pre-order titles. Therefore, we will decide to cancel the exclusive reservation title and will begin processing a full refund to you in accordance with the warranty. This was a painstaking decision, but we can no longer consciously ask our customers to keep waiting.
We sincerely apologize for not being able to ship the product, and thank all the fans for their understanding and cooperation.
The physical game website will continue to be published. Games and apparel that are not pre-ordered can continue to be shipped and purchased quickly. The community feature is still active and you can create new accounts and profiles to share online. However, the limited title of advance reservation will not be available.
We ask for your continued understanding and support during this transition period.
