Best Buy has just tweeted that they’ve partnered up with Limited Run Games to bring you physical copies of two Nintendo Switch games this holiday season. Most likely you will not be surprised to hear that these physical copies are available exclusively through Best Buy, though. The two games in question are Yooka-Laylee and Golf Story, both for the Nintendo Switch.

 

According to the Best Buy website, the physical copies of Golf Story will launch on December 11th, 2018. On the other hand, the release date for the physical copies of Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch is listed as “Not Announced”. That seemingly doesn’t bode so well if you’d like to get it before Christmas. Regardless, a physical copy of Yooka-Laylee will set you back $49.99, while a physical copy of Golf Story is $29.99. The physical copies of these games are made possible by Limited Run Games, and Best Buy’s own tweet says that once they’re gone, they will be gone for good. Physical copies for both games on Nintendo Switch are available for pre-order on Best Buy’s website now.

Yooka-Laylee is a classic style platformer collect-a-thon game with bright, colorful graphics and goofy gameplay. It is rated “E10+ (Everyone 10+)” by the ESRB. Golf Story is a golfing game and is rated “E (Everyone)” by the ESRB.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
