The Nintendo Switch has no shortage of limited run physical releases and special editions peppered throughout its catalog. That trend will continue with the announcement of a limited number of physical Switch releases for Nomada Studio’s indie platform-adventure title GRIS. Having just released this past December, GRIS has already garnered a great number of positive reviews. While you can currently pick up a digital copy for PC or from the Switch eShop, this will mark the title’s first physical release. It should be noted that pre-orders have yet to go live, but fear not as we’re only a day away. A pre-order page will be available on Special Reserve Games’ official website starting tomorrow at 12 PM CDT. This page will continue to allow for pre-orders up until July 17, 2019 at just a minute shy of 12 PM CDT. In addition to the various physical editions of the game itself, there will also be two limited edition vinyl soundtrack releases available from iam8bit beginning that same day. Both will include 2 records, but one will open with a gatefold style while the other will feature a quad-fold style. You can find a brief description of each release in the bulleted ext below.
