Limited Run Games has started pre-orders for a re-release of the classic horror/puzzle title, D, for both PC and the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer (“3DO”) console. First released in 1995 for the 3DO and directed by Kenji Eno, D was later ported over to PC, Sega Saturn, and PlayStation consoles. D was best known both for its full motion video (“FMV”) sequences and a two-hour time limit to complete the game within.
There are two Collector’s Editions available for pre-order through Limited Run Games. The 3DO Collector’s Edition includes a two-disc physical copy of D, a three-disc version of the Japanese Director’s Cut, the soundtrack CD, a slipcover case, an instruction manual, and an 18″ x 24″ poster. The PC version, meanwhile, comes with a physical copy of the game on CD and also on a themed USB drive, a copy of the soundtrack, a slipcover, an instruction manual and an 18″ x 24″ poster.
The 3DO Collector’s Edition retails (pretax/shipping) for $64.99 USD, and the PC Collector’s Edition will set you back (pretax/shipping) only $49.99 USD. Pre-orders are available starting today through March 5, 2022.
I reached out to Limited Run Games to inquire if the included Japanese Director’s Cut would be localized into English or another language. I was told that unfortunately it would be Japanese language only, but that LRG wanted to include it in the Collector’s Edition for completion’s sake.
Have you ever played D on 3DO? What about on the Sega Saturn or PlayStation?
