Company Description
Welcome to Limited Run Games, where our motto is ‘Forever Physical’. As we see the game industry sharply shifting towards digital gaming, we feel a sense of pride towards the nostalgia of taking a disc (or cartridge!) out of its case and inserting it into the console for the first time. It’s the feeling of walking in and seeing a game on the shelf that brings back so many fond memories or holds the power to create new ones. Physical is forever and we are happy to be able to help support developers and gamers on this mission to preserve physical gaming.

Formed in 2015 by two video game enthusiasts, Limited Run Games, is celebrating its 7th year of bringing physical games and Collector’s Editions to life. Some of our most notable releases to date have been physical versions of Celeste, Night Trap, River City Girls, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (TM) : The Game. We've created physical games for iconic franchises like Star Wars, DOOM, Monkey Island, Castlevania, Contra, Jak and Daxter, and many more! We are collector’s at heart, and put that passion into each and every release. Limited Run Games, Inc. is a part of the Embracer Group.

Located in Apex, NC, where the motto is “The Peak of Good Living,” we are conveniently located near Raleigh/Durham and RDU airport.
