Dotemu revealed today that they will be releasing a special Collector's Edition of YS Origin for the Nintendo Switch this year. Aside from the awesome news of the game coming to the Switch, fans in North America can choose between two different physical versions from Limited Run Games, or just be able to download what is essentially a modernized version of the game through the eShop. No word yet from the company on what the release date will be for this, only that you can pre-order the Collector's Edition on July 8th while the game's release will just be happening sometime in 2020. We're guessing based on the timing of the pre-order, we'll probably see it come out sometime in the Fall. Until then, you can check out an image of the edition below along with more info and the trailer!
