    Also worth noting that it'll be on Xbox Games Pass day 1 for Xbox players. It's going to be a long, long 2 to 4 months for me waiting for the physical copy of this game, maybe even longer with the COVID-19 situation. I don't want to double-dip in order to get it at launch, so I'll just wait and hear what people have to say in the meantime. All signs point to this being a good game.

    I did consider the physical version but seeing as I've been wanting 26 years for 4 I'm buying it as soon as it gets uploaded to PSN....

    I think they're doing a Limited Edition which they haven't announced the contents for though, I might get that one later on.

    Oh and pin badges:

    I'm going to buy digital on Xbox then order the Japanese region physical release for Switch (Bare Knuckle IV Special Edition) to go along with my CIB copies of BK1-3

    Is that not just the Classic Edition that it comes large Genesis style case that houses both the regular game case and a limited edition steelbook? There's no Megadrive variant for Europe unfortunately and the Genesis branding is unique to the PS4 version. The Switch version has Switch branding on the Genesis box, and there's no physical Xbox version at all. Both the Classic Edition and standard version have a reversible sleeve with different art and the title "Bare Knuckle IV". Is there actually going to be a Japanese release where the main branding is Bare Knuckle IV?

    Not with the clamshell case like the Limited Run Classic Edition, no. Just a regular PS4/Switch case. The cover art is probably going to be different though. The tentative image shows just a Bare Knuckle IV logo in colour on a black background.

    In regards to the Limited Run version, they've now added a reversible PAL Mega Drive cover to the clamshell (no Japanese MD-style BKIV cover like the regular case cover though, which I'd prefer), and have said the Genesis branding is also on the Switch clamshell cover too, there's just an overlay with Switch branding you can put over it.

    Keep reading the thread - apparently Lizardcube saw this and have actually mailed Koshiro a second Switch so he can play without disrupting his wife's Animal Crossing time! Haha. XD

    That looks tempting but I'm sure it will sell out in an instant.

    Don't worry, the game tells you right off the bat who are you up against and he quickly make an appearance at the beginning.

    I have very strong opinions.

    Something something turn on legacy controls immediately. Something something difficulty spikes. Something something back to the start of a level. Something something INFURIATING POINT/MONEY ITEM PICKUP BUG IF YOU'RE HOLDING A GODDAMN WEAPON.

    So the option to use retro music...

    It's nice and all, but there's some......odd choices for certain stages and bosses. (The first boss for instance uses Mr X's SoR2 theme)

    Oh.....and the SoR1 tracks? Taken from the 8-BIT version.
