Limited-run games on product expansion and Embracer acquisition

The latest from Limited Run Games, what to expect from the company in the future, and the recent acquisition of Embracer.

Limited Run Games has been steadily growing and expanding over the years, recently opening a physical retail store and being acquired by the Embracer Group. Curious to learn more about the products and projects Limited Run has in the works, along with more information on the Embracer acquisition, Shacknews’ Blake Morse connected with Limited Run at PAX West.

At the show, it was noted that the exclusive Limited Run badge was for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which is not only exciting in terms of gameplay, but also in the way it was presented and sold.

Regarding the recent opening of the physical Limited Run store, mention was made of the great attention to detail and love that went into making the store such a cool and nostalgic experience, including how when the store opened, there was a 7 hour line to get on.

Since opening, the store has done well with a steady stream of traffic, even if the store is only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Other areas of focus for Limited Run at this time include the recent expansion of the company’s trading card packs and delving into the trading card business in general.

The conversation continues with other areas of expansion for Limited Run, and overall it’s a fascinating conversation. If you love Limited Run, or are just curious about what the company has in store for the future, be sure to check out the full interview on GamerHubTV.
