Recently we were met by the news that Alwa’s Awakening and the sequel Alwa’s Legacy comes in physical edition, called Alwa’s Collection. The edition comes to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch and will cost around SEK 300. At the same time, a limited digital / physical edition was also announced with the games, soundtracks and some extra content delivered on a specially made USB stick.
In addition to these goodies, it is released Alwa’s Awakening, the first game, on Nintendo 8-bit. It is Retro-Bit which stands for marketing, and the edition they got together is a mammoth love letter to physical games.
So there are three editions that have been announced: Alwa’s Collection (PS4 / Switch), Alwa’s Awakening The 8-Bit DigiCal Edition (USB-ROM) as well Alwa’s Awakening: The 8-Bit Edition (NES). The former is exclusive to Limited Run Games, while the others can be pre-booked several Swedish retailers (scroll down the linked page for list).
Varvat loves both Alwa’s adventures. We gave the original a nine and the newer game a (strong) seven, and highly recommend them whether you are a veteran player from the NES or a curious gamer who grew up with mobile games.
