Even after thirty years, there are still new games launching for the Nintendo Entertainment System regularly, with Orebody: Binder's Tale being the latest example of that.

The run-and-gun platform shooter, about an orphaned battlebot named Binder, is getting a physical release courtesy of Premium Edition Games. This will likely be welcome news to NES collectors, but probably not so welcome news for their wallets.

The physical release comes in two editions, including the NES CIB Edition and a Limited Silver Edition, with the main difference between the two (as far as we can tell) being the colour of the cart and the price point.

While the NES CIB Edition costs roughly $59.95, the Silver Edition will cost an eye-watering $99.95, which likely be a bit too steep for some folks.

If that's the case for you, then you can always hold out for the itch.io digital release, which will eventually retail for around $9.99, or the Nintendo Switch edition, which also likely be cheaper. But if you're someone who wants to play the game on original hardware, you can find more details about what's included with the two NES editions below:

NES CIB Edition:

  • Original Nintendo Entertainment System Game Cartridge w/ Colour Label and plays in your original NES!
  • Full-Colour Manual with beautiful artwork throughout
  • A Numbered Challenge Card where you can earn a limited Challenge Patch!
  • NES-Style Retro Box that fits everything including a Dust Sleeve and Styrofoam Block! - Bonus Premium Dog Tag only for Pre-orders!

NES CIB Limited Silver Edition:

  • Original Nintendo Entertainment System Game Cartridge w/ Colour Label and plays in your original NES, and the cartridge is an eye-catching silver for the ultimate old-school vibe!
  • Full-Colour Manual with beautiful artwork throughout
  • A Numbered Challenge Card where you can earn a limited Challenge Patch!
  • NES-Style Retro Box that fits everything including a Dust Sleeve and Styrofoam Block!

You can secure your copy here. Pre-orders for the physical editions will go live on July 10th, 2022 at 12pm EST. What do you make of it? Are you going to splash the cash for a physical cartridge? Or wait to buy it digitally?
