Limited Run Games pays tribute to two Tribute Games titles, announces Switch physical releases

In case you were wondering what the next titles Limited Run Games would announce for its Switch physical lineup, wonder no more! The physical publisher announced that it will release Tribute Games’ Mercenary Kings and Flinthook sometime in the near future, with the digital versions popping up on the eShop soon.

From the included press release email:

Mercenary Kings:  Tribute Games, formed from the team who previously worked on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, including animator Paul Robertson. Mercenary Kings is a side-scrolling shoot ’em up/run ‘n gun similar to games from SNK’s Metal Slug series.

Flinthook: Flinthook is an action platformer and roguelike indie video game by Tribute Games in which the player’s character uses a grappling hook to traverse procedurally generated spaceships for treasure.

While Flinthook was previously released physically on PlayStation 4 last year, Mercenary Kings will also receive a PlayStation 4 and Vita release sometime this year.
