Train2Game News The Switch Collector

Hagen’s Alley Entertainment today announced a reprint of The Switch Collector: Volume One, a full-color, comprehensive guide to every game physically released in the first year of the Nintendo Switch™ console.

The initial Kickstarter campaign for The Switch Collector: Volume One was funded within hours of launch and only 500 additional copies will be made available to pre-order on today at 11:00 AM EST at https://premiumeditiongames.com/products/the-switch-collector-volume-one?variant=34303995543685.

Additionally, there will be a surprise with this printing along with a free upgrade feature for all Volume Two copies.

Created by noted video game historian and writer Jeffrey Wittenhagen, the unlicensed and unofficial The Switch Collector is a comprehensive “Switchopedia” Collector book series that will cover all the physical releases for the Nintendo Switch™ along with the must play digital-only releases we would like to see come out physically. 

This initial volume, titled “Volume One” is the first of its kind about the system and covers the first year of the Nintendo Switch™ from the launch all the way to its first year anniversary. From Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey to indie favorites like Retro City Rampage and Azure Striker Gunvolt, there is a ton of ground to cover in the first year alone!

The Switch Collector: Volume One is a perfect 8.5″ x 11″ size that matches every other hardcover release by Hagen’s Alley and is an industry standard, using high quality binding and glossy page stock to create a stunning book. This ensures that each and every full color page will be of the highest quality. Each book comes with two bookmark ribbons, blue and red, which matches the original release joy-con colors. The hardcover book also mimics a Nintendo Switch™ box release with a red spine and white text so it can be displayed with your collection flawlessly!

“In addition to the wealth of information compiled in these books, my favorite part is the Contributor Switch Stories,” said Wittenhagen. “Sharing personal stories with other gamers is the heart of this hobby, so we wanted to make sure to include them in our Switch Collector editions and respect the historical impact of this console.”

Jonathan Polan, founder of JP’S SWITCHMANIA and co-founder of Premium Edition Games, has contributed his expertise to this volume, exploring variant packaging, collector’s editions and more. 

With anticipated shipping in time for the 2021 Holidays, this is the ideal gift for any passionate Nintendo fans on your list. WIth only 500 copies available, be sure to pre-order now!
