Strictly Limited Opens Preorders for Taito Milestones 1 & 2 Bundle and Collectors Edition

Here's your chance to get both Switch-exclusive Taito collections in physical form.

Taito Milestones 2 is a Switch-exclusive collection of 10 arcade classics from Taito. The collection will feature a quality assortment of games, including three co-op shoot 'em ups: Darius IIGun Frontier, and Metal Black. The first Taito Milestones didn't have as strong a games lineup, but collectors might still want to own them both. Hence, Strictly Limited Games has opened preorders for a bundle with physical editions of both games. For even more physical goodness, a new collectors edition and an upgrade for owners of the Taito Milestones 1 collectors edition are also up for grabs.

Strictly Limited offers the following bundles:

Additionally, these upgrades are available for owners of the previous Taito Milestones physical editions:
