POMONA, Calif.Sept. 14, 2021PRLog — As more game companies look toward the future with digital releases, Retro-Bit Publishing(r) continues to find new ways to preserve gaming history with multiple physical releases. Retro gamers can now own exciting and rare titles that have not been available in their region or are very scarce. It also allows you to purchase a licensed title without paying high market prices.

This approach has produced official releases from publishers such as Capcom(r), Irem (r), and Toaplan. The 9 releases have been released over the past four years, including the Mega Man(r). The latest partner is independent developer Elden Pixels ( with Alwa’s Awakening: The 8-Bit Edition.

Alwa’s Awakening ( is a Metroidvania-style game centered around Zoe, a young girl transported to the land of Alwa and tasked with bringing peace to the land. Originally released on Steam in 2017, with its sequel Alwa’s Legacy ( later released in 2020. Elden Pixels teamed with Brad Smith, an independent NES(r), developer, to create Alwa’s Awakening in 8-Bit. This process involved making the 280 MB original game fit into a 512 KB NES(r) cartridge but also includes 2 new songs and 3 new areas to explore and a different way to experience the world of Alwa. Elden Pixels’ homage to 8-bit classics is now available for a limited time during the pre-order window from September 14th – October 17th 2021 for the Nintendo Entertainment System(r) – just as the team originally planned years ago.

Alwa’s Awakening: The 8-Bit Edition includes:

  • Frosted 8-Bit Cartridge

  • Cartridge Packaging with Exclusive Slipcover
  • Behind the Game Developer Interview
  • Certificate of Authenticity
  • Animated Lenticular Card
  • Mini level poster

In addition to this release is a new idea Retro-Bit Publishing has developed called Digical.

What’s a DIGICAL ??

Digical combines aspects of both DIGItal and physiCAL releases. Retro-Bit Publishing has created a revolutionary way to offer gamers an alternative to buying a game. This was based on feedback from the community. Customers can continue to support the developers, but forgo all the extras that come with a physical release.

For $19. 99, you receive the Digical of Alwa’s Awakening: The 8-Bit Edition which includes the game ROM file on an exclusively designed 8 GB USB(r) drive that features the game’s main protagonist, Zoe. You can own the game, collect it, and then play it as you please. “We want to diversify the game experience, so we created a special experience to mark each release ,”. Ron Pang, Chief Business Development at Innex, is the exclusive distributor of Retro-Bit(r).

This will be a limited exclusive run available only during the open pre-order from September 14th – October 17th, 2021

While our mission remains with the privilege to re-release sought-after classic game titles for their original platforms, we understand the demand for digital releases. While we still support the developer, we wanted gamers to have the chance to own the game digitally. We hope this idea will be accepted so we can keep releasing more! ” Ron Pang added.

The Digical you receive is yours to keep. There is no DRM or servers to ping. Alwa’s Awakening: This 8-Bit Edition Digical edition is a step towards allowing the community to embrace this idea and allow for more classics to be published in this format.
