Questions and Answers
Q) What is included in this release?
A) As this is a collection of three titles, those who purchase the entire collection will receive a master slipcase, an acrylic stand featuring the trio from Valis III, as well as each of the three games themselves. Each game comes packed in a replica Genesis/Mega Drive clamshell case that features a reversible inlay cover with alternate artwork, a full-colored instruction manual, art card, and an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
Q) Is this the same collection that is on the Switch?
A) This is an entirely separate collection independent from other Valis collections. None of the work between either release was shared and fans can expect the quality and attention to detail that RetroBit continued to offer for each of their releases.

Q) What consoles can play this cartridge?
