I just hope it isn't 10 hours long after 100% especially when they want $30. These games beg to be expanded on like a metroidvania style beat'em up.
Any problems with me buying digital, then by all means send me Physical copies of the games you do not want me to own digitally

well playtime can vary. I would say $30 is a great deal considering:

1. 2D sprites pixel art is so difficult and expensive to do these days, even Capcom refuses to go back to 2D due to the tedium, time and money it costs to make.

2. Wayforward are masters of their craft, this is the first open world beat em up on modern consoles with layers of depth to it. its not a mere stage 1-6 arcade game. people dont play RCG, they practically live it.

3. voicovers, not cheap to do, and the game looks fully voiced.

4. 2D cinematic cutscenes. against not cheap to do, this is the highest production values 2D beat em up, since... ever.

5. the graphics are outstanding for a retro 2D game. Phantom Breaker Battle Grounds can't hold a candle to this. not even the RCR series games before this.

6. there are items, moves, stats, its' practically a beat em up RPG.

7. it has more replay value potential than straightforward linear beat em ups.

8. it has Kunio and Riki unlockable characters. not sold separate.

9. Misako and Kunio are very animated with fluid animations. this level of quality is not some cheap $20 game. Bloodstained ROTN costs $40 and Miriam and the others sure dont have this level of combat RCG has.

10. the presentation surpasses even some games that sell for more.

11. it looks way more content packed and massive than games like SP vs TW.
it has layers of qualities to it. manga cutscenes, full animated cutscenes, voiceovers, animated portraits, high quality art. we havent even seen 1/4 of what the game has.

even if the game is '10 hours long', that is massive for a beat em up considering even legends like Streets of Rage 2 can be beaten in less than half hour. and SOR3 all secrets can be done in less than an hour.

plus both Kyoko and Misako have their own moves, so that doubles the playtime experiencing the whole game as each of them, and there's also unlockable characters options too.

12. with the layers of depth and styles, players could come up with different ways to beat it.

this isnt a remaster of a retro game. they created this game and its quality assets from scratch.
even with a $5,000,000 budget, the ROTN team wouldnt be able to replicate what RCG team is accomplishing. doing all this in 2D takes a lot of work and time to do right, and that costs more money overall.

and it sure is a heck a lot more and better than ASW's effort with Double Dragon IV.

Looking forward to this and Streets of rage 4.

I would love to see Golden axe get the Streets of rage treatment.
