Fans of physical games and products are in for a real treat as Team Cherry has teamed up with Fangamer to finally give us a physical version of Hollow Knight. Not only that, but they will also be releasing a special Collectors Edition that is filled to the brim with goodies that will make any fan of the franchise happy. This version will be available for the PlayStation 4 the Nintendo Switch and PC.
This isn’t the first time that the developer has attempted to bring the game out for a physical release. Near the end of last year, Team Cherry announced that they were ending their partnership with Skybound Games as they found that the process was much strenuous than they thought. However, Fangamer has stepped up to take their place, and it looks like we’re getting one heck of a Collectors Edition to boot. This announcement isn’t too long after they unveiled Hollow Knight: Silksong, a full fledged sequel to the first game, which we hope to see more of soon.
Included in the Collectors Edition is the game itself, a manual and a Hollownest fold out map, a Gold Foil Collectors Box, Gold Foil Art Print, a Knight Brooch and Stand and a Quirrel comic book. In addition, those who pre-order it also get a papercraft set. The Switch version has one extra feature that the others don’t have, a Hollow Knight Themed Cleaning Cloth, which makes sense considering that the Switch is touted as a portable home console and necessitates cleaning the screen every now and then.
If the Collectors Edition doesn’t interest you, you can still buy the Standard Edition which comes with the game, manual, and the map. The Collectors Edition will cost $64 for the PlayStation 4 and PC, while the Switch version will cost a bit more at $69, presumably for that cleaning cloth. The Standard Edition will cost $29 for the PlayStation 4 and PC, and once again it will be more for the Switch at $34. Both versions will ship this year on May 31.
