One of the most adored indie games on Switch, Hollow Knight's journey to a physical release has been an almighty adventure (just like the game itself, then). Luckily, you can go ahead and pre-order a super-duper physical edition right now. So what are you waiting for?
Mumblings of a physical edition have been circulating for a couple of years now, with an official announcement finally coming last summer. Sadly, this release got cancelled and all hope was pretty much lost, but this new Collector's release available through Fangamer has saved the day.
Both standard and Collector's releases are available, priced at $34 and $69 respectively. All physical copies come with a manual and a fold-out map of Hallownest, but the Collector's Edition has some bonus goodies thrown in:
The Collector’s Edition includes:
- Metal brooch with display stand, wall hook, and dual-pronged fastener
- 14-page Quirrel comic book
- Gift-box-style case with gold-foil filigree and a clear printed sleeve
- Gold-foil art print set by Ari Gibson
- Physical copy of the game on your choice of platform
- Nintendo Switch™ copies of the Collector’s Edition include a bonus cleaning cloth
You can pre-order either option for yourself (and see the extras in detail) right here. The game is expected to ship on 31st May.
