Instead of launching on 28th May for $39.99, physical distributor Leadman has now revealed the game will arrive on 6th August, due to some technical difficulties. Despite the delay, the two-in-one collection –including both Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition and Guacamelee! 2 – can still be pre-ordered.
A press release further explained the delay and also confirmed the game's DLC in the Switch release would be included as codes in the box:
We just wanted to let you know that due to unforeseen circumstances, the physical release of the Guacamelee! One-Two Punch Collection for Switch and PS4 has been officially delayed until August 6th. It turns out that it's not as simple to release a multi-application cart/disk as we initially thought! We're confident in this new date however, and do not foresee any further delays.
On the plus side, while we were figuring all of this out we've also figured out a way to include all of the DLC for both games as part of the purchase. On PS4, all DLC will be included on the disc, and on Switch the DLC will be included as codes in the box.
Will you still be adding this physical release to your collection? How do you feel about the DLC being included as codes? Let us know in the comments.
