On today's episode of 'Japan gets all the cool stuff and we're growing increasingly jealous by the day', we introduce to you the upcoming Collector's Edition of Stardew Valley.
Yes, the hugely addictive farming simulator is getting the physical treatment in the land of the rising sun, with a fancy bundle set to be available in January. Oizumi Amuzio is releasing the special bundle, complete with a Beginner's Guide Book for those new to the game, the game's original soundtrack, and a physical map of Pelican Town.
The bundle will be available to consumers on 31st January 2019, retailing at 3,500 yen (before tax). Of course, assuming this bundle doesn't make it to the west - although we can't know for sure - there may well be options to import this package should you be particularly interested. We wouldn't blame you if you did import a copy either - Stardew Valley is a mighty fine way to spend your time.
Are you a fan of Stardew Valley? Might this special edition tempt you to double-dip and import? Let us know in the comments.
Here I go paying more import taxes...
I'm not going to import this, but if they release a physical version here I will get it. I already bought Stardew Valley on Steam and digitally on Switch but I'm a sucker for physical versions of games especially if it comes with maps, books, or soundtracks.
I'll hold out for word of an English physical release, European or otherwise, but this is one I'd like to add to my physical collection, and play too.
Doesn't even need to be a collector's set, I'll be happy to just get the game.
This game is so bloody good,I can't get enough of it. I'm in the middle of fall in my 2nd year with around 70 hours played. Yet I've still got so much to do and achieve. My farm is really taking shape though and it looks a lot nicer than that messy one in the screenshot above. I have 2 barns and 2 coops with one of each upgraded. I have 8 cows, 2 goats, 8 chickens and 4 ducks. I also just had a shed constructed although I'm not really sure why I bothered with that just now. I made a nice garden for it though so it looks the part.
What really impresses me about this game is just how incredibly polished it all is. The look, the little touches the absolutely superb soundtrack. You can really tell how much work went into creating it. To me it feels like a first party Nintendo game.
Edit, how could I forget my stable and the horse that comes with it. That horse has made the game even more enjoyable and I don't go anywhere without it. I unoriginally named it Epona. All my other animals are named after Beatles, rock stars and ex-Celtic players, with the exception of my cat who is named after my mums cat.
Guess this will be my first import. Well, this or the Piranha Plant slippers.
Got this fame two days ago. And I'm obsessed.
I'm assuming this will be released for switch? Doesn't say anywhere if it's multi platform or PC only or whatever.
Does the Japanese physical release have English as an option?

I might buy it over here, was looking forward for a physical release.
3500 yen is 31$. Sounds fair price to me for a collectors edition.
Another reason I'm glad I moved to Japan!
For $31, this is a great collector's edition of a true indie classic. Worth importing for sure, if it IS a Switch version.
Don't show me this! I am backlogged enough as it is, but seeing this is making me want to dump another hundred hours on a new farm!
Well I will import it just for the reason-Physical edition. I doubt the West will see this so when it release I will make a preorder for it.
