Publisher Red Art Games has taken delivery of the long-awaited physical version of Atooi's excellent Xeodrifter and confirmed that it will begin shipping them out to customers next week. As you can see below in a post from Twitter, the standard box comes in a cardboard sleeve with some fetching art:

Fans of the physical article often have to wait a while after the digital release for a boxed cartridge version, and that's certainly the case for this indie Metroidvania, which launched over two years ago on the Switch eShop (and also released on Wii U and 3DS). Still, better late than never! It's a fun little game that we enjoyed when we reviewed it back in February 2018 (and on previous Nintendo consoles) - check out the trailer above if you need a refresher.

If you haven't pre-ordered this one but like the look of it, there are still copies available from Red Art's website. It's priced at 29,99€ and there were only 2800 copies produced, so we'd snap one up sooner rather than later if you can't get enough of those bitter little Switch cartridges.

It's like the old saying: "Good things come in small packages to those who wait." That's definitely right, no need for corrections in the comments, please. Will you be picking this indie gem up physically?
