Update: Signature Edition Games has revealed that the lovely Prisoner's Edition of Dead Cells will now feature the Bad Seed DLC - and the Rise of the Giant DLC - on the cart, and has also provided a new release date.

Originally, the Bad Seed DLC was planned to be included as a digital download code, but following "unprecedented demand" from fans, it will now be included on the cart as standard. The original 30th June release date has been pushed back due to coronavirus-related delays, and the new release date is now set for the end of August.

You can find more details in our original article below.

Original Article (Tue 11th Feb, 2020 14:00 GMT): Dead Cells is about to receive its biggest, most super-duper edition yet with this newly-announced Dead Cells - Prisoner's Edition physical release on Nintendo Switch.

Presented in an embossed collector’s tin, this new bundle comes with a 22cm figure of the Prisoner himself, a physical copy of the game, the new Bad Seed DLC, a 7" orange vinyl, pins, stickers, a certificate, a print, keyring, and an art booklet. Phew.

It's set to release on 30th June for both Switch and PS4 and will be priced at £89.99 / €109.99 / $109.99.
