Good news! The rumours were right! Yes, they were spread by the publishers, Strictly Limited Games, so it's not much of a surprise — but Heaven's Vault is indeed getting a limited physical release.
With just 1,900 copies of the Nintendo Switch boxed game available, you'll want to make sure to place your pre-order as soon as they go live on June 12th at 12am CEST (11am BST, 6am ET).
There's also a Special Limited Edition box available to purchase, with only 900 in existence. These boxes include:
- Special Limited Edition Box
- Colourful Game Manual
- Original Soundtrack with previously unreleased bonus tracks
- 10 Puzzle Cards
- Timeline of the Nebula
- Archaeologist’s Notebook
- 4 transparent Stickers
The other editions of the game are the Standard one, which just includes the game and a manual, The Book Bundle, which includes the two Heaven's Vault books by Jon Ingold, and the Special Limited Edition plus the Book Bundle.
The Standard Limited Edition physical release of the game will cost 29.99€, and the Special Limited Edition will cost 49.99€.

Physical game publisher Strictly Limited Games (not to be confused with Limited Run Games or Super Rare Games) just tweeted out a hint at their next physical release:
Having played the game in question, we're roughly 99% sure that the game in question is Heaven's Vault, the incredible archaeology and language game from narrative superstars Inkle.
It looks like the official announcement will come later this week, so we'll update this post when we know more — like what the box art looks like, and if it comes with goodies. If you can't wait that long, there's also the Heaven's Vault books that are already out!
Don't remember this game, but checking your review, Kate, we could do with an update re. the performance issues that were present when you reviewed it.
Agree with @gcunit. The review read like it's a chore to play. Has it been patched or anything?
IIRC it was already patched by the time that review came out
I can’t buy from strictly limited anymore. Their dollar prices are higher than their equivalent in Euros, they don’t remove the VAT, then I have to pay my local taxes, and international shipping. It’s just not worth it.
So no one is going to trash this company for doing what everyone falsely accuses Limited Run of doing? Wassupwiddat?
I'm interested, but my budget won't allow me to grab a copy.
@SpeedRunRocks Perhaps those who trashed LRG has yet to see this article or didn't care enough about the game to click on it to complain about it? Personaly I have no big issues with either SLG or LRG.
Can't say I'm super interested in the game yet, but SLG titles usually don't sell out this fast so might have some time to think about getting it.
@SpeedRunRocks Oh I'll gladly trash them. It's all the same exploitative business model. Ridiculous shipping costs, manufactured FOMO, months-long wait times (LRG) though to SLGs credit, at least this is an proper INDIE game release.
That was the original point of LRG, before they started taking money from Konami, Disney, Ubisoft, Bethesda, etc... and before their fetish for crappy 90s FMV titles.
The aforementioned companies are also all multibillion-dollar gaming veterans, who should publish their own damn games. They don't need a boutique "indie" publisher to do it.
So yes, plenty to criticize, and rightfully so.
