If you’ve been wanting to pick up a physical release of the challenging metroidvania platformer Hollow Knight, you’re in luck as the physical version of the game now comes in a fancy Collector’s Edition as well as as a standard edition for Switch, PS4 and PC.
Hollow Knight’s Physical Release Is Back with a Fancy Collector’s Edition
If you’re been following Team Cherry and their quest for a physical edition, it’s been a while since their partnership fell through with Skybound to produce a physical version. They continued to promise fans they would find a way to make it happen. It looks like when there’s a will there is a way, in joining up with Fangamer to bring avid fans a physical release.
You can now pre-order a Fangamer’s standard edition of Hollow Knight which includes all the DLCs released which will either be on cartridge, disc of DRM-free disc with a Steam Key depending on your chosen platform. This version is available for $29 USD on PC and $34 USD for the Switch.
Or if you’re after a special edition, you can pre-order the Hollow Knight Collector’s Edition which will set you back $64 on PC and PS4, or $69 USD on the Switch. Not only do you get a nifty box that is decorated with gold-foil details, but a clear printed sleeve and the game of course. You will also receive a 14-page Quirrel comic book, gold-foil art print set as well as a metal brooch and stand featuring your favourite bug fighter, The Knight.
Both versions come with game, case, manual and a fold-out map of the Hallownest, while the Switch Collector’s Edition also comes with a cleaning cloth. If you pre-order the collector’s edition you can also receive a DIY papercraft figure featuring The Knight, a grub, Quirrel and Hornet.
If you fancy any of these versions you can pre-order via the Fangamer website, the release will ship on May 31st.
