Owlboy is one of the most critically acclaimed platformers of the last few years. Developed over the course of ten years, the game launched on PC in 2016, and received rave acclaim. It’s also getting a console release at last next week, releasing on Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
But if you would rather own a physical copy of the game, then the good news is you will get the chance to do so- at least, if you are on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Because developer D-Pad Studios and publisher Soedesco announced today that the game will be getting a physical release on those platforms.
In a statement, Soedesco expressed excitement at the prospect of Owlboy‘s physical release on Switch, since this actually marks the first physical Switch game from them. “We’ve had to keep quiet about this for some time, but now I can finally announce our first physical Switch game! Owlboy is a really great title to start off our Switch line-up with, but we’ve certainly got more coming up,” they said.
If you want the physical release of the game, you don’t have to wait for long, because Owlboy will be out physically on Nintendo Switch and PS4 on May 29; if you don’t want to wait, you can get it on PC now, and on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS4 starting next week.
