Stardew Valley is getting a physical release on Nintendo Switch and PC. Game creator ConcernedApe (Eric Barone) announced standard and collector’s editions on Twitter, both of which are now available to preorder. The products come as a collaboration project between the developer and online storefront Fangamer, and they are planned to ship on Nov. 6, 2020.

Stardew Valley Standard Edition will cost you $29 on PC and $34 on Switch compared to the Collector’s Edition, which is $64 on PC and $69 on Switch. While the Standard Edition simply comes with the game’s case and a nifty manual, the Collector’s Edition comes with heaps of goodies for die-hard fans, including a deluxe six-piece wooden standee, wooden lapel pin, 14-page comic, an authentic deed to your farm, and more. Those that preorder the Collector’s Edition before Aug. 15 will be gifted a bonus poster. You can see the contents of Stardew Valley’s premium physical version in the picture below.
ConcernedApe has been busy, with the indie developer having mentioned the existence of two new Stardew Valley-related games back in February. One project is said to be set in the same world without a farming focus, while the other is planned to tie into Stardew Valley “in some way.”
