The full 1.0 release of Temtem will be available to purchase physically upon its release date this September, including a collector’s edition that contains a statue, three temcards, patches, pins, and a special box. That version will retail for $99.99, and it is available for preorder now. Listings for the standard edition should go live at retailers soon.

The Temtem 1.0 release date trailer outlines the Pokémon-ish experience that lies in store, and there are indeed eight Dojo Leaders to defeat across six islands. However, the game’s time in early access has proven that it is more than a simple clone. Chiefly, one of the major gameplay differences is that you can enjoy your adventure in co-op, exploring or battling alongside a friend. Weekly quests also appear as an incentive to keep playing, and there will be battle passes with free and premium content that add more. The game is likely to keep you busy for a while, at least.

If you want a head start on Temtem 1.0 ahead of its September launch, our sister site PC Invasion has a variety of guides to help you get up to speed.
