Another digital-only title for the PlayStation 4 and Vita is getting a physical release. That physical version will also be arriving much sooner than one would think.

    Will this be playable on a NA console? Not sure how Play-Asia games work.

    US and JP share a Blu-ray region, should be cool.

    PS4 (and Vita) are region-free (there might be something that lets specific games stop it, but if even there is the game would have to actively apply it, which these won't :) )

    This game was a very fun Metroidvania with lots of sarcastic humor. It's a few years old, though. Why is there a physical release being made now? At this point I would think the original designers have all gone on to do other projects and only vaguely remember working on this title. Just seems very late and unprofitable.

    Physical releases are actually a nice way of supplementing income for smaller devs. I've talked to some who didn't make a ton off of their original PSN releases, but actually got back into being profitable by doing a physical release. It's not like they're having to make the game again, just finding a way to get it into my people's hands.

    ... Is there any specific reason that the physical copies are 12 dollars more? The game is only 12.99 on Steam. I feel like it's more cost effective sticking to the digital copy.

    There's always going to be more overhead getting a physical version. It's not for people wanting the best price as much as for collectors and those who don't want to rely on a digital-only copy.

    I'm a fan of physical copies. I will gladly shell out a little more for a disc version of a game. That way if I had lost my account for unforeseen reasons I still own the game.

    Also as far as Vita goes, its cheaper than dealing with the absurdly expensive memory cards for the system
