Today Super Rare Games announced a partnership with Massive Monster and Armor Games Studios to launch a limited physical edition of the popular platformer The Adventure Pals.
The game will cost $34.99 / £29.99 / €33.99 depending on where you live, and pre-orders will be made available on the publisher’s store starting on Jan. 10. The limited physical run of the game will include 4,000 copies, so you may want to grab one while you can.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can check out an official description and bullet points below.
“The Adventure Pals is an action-packed platformer about friendship, exploration, and riding your giraffe. And, of course, the age-old tale of an evil madman with the nefarious plan of turning old people into delicious hot dogs.”
- Explore five distinct worlds, all with their own unique characters and quests.
- Level up by defeating baddies to improve your health, stabbin’, or rock-smashin’.
- Gameplay that’s easy to pick up, but ramps up the challenge as you go.
- A fun and funny story with a bizarre but lovable cast and hilarious cartoon cutscenes.
- Play by yourself, or with a bestie in co-op mode.
- Three words: Giraffe. Helicopter. Tongue.
The game was originally released in April 2018 for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Super Rare Games Head George Perkins accompanied the press release with a comment:
“I was at a games show in London with my little sister and we spent half of our time there playing this game. Its funny, clever and offers hours of satisfying platformer gameplay. When we left, she told me I had to sign the game. I am glad that I will be able to get her a copy of ‘The Adventure Pals’ for her shelf”
Massive Monster Director James Permain also had a comment to share:
“We are thrilled to be working with Super Rare on bringing a physical version of The Adventure Pals to Switch! The game feels right at home on a Nintendo console and plays great in local co-op using the Joy-Cons. It will make a colorful addition to anyone’s collection!”
The physical Super Rare edition of the game will come with a 20-page full-color manual, interior artwork, exclusive sticker, and three trading cards randomly selected from a five-card set.
