The metroidvania of Nazarenes with metal hood will have a physical edition, but with very few units and only through a store.
One of the most acclaimed Spanish indies of the year, Blasphemous, will have a physical edition starting next November 15, but only for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. And not only that, but it will also feature a collector's edition that will cost $ 79.99 and will include the soundtrack on a CD, an art book, a double-sided poster, an illustration, a pin and the jewel of the crown, a 12-centimeter tall figure of Mea Culpa, the sword of the game's protagonist.
Of course, you better be attentive if you are interested in getting a physical copy, because both the standard version and the collector version will be sold only through the Limited Run Games store and it will only have limited units. It will be necessary to set an alarm, because reservations will open on November 15 at 4:00 p.m. Spanish time.
