Sony announced during their E3 conference that PC hit Undertale would make its console debut on the Playstation 4 and PS Vita (this was the only mention of Vita in the entire conference). Today Toby Fox, creator of the game, revealed the release date for the port — August 15. He also revealed it will come in three forms.
The first form is digital, like the PC version. If you buy Undertale on the Playstation Store, you will simultaneously purchase both a PS4 and a Vita version…the one you didn’t select will be a free bonus. How nice of them.
For some people, though, that’s not enough. It’s a shelf-ready, archivable version or nothing! Sony hears you and is printing a physical version of Undertale for $25. This is more than the PS Store version (that one costs $15), but you get something you don’t receive with digital: a story booklet. Remember when games came with manuals?
The third option is the Collector’s Edition, which retails at $64 and comes with everything the standard physical version does, plus the complete soundtrack on CD, sheet music of said soundtrack annotated by Toby Fox, and a gold-plated brass locket. You decide if you need all that.
The interesting thing about the Collector’s Edition is that there will be a PC version of it, marking the first time Undertale has been made available on physical disc for PC. All three options will hit stores August 15.
