This is going to have a retail release... right?

15 posts in this topic

I seem to recall reading that this was going to have a retail disc release after the episodes are all out.  I'm super interested in the game, but I've been putting off getting it because I don't do digital if I don't have to.

 

Just double checking. :)

As far as I know, it hasn't been officially confirmed by Square, but Best Buy had a listing for a physical version on X1 and PS4 leaked. It's since been taken down, but it seems likely that it will be getting a retail release. However, like I said, it hasn't been officially confirmed, so there's no way of knowing for sure.

Hrm... that's what I was afraid of.  I swear I saw it mentioned in interviews and stuff before the first episode came out, but yeah, guess it probably wasn't anything official.  If I'm even remembering right.  Would love it if someone could prove us wrong. ;)

yeah, they said they were thinking about it, and had a poll on Facebook asking people if they wanted one, but they haven't confirmed anything yet. I'm betting that they're planning a retail release, but they think that if they announce it before finishing the series, it will cost them sales, since people will wait for the retail version, instead of buying each of the episodes digitally.

Considering it's Best Buy it's probably real. They leaked the Shovel Knight retail version as well as the PS4 version of Tales of Zestiria.

I think so too, but probably isn't yes.

Probably will have a physical release, like what was said before it was leaked by Best Buy listings and they almost always end up being true. It might be awhile though, maybe not until the end of the year.

Oh? Didn't know that. In that case, I'll definitely wait for the retail version.

I'm guessing nothing has been confirmed then yet, despite the last episode being available?

I think it is! There was an interview (in french so I'm hoping the source is good since I couldn't understand the video) with the CEO of Life is Strange here. Near the bottom it says:

 

 

"Later on he goes into more detail about the future of Life is Strange, mentioning a retail (disc based) copy of the game as well as a soundtrack"

 

So I'm hopeful!

Who the hell knows sometimes with developers these days. I'd advise you to get it in whichever format before it's too late because it's a great game.

Are we anticipating that it is going to disappear somewhere? Run out of digital downloads? :P
