The surprise hit game Untitled Goose Game is getting a physical release this fall for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Along with the regular edition of the game, it is also receiving something called “The Lovely Edition”, which comes later in 2020 (after the initial physical release and sometime in Q3). The pre-orders for both the regular edition and “The Lovely Edition” are available starting today.
“The Lovely Edition” will only be available on PlayStation and Switch and will include a 24-page in-universe catalog that features items from the game, a foldout map, and a “No Goose” sticker like the ones villagers put up to keep the playable goose away. All of these items come in a 100% recyclable eco-friendly package that is exclusive to iam8bit (the game’s developers).

Pre-orders are also available today and start at $30 (with every proceeds for the production of the vinyl going towards the Carbon Fund donation.
Untitled Goose Game became a surprise hit with its 2019 release, selling over 1 million copies within the first three months. Its simple and eye-catching visuals had fans of every genre of the game coming to annoy villagers as a simple white goose. This stealthy puzzle-style game even managed to beat out big names such as Death Stranding for the Game of the Year at the Dice Awards.
