Psychonauts 2 getting fancy physical release in September

Psychonauts 2, one of the best games of 2021, will be getting a physical release in September courtesy of Skybound Games. The Motherlobe Edition will include a bunch of extras, both physical and digital.

Skybound Games has confirmed that Psychonauts 2: Motherlobe Edition will launch for Xbox Series X and Xbox One via a dual-version disc release on September 27th, and has detailed all the extra goodies that come with the physical edition of the popular platformer in a new reveal trailer.

The retail edition of Psychonauts 2 comes in a fancy lenticular outer sleeve, beneath which hides a reversible cover. The physical edition of the game also comes with a set of double-sided art cards depicting both the concept and final versions of some of the game’s psychedelic artwork, six character stickers, and a digital download code for a bunch of previously unreleased behind-the- scenes material. Motherlobe Edition will be available through iam8bit, although the link in the trailer currently leads to an unfinished page, so you might want to keep an eye on the main page for now if you want to get your hands on a copy. Interestingly, though, the Collections page on the iam8bit site does feature a Collector’s Edition that isn’t mentioned in the trailer, which also includes an Xbox One disc version of the original Psychonauts (exclusive to this edition), several posters, more stickers, a set of five pins, a full digital soundtrack, and more.

Psychonauts 2 was one of the standout games of last year, reaching the semi-finals of our user-voted game of the year bracket only to bely beaten by Forza Horizon 5, while I picked it up as my AAA GOTY in our 2021 Team Picks round-up after awarding it a well-deserved 9/10 in our review of Double Fine’s wonderfully creative platform adventure.
