PSYCHONAUTS 2: THE MOTHERLOBE EDITION COMING SOON
iam8bit and Skybound Games, together with publisher Xbox Game Studios and developer Double Fine Productions, are psyched to reveal the physical retail edition of the critically acclaimed psychedelic platformer Psychonauts 2 is now available for pre-order. The Psychonauts 2: The Motherlobe Edition will be available for Xbox Series X/Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on 27th September 2022 for $99.95.
"I'm very excited about this release because, "Welcome to My Mind," has been stuck in my head since the game came out last year," said Tim Schafer, Founder, Double Fine Productions. "I'm hoping that releasing this song into the world (along with the previously-unreleased art and the rest of the soundtrack) will also release it from my mind so I can think about other things."
The Psychonauts 2 physical edition for Xbox Series X/Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is an imaginative experience for collectors and gifters. The retail editions come in a lenticular outer sleeve with a reversible cover sheet and will feature a set of six two-sided art cards showcasing final art and concept art from the game, six premium die-cut stickers along with a digital download code granting access to unreleased behind the scenes materials.
Hailed as the most imaginative platformer that money can buy, Psychonauts 2 took home numerous Game of the Year awards, including “Xbox Game of the Year” at the Golden Joystick Awards ‘21, and multiple category nominations at The Game Awards, DICE and BAFTA Game Awards. The sequel has modernized the cerebral elements of the first game that have fans coming back for even more content.
Psychonauts 2 funnels its strange landscape through the lens of a 10-year-old dreamer with psychic abilities, allowing fans to experience dark, panic-inducing dangers with the empathetic naivety of a child. Though fans themselves have waited over 15 years for the sequel to Psychonauts, only a few days have passed for our aspiring Psychonaut, Raz. Instead of a full-fledged Psychonaut, Second Head of the Psychonauts Hollis Forsythe plops an ‘Intern’ tag on Raz’s chest, setting off a new adventure with wacky characters, mental worlds to explore, and sinister happenings to fix behind-the-scenes.
