Owlboy, the critically acclaimed story-driven platformer from D-Pad Studio, will be getting a retail release, as announced by the game’s retail publisher SOEDESCO.
The Dutch publisher has picked up the rights to publish Owlboy physically, and SOEDESCO’s Marketing Manager Bas de Jong couldn’t be happier, saying:
“I’m very excited to finally announce our collaboration, it’s something we’ve had in the works for a while now. Today, a year after Owlboy’s release on Steam, we’re happy to finally share this news with the community, and we’re hoping everyone is just as excited as we are to bring this fantastic game to retail.”
There’s no mention of any specific platforms at this time, though we’d bet all of our precious PSN trophies that it’ll be on PS4. There’s also no word on a release date, though we imagine it’ll be coming out early next year. Still, we could be wrong. We’ll keep an ear to the ground and let you know when more has been announced.
