Update: Because I’m a clot with three brain cells, the original headline stated it was Pixel Ripped 1995 getting a physical release. Unfortunately, it’s not, it’s actually Pixel Ripped 1989, which is still great news!
Original press release:
Brazilian developer and publisher ARVORE and British Retail Publisher Perp Games are proud to announce that award-winning VR retro adventure Pixel Ripped 1989 will receive an extremely limited Pink Cassette Physical Edition on August 25th for PlayStation VR owners.
With only 1,500 copies the Pink Cassette Edition Pre-Orders are now open and will be exclusively available to purchase on the Perp Games Store.
As well as the Pink Cassette Edition, Perp Games are also happy to announce that they will be selling a standard physical edition of Pixel Ripped 1989 on PlayStation VR. This standard edition will be exclusive to the Perp Games Store, is not limited, and will be available for as long as there is demand.
The Pixel Ripped 1989 Pink Cassette Edition will cost £29.99 and the Pixel Ripped 1989 Physical Edition will cost £19.89 (Yes! Really!)
This edition is something special for fans of Pixel Ripped 1989, but it will be limited to only 1,500 copies. Once they’re gone, they’re gone for good! The Pink Cassette Edition contains the long sought after PlayStation VR physical edition of Pixel Ripped 1989, but it will be presented in an authentic, 1980s style game box.
Also included in the box is a limited edition retro pink cassette USB drive, which is packed with digital goodies, like the official soundtrack for Pixel Ripped 1989, wallpaper and exclusive art. There will even be a limited edition set of 3 postcards, signed by the Game Director, Ana Ribeiro.
Pixel Ripped 1989 is an award-winning, multidimensional homage to retro gaming and is a highly original take on the 8-bit generation only possible through the power of Virtual Reality.
Of the announcement, Mickey Torode at Perp Games says ‘This is an incredibly exciting milestone for the Perp Games Store. We know fans have been eager to learn more about our plans for Pixel Ripped 1989 and the Pink Cassette Edition is something we can’t wait to share with you when it releases August 25th!’
