Heaven’s Vault getting a physical release on Switch
Following a previous Switch eShop debut, Strictly Limited Games has announced a physical release of Heaven’s Vault. Along with a standard edition (or technically limited edition), a Special Limited Edition is planned.
The regular version simply comes with the game and a manual. With the Special Limited Edition, fans will be provided with a special box, the same manual, original soundtrack with previously unreleased bonus tracks, ten puzzle cards, timeline of the Nebula, notebook, bookmark, and four transparent stickers. They’ll be limited to 1,900 units and 900 units respectively.
Both editions can also be purchased as an exclusive bundle with the two official Heaven’s Vault novels by Jon Ingold, Inkle’s narrative director. There’ll only be 100 of these bundles on Switch.
Here’s some information about Heaven’s Vault:
Welcome to the Nebula: a strange network of moons linked by rivers in space, where ancient robots coexist with humans. Its ancient history has long been forgotten and only fragments remain, written in a lost hieroglyphic language. Join archaeologist Aliya Elasra and her robot sidekick Six on a trail of discoveries that will lead to the very edge of the world and to the ancient secret of Heaven’s Vault.
Ancient, the hieroglyphic language at the center of Heaven’s Vault, is a full language created for the game that consists of around 3,000 words. A language that an active fan community is continually discovering, discussing, and even expanding beyond the scope of the game. But it’s not only the language that makes Heaven’s Vault special. Progress through the game in any order you choose; the game’s fully adaptive narrative remembers every choice you make, every discovery, and every action you take, influencing what happens next. Meet a diverse cast of characters who remember everything you say, and whose attitudes toward you will change based on how you act. Who will you trust? What will you find? What will you risk? You will have to decide for yourself!
Find artifacts and translate their hieroglyphic inscriptions to piece together the history of the world.
Make tough decisions and interact with a large cast of characters who remember everything you say.
Sail Aliya’s ship, the Nightingale, through an open world of fast-flowing space rivers and lost moons.
Freely explore a variety of locations, from ruined palaces to desert moons, market towns, and farming villages.
Marvel at the unique art style, blending beautiful hand-drawn 2D art with 3D environments.
Play it again – Heaven’s Vault is highly replayable thanks to massively flexible choice-driven gameplay and translation puzzles that expand on every playthrough, revealing new secrets.
Pre-orders for the physical versions of Heaven’s Vault on Switch open on June 12 at 12 AM CEST (midnight). Strictly Limited Games will have everything here.
