Not too long ago, it was announced that Celeste will be getting some DLC. Director Matt Thorson shared some tidbits about what’s in store on Twitter.

Thorson confirmed that it’s “all one continuous chapter, no B-Side”. He added that the DLC is “after the current hardest levels in difficulty” and doesn’t feature any strawberries. Finally, new items/mechanics are planned.

The Celeste DLC will be entirely free. But unfortunately, it won’t be ready for the first anniversary on January 25.

Limited Run Games has opened pre-orders for the physical version of Celeste. Keeping in line with past traditions, two options are available: the standard release and a collector’s edition.

The collector’s edition includes:

Celeste has sold over 500,000 copies this year, director Matt Thorson has revealed. Although a breakdown of platforms was not provided, we do know that the game has sold very well on Switch.

Thorson and the rest of the team aren’t done with Celeste just yet. The game will be getting a few difficult “farewell” levels, which should arrive in early 2019.

Thorson has also teased, “we’ll be announcing what’s next for us in the new year as well.”


Matt Makes Games has unveiled a new feature for Celeste. Currently in beta on Itch and Steam, version brings about “Variants Mode”. It can be unlocked after completing all C-Sides, and creator Matt Thorson describes it as “kind of like anti-Assist Mode: a collection of options to make the game harder or weirder.”

Below are the patch notes for Celeste version

Celeste co-creator, programmer, and artist Noel Berry has indicated that a physical release is in the cards. In response to a petition created to generate interest in a boxed copy, Berry said that the team is “workin’ on it”. No further details were provided.

Matt Makes Games has several options on the table to make a physical version of Celeste happen. Limited Run Games is probably the biggest name out there, but we’ve also seen companies like Super Rare Games step in to produce physical versions of Switch titles.


Celeste is off to a very good start on Switch. The game has sold the most on Nintendo’s console, according to creator Matt Thorson.

Thorson told Destructoid in a new interview:

“The Switch version of Celeste has sold the most, and that’s what we were expecting. We feel like Celeste and the Switch are a perfect fit for each other. We are glad we launched on all consoles though, and we really appreciate the support we’ve seen across the board.”

Thorson hasn’t divulged any specific sales figures for Celeste. But as we’ve seen, it’s topping the Switch eShop charts.


Players have discovered a neat Super Mario Bros. 3 Easter egg hidden within Celeste. It’s a small one, but a nice homage nonetheless. We won’t spoil it here, though you can see it for yourself in the video below.
