A physical version of My Friend Pedro is officially happening. GameStop has listed the product on its website, along with a November 12 release date. It can be pre-ordered here.

My Friend Pedro was first thought to be getting a physical release after it was featured on Special Reserve Games’ website last month. Interestingly, it will be available at major retailers, which didn’t originally appear to be the case. We’re not sure if the likes of Amazon and Best Buy will be carrying copies, but we at least know that it will be stocked at GameStop.

Special Reserve Games has offered physical copies of several Devolver Digital titles. In fact, the company even announced this week that it will be giving Hotline Miami Collection that same treatment on Switch. However, they won’t be stopping there.

Special Reserve Games recently updated its website, and it now includes a spot for My Friend Pedro. The title released on the eShop earlier this year, but a physical copy is currently unavailable. It looks like that’ll be changing in the future, though we’ll have to wait for further information.

Let me begin with a full disclosure: I have never used hallucinogenic drugs in my life, and after playing My Friend Pedro, I don’t think I’ll ever need to. It’s a game where you can take commands from a talking banana, explore the inner psyche of said banana, and slow down time to gun down your enemies with all the grace of a ballet dancer. This latest release from darling indie publisher Devolver Digital is unabashedly weird, violent, and, in its own strange way, beautiful. The experience may be over far too soon, but this potassium-packed shoot’em up still manages to create a truly appealing experience.

A bunch of footage is in showing off My Friend Pedro on Switch. Check out a half hour of gameplay below.
