Oxenfree

The supernatural thriller Oxenfree first debuted in January 2016. Nearly two years later, Night School Studio came out with a Switch version.

Despite the late release on Nintendo’s console, Oxenfree ended up selling well there. Night School Studio co-founder Sean Krankel told MCV that the Switch version, along with iOS, “proved to be surprising success stories.”

Pre-orders are now open for the physical version of Oxenfree. You can reserve a copy on Limited Run Games’ website here.

Aside from Oxenfree on a cartridge, the release features foil cover artwork, a foil interior print, and a full-color manual.

Oxenfree has only been a digital download up until this point, but that will be changing soon. Night School Studio today announced a partnership with Limited Run Games that will give the title the physical treatment.

Pre-orders open next Friday, August 3. You’ll be able to reserve Oxenfree starting at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET / 3 PM in the UK / 4 PM in Europe.
