Chucklefish and Robotality have worked hard to ensure that physical Switch collectors get a treat when they open up the Adventurers Field Guide. Lots of effort has gone into making the full colour manual as awesome as possible, filled to the brim with strategic gameplay info, special tips and extra nuggets directly from the dev team at Robotality.
Pre-orders will go live on the Limited Run Games website this Friday (October 8th) at 3pm BST / 4pm CEST / 10am EDT / 7am PDT. As the name suggests, the boxed copy will be available for a limited time only.
In a joint statement, the Pathway and Chucklefish teams said: “Having the opportunity to make a *real* physical copy of Pathway that you can actually hold in your hands is a dream come true for both our teams at Chucklefish and Robotality, and it wouldn’t have been possible without all of the requests and comments from our lovely community – so thank YOU for supporting the game! You’re awesome.”
