Originally released on the Sega Dreamcast back in 2013, Sturmwind EX has since seen a digital release on the Switch eShop – and now, thanks to publisher Pix’n Love, it’s getting a physical version that comes with loads of goodies.
The limited edition – of which only 2000 copies will be made – comes in a special ‘steelbook’ case and includes an art book, lithographs and a numbered certificate. It costs 59.90 € / $59.85 | £43.08. A ‘standard’ version is also on offer, and that costs 34.90 € / $41.87 / £30.13.
Both versions will be available to order direct from the publisher.
