As oprainfall’s self proclaimed indie fanatic, I take pride in finding and sharing unique indie experiences. Sometimes I get to do so thanks to a review key, and sometimes I just buy the game myself. The latter was the case when I reviewed Dandara a while back. I had seen a trailer for the game, and the unique aesthetic just hooked me instantly. I had no prior knowledge of Long Hat House or their game library, but I like to think I know quality when I see it. And Dandara proved to be a great indie, full of deep lore, beautiful art and absolutely unique gameplay. It was a Metroidvania like few I’ve ever enjoyed.

Well, that’s all in the past. But the future is bright, thanks to Super Rare Games! Next week they’re bringing Dandara to physical formats for Nintendo Switch. Better yet, they’re bringing the updated build of Dandara, the Trials of Fear Edition. What, you want more? Okay. There’s gonna be two editions of the great indie Metroidvania. You can certainly get the very attractive standard edition, which will have 4000 copies printed. But if you’re a truly hardcore collector, you might prefer the Dandara: Trials of Fear Collector’s Edition. It’s limited to 1000 copies and will feature a massive guidebook, set of playing cards, music CDs, pendant and more! Obviously there’s a big price difference between the two editions, but either way you’re getting a great game in an ideal format.

If you’re a collector, there’s no better way to own a game than physically. Be sure to check out Super Rare Games next week for Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition, and let us know the coolest physical editions you own!
