The release information was confirmed yesterday out of the official WayForward and publisher XSEED Games Twitter accounts. The date comes after months of development updates on the title, including the reveal of the physical edition of the previously exclusive digital version.
As detailed in the Twitter post, on top of all previous DLC, the physical edition will come packaged with the Risky Beats OST and a 100-page artbook. Because of all these extra goodies, this version will cost $39.99 MSRP instead of $29.99 MSRP for a digital copy.
