ThatGameCompany Creative Director Jenova Chen has confirmed today that Journey Collector's Edition Blu-ray will be coming to stores on August 28th, 2012 with details below.
To quote: Journey, ThatGameCompany's most recent and largest project to date, represents three years of intense collaboration and growth for our small studio.
As such, in conjunction with Santa Monica Studio, it is an honor to announce the Journey Collector's Edition, launching for the PS3. This is our first disc-based release, and will be available at retail outlets across North America for just $29.99 on August 28.
From the simplicity of flOw, to the beauty of Flower, to the awe of Journey, this special Blu-Ray bundle features ThatGameCompany's three award-winning PlayStation Network-exclusive titles, paired with exclusive new content and previously released digital content.
The complete set of bonus flOw, Flower, and Journey content includes:
• Thirty-minute behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of Journey
• Creator Commentary playthroughs of all three games
• Three exclusive mini-games from thatgamecompany
• Concept art and screenshot galleries for all three games
• Original soundtracks for all three games
• PS3 dynamic themes and wallpapers
• PSN avatars including eight exclusive new Journey avatars never released before
• Official game trailers and developer diary videos
• Reversible cover art
We are particularly excited about the Creator Commentary play-throughs of all three games, because we get to share with fans insights about flOw, Flower and Journey straight from the minds of the designers, artists, engineers and composers who worked together to make these games so special.
Another really great treat for fans featured on the disc are the three exclusive mini-games. These were born out of a tradition we have here at thatgamecompany: the 24hr Game Jam.
As the name implies, each of these games was created start to finish in just 24 hours. For the first time ever, thatgamecompany's mini-games Gravediggers, Duke War!!, and Nostril Shot, will be available to play outside of our studio.
We share these extra treats as a "thank you" to our players for supporting us over the years. In case the names didn't already give it away, these mini-games showcase thatgamecompany's lighter side with screwball competitive multiplayer action. We hope you sincerely enjoy their silliness as much as we have.
Please enjoy the official trailer for Journey Collector's Edition, which highlights what's in store for fans when thatgamecompany's first Blu-ray disc release hits stores on August 28.
