As we reported back in June, Clockwork Aquario is a canceled 1992 arcade platformer from Westone Bit Entertainment being revived and completed with the assistance of publishers ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games. Now, physical versions of Clockwork Aquario are finally about to go up for preorder worldwide at the Strictly Limited Games website. PR pegs the start date as Nov. 29, though a countdown clock at the website indicates the preorders will open in less than 23 hours and 30 minutes as of the time of this writing. In any case, a Limited Edition (the regular game), Collector’s Edition, and Ultra Collector’s Edition will be available for both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, and there will be the option to buy a 2-disc vinyl soundtrack LP on its own as well.
The standard Clockwork Aquario Limited Edition will cost €29.99 (about $35.88 USD). The Collector’s Edition will cost €69.99 (about $83.74 USD) and contains the following huge amount of extra physical stuff:
- Clockwork Aquario game for Nintendo Switch
- Collector’s box with magnetic latch
- Hardcover Artbook
- Acrylic Diorama
- Original Soundtrack
- Remix Soundtrack
- Arcade Coin
- Character Cards
- Large Reversible Poster
- Arcade Sticker
- Arcade Flyer
Meanwhile, the Ultra Collector’s Edition will cost €129.99 (about $155.53 USD), include all of the above, and also add a figurine, pin, shikishi, and certificate of authenticity. That figurine looks really nice too, if you’re into that sort of thing. It all looks pretty awesome, frankly, as you can see below.
Are you aiming to get a Clockwork Aquario physical version? The Collector’s Edition will be limited to 2500 copies worldwide on Nintendo Switch (1300 for PlayStation 4), while the Ultra Collector’s Edition will be limited to 999 copies on Nintendo Switch (499 on PlayStation 4). It is expected to ship in May or June.
