I remember back when this first came out, I was largely avoiding let's plays and spoilers in anticipation of a console release. A friend who's rather obsessed with the game insisted it was impossible to release on console, and I should just break down and get Steam for it. I opted to wait- I figured something this popular would find a way.
So, my main thought is: HA! I WIN!
My second thought is, that's kind of a snazzy Collector's Edition- I do love it when it's small, nonstandard trinkets instead of DLC or T-shirts or big statues I can't store.
Congrats on the win! I'm pretty much on the line of Collector's Edition or not myself.
The game is very hard to avoid spoilers at this point because so many people are like "DO NOT CHECK INTO SPOILERS!" but then you happen upon them because there's an overflow of fan stuff.
I'm one who has never played Undertale, not really sure about it in the end. I like a dumpy styled RPG like that, but when I see the combat in pictures online it confuses the hell out of me if I'd personally enjoy that or not so I've never scooped it up. It's a good thing it gets a physical release, seems deserving of it. Fangamer tends to be a bit less abusive than LRG with print runs on stuff like this so hopefully it works out in the end for all of them.
I should just ruin the first 30min of the game for myself sometime and watch a gameplay video to see if I'd like how it handles or not. I've had it wishlisted on GoG for a time and it's cracking the 50% off ceiling now too.
Completely agree about the LRG thing. They have gotten so many titles, and you basically can't get anything unless you are within the 15 minutes of release. That or it's not the game you wanted.
The battles are a mixture of RPG for the menu, but the actual gameplay is hard to explain... It varies throughout the game, but it's mostly akin to "bullet hell" shmup when the battle is active.
It's a very short game overall. You can sit down and beat it in a long afternoon. (I want to say like.. 2-4 hours max offhand?)
