We’re well past double-dipping at this point
You might love Stardew Valley enough to own multiple copies of the game, but what about a physical copy? It’s a frequent request, and the time has come. Creator Eric Barone partnered with Fangamer for a Collector’s Edition release of Stardew Valley on Nintendo Switch and PC. It is, in a word, adorable.
I’m really pleased to announce a physical version of Stardew Valley for Switch & PC! This is in collaboration with @Fangamer and there is both a standard edition and a collector’s edition w/ bonus goodies. Pre-orders are now available: https://t.co/u0Cp2PAyms pic.twitter.com/VbqK7Koylh

In the latter case, the extra money goes toward a collector’s box, a wooden animal standee, a wooden lapel pin, a 14-page Junimo comic, a cleaning cloth (my favorite piece), and a literal deed to your farm.
As for which version of the game is included, “physical copies of Stardew Valley for Switch and PC (as a DRM-free disc with Steam key) contain Version 1.4, with free updates available for download as they’re released.” We’re waiting on update 1.5, which doesn’t have a time frame, but it’s “coming along steadily.”
Fangamer is currently taking pre-orders ahead of an expected ship date of November 6, 2020.
