AOne Games just recently released a new trailer for their upcoming horror-themed fighter Omen of Sorrow. While the trailer mostly covers a bit of gameplay and features, it also announces something that some people might not have expected from an indie fighter — a physical release!

That’s right, Omen of Sorrow is getting a physical release on PlayStation 4 thanks to Soedesco. Additionally, it seems that this isn’t just a limited collector’s release, unlike many other physical releases of indie games.

While indie games tend to be released purely in digital form, the dedicated player bases these attract can often justify the investment in a physical release. Prior to this, Lab Zero Games’s Skullgirls also got a limited run physical release on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, thanks to Limited Run Games.

The rest of the trailer below covers the game’s other features — including its 12-character base roster, and its GGPO-based online netcode.

Omen of Sorrow is set to release on PlayStation 4 sometime later this year.
