Psychonauts 2 Collector’s Edition Features “Lots” Of Cut Content

A recent Screen Rant interview has revealed the upcoming Psychonauts 2 Collector’s Edition will feature a host of behind-the-scenes information and new insight into the creation of the game. Released over a decade after the original, the long-awaited sequel to Psychonauts was met with massive praise from both critics and fans. A year after the sequel’s release, an upcoming Collector’s Edition contains even more for players to enjoy.

Psychonauts 2 is a direct sequel to the original that follows returning protagonist Raz on a host of new adventures. The story begins with Raz joining the Psychonauts Intern Program, launching a narrative that includes the same beloved style of mind exploration, psychic abilities, and off-the-wall characters as the original. Of course, the sequel adds many new features from the original, including new characters, environments, and powers alongside its updated aesthetic. Psychonauts 2 fixes the original game’s biggest problem as well, enabling players to continue playing after the main story has been completed.


In a recent interview with Screen Rant, developer Double Fine’s Director of Communications and Marketing James Spafford and iam8bit’s Director of Product and Retail Anna Bihari discussed the collaboration between the two companies to create a special Psychonauts 2 Collector’s Edition. The Collector’s Edition, which is available for preorder on the iam8bit website and set to release Q4 2022, will feature a myriad of fun collectibles for fans, from stickers and posters to physical copies of both Psychonauts titles and access to special behind-the-scenes information about the game’s development. Spafford elaborated that fans will have access to a lot of details about cut content, stating:

So, I hope people find a lot of stuff in there that we cut from the game because we just didn’t have time to make them. There’s lots of different things like that; various powers and plot points that didn’t quite work out, but they all inform what the game became in the end, so they all connect somewhere.

The Psychonauts 2 Collector’s Edition Features Stickers, Posters, & More

Although there are things for players to do in Psychonauts 2 after beating the game, many fans likely want to get more out of their Psychonauts 2 experience, particularly those who have been waiting all these years for a sequel. For long-time fans of the series, learning about the development of such a beloved follow-up is a real treat, as they can see the game’s evolution from beginning concepts to its final product. The prospect of learning about powers and plot points that were cut is especially exciting – it almost feels like a secret being shared between developers and fans.

While Collector’s Editions of games aren’t necessarily for everyone, for fans who enjoy having something physical to display based on what they love this edition of Psychonauts 2 is perfect. Players can learn about how Psychonauts 2‘s amazing final powers and levels came to be and likely come to appreciate the game on a whole new level. All in all, there’s plenty to look forward to when this Collector’s Edition releases.
