As you've been told countless times, the North American release of Sam & Max: Season 1
by Dreamcatcher is slated for August 28th. According to Adventure Gamers
, however, Dreamcatcher/TAC/JoWood has begun shipping the game to retailers today. This may or may not bump up the originally reported release date, which is now listed everywhere as August 7th. The European releases will follow in September, with confirmed
targets Germany, UK, France, Italy, and Spain.
Remember, this version of Sam & Max is a different beast from what Telltale is offering to season customers. The extras indigenous to the retail counterpart include a foldout poster (I believe featuring this art
) a new behind-the-scenes video, and some character bios. Start checking stores next week for this baby.
