Here is what’s inside each edition:

- Deluxe six-piece wooden standee made from responsibly sourced birch and cherry wood.
- Wooden lapel pin.
- 14-page Junimo comic by Chihiro Sakaida.

If you can get in a preorder before August 15 you’ll also be eligible for a special double-sided poster. The game itself won’t actually become available until November 6, but act quickly if you want a preorder, as Fangamer has limited quantities:
We might sell out of the first run we make but if that’s the case we’d be working on restocking it

As the above Tweet notes, Fangamer will restock eventually if it sells through this batch. It should also be noted that the standard edition of Stardew Valley will be available at Best Buy and GameStop in the US if you’d like to weigh your options.
