505 Games will release a retail version of Abzu for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in January 2017 for $19.99, the publisher announced.

Abzu first launched digitally for PlayStation 4 and PC in August. This will be the first time it is available on Xbox One.

The retail version of Abzu includes an exclusive dynamic theme on PlayStation 4 and exclusive backgrounds on Xbox One.

Here is a brief overview of the game, via 505 Games:

Abzu is an epic descent into the depths of the sea where players explore the mystery and wonder of the ocean, while the distinct art style blends beautifully rendered ocean environments alongside a deeply emotional narrative. As ‘the Diver,’ players will uncover their true connection to the ocean, as the world around them begins to unlock its secrets. Fluid swimming controls allows the Diver to interact with lush kelp forests; thousands of fish and hidden worlds, which await her on her quest.
