That’s why they’re doing something they’ve never done before. For the first time ever in company history, Super Rare has pushed the stock of this release up to 10k units.
Pre-orders for A Short Hike, which includes two versionsm will open on Aug. 25th, 2022, so mark your calendars! If you want to get more info on each version, you can read details below.
