Unravel, the eminently adorable puzzle-platformer from Swedish studio Coldwood Interactive, is set to be released Feb. 9 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, publisher Electronic Arts announced today.

"Since I first unveiled Unravel on stage at E3, I don't think there's any question I've gotten more than 'when is it coming out?'" said Martin Sahlin, creative director on Unravel, in a post on the game's website. "Well, that’s not true — people usually ask if they can take a picture with Yarny first, but after that, they ask about the release date. So today, I'm excited to finally answer the first question."

Along with the release date announcement, Coldwood put together a new story trailer for Unravel. The trailer features 1080p, 60-frames-per-second gameplay footage of Yarny, our fuzzy hero, navigating the treacherous environments of northern Scandinavia. Yarny is on a cute and (hopefully) heartwarming quest to "reconnect the bonds of love," according to EA — Unravel tells the story of a woman who has lost her family, as we noted in our October preview.

Unravel will cost $19.99, and will be available early — and at a 10 percent discount — on Xbox One to EA Access subscribers. PlayStation Store and Origin customers can pre-order the game now.

Update: Unravel pre-orders are now also available on the Xbox Games Store.
