Given the fact that Outer Wilds’ Nintendo Switch version was announced back in February 2021, and that there have been no updates on it since then, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that the game was ever supposed to come to Nintendo’s platform. Developer Mobius Digital and publisher Annapurna Interactive certainly did not, however.
As recent leaks suggested, at the recent Indie World showcase, it was announced that Outer WIlds: Archaeologist Edition will be launching for the Nintendo Switch next month, on December 7. In addition to the acclaimed base game, the release will also include the (also acclaimed) Echoes of the Eye expansion, which launched in 2021. Pre-orders for the title are open on the Switch eShop, while a physical release has also been confirmed.
Outer Wilds is currently available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned for more details on its Switch port in the coming days.
