The Outer Worlds announced for Nintendo Switch

The Outer Worlds announced for Nintendo Switch

Platforms: Nintendo Switch | Sony PlayStation 4 | Microsoft Xbox One | PC

Nintendo has today announced that highly-anticipated sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and will release after the game launches on other platforms.

Check out the announcement trailer below, which doesn't appear to feature any footage from the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

The Outer Worlds is so anticipated because of the pedigree of its developer, Obsidian Entertainment, who were responsible for many players favourite Fallout title, Fallout: New Vegas.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game will be handled by Virtuos Games, the team behind the Switch releases of the L.A. Noire remaster, Dark Souls Remastered, Final FantasyX/X-2 HD Remaster, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas. Virtuos were also responsible for the Batman: Return To Arkham collection, and many other very successful and highly regarded remasters and ports. There is often scepticism surrounding big budget, triple-A games being ported to the less powerful Nintendo Switch, but Virtuos appear to be one of the best in the business at getting the most out of the console, so we're optimistic about The Outer Worlds.

There was no date given for The Outer Worlds on Nintendo Switch, only that it would release after the game launches on other platforms.

The Outer Worlds will hit PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25th, 2019.
