The Outer Worlds Nintendo Switch Release Date Revealed

Known for giving RPG fans the beloved likes of Fallout: New Vegas, developer Obsidian Entertainment wowed gamers with last year’s release of The Outer Worlds. The space-faring adventure is packed with a massive array of content and lovable atmosphere, with even more set to be on the way. However, the meantime is presenting another worthwhile expansion as the previously-confirmed The Outer Worlds Nintendo Switch port has now finally secured a release date (H/T Prima Games).

Revealed in a new Obsidian forum post, The Outer Worlds was confirmed to be coming to Switch on March 6th. The release will go for $59.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop as well as a physical boxed version containing a download code. “Whether you choose to zap foes with your shrink ray or charm them with smooth-talking abilities, we know you will make The Board proud,’ the post read. “And the fact that you will be able to complete your tasks anywhere you go with the Nintendo Switch is something that makes The Board happy.”

This long-touted The Outer Worlds Switch port is surely an anticipated entry for the hybrid system, especially considering the Obsidian’s previously-stated enthusiasm regarding the on-the-go console. While it’s somewhat disappointing that the physical release won’t include an actual Nintendo Switch cartridge, it’s still amazing to see the game’s quality world and hero-villain choice system becoming playable on the platform. As more details about the port are teased for the month before release, fans won’t have long before seeing exactly how The Outer Worlds will feature on the Nintendo system.

The Outer Worlds is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
