Developer Obsidian Entertainment has at last revealed the Nintendo Switch release date for its first-person RPG adventure The Outer Worlds: March 6th, 2020.

The game will launch on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $59.99, with a physical version coming at the same time; the physical version, however, will not include a game cartridge, but instead will have a download code in the box.



The Outer Worlds originally launched on October 25th, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with a launch for Nintendo Switch announced for a TBA “2020” date.

Now, Nintendo Switch owners finally know when they can boot up Obsidian and Private Division’s latest sci-fi action outing on their consoles.

The Outer Worlds takes place in a timeline in which megacorporations have spread to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, terraforming and establishing colonies on alien planets.

“Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later than you expected only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony,” the official site describes the game. “As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter a host of factions all vying for power, who you decide to become will determine the fate of everyone in Halcyon. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.”

Those tickled by the idea of a space-faring escapade on their Switch can check out the trailer below.
