The news came out of developer WayForward’s Twitter account, which tweeted the following:



A release of the game on Nintendo Switch was announced in early July alongside physical editions from Limited Run Games.

Those interested in owning a physical copy of Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut for Switch can still pre-order the game from Limited Run Games until October 11th; the publisher is selling both a standard and collector’s edition.
