The screenshots mark the first time Obsidian’s RPG, which released for other platforms in October 2019, has been seen on Switch.
The Nintendo version will release on March 6 and is being ported by Virtuous, which also brought Dark Souls Remastered and Starlink to the platform.
The game will cost $59.99 / €59.99 / £49.99 / AU$ 89.99 and will be available as a digital download only (although a boxed version containing a download code will also be released).
In an interview published in September 2019, the game’s narrative designer Megan Starks said The Outer Worlds is looking “really exciting” on Nintendo Switch.
“Matt [Singh, producer], who was in the announcement trailer, is a huge Nintendo fan: it was the highlight of his life to work on that deal.”
She added: “I think fans will enjoy it. I know people were really excited about some of the other large titles that came out for Switch, so I think people will really enjoy it. It’s going to be a great game for long commutes.”
Obsidian plans to release story DLC for The Outer Worlds in 2020.
And Microsoft, which acquired Obsidian in November 2018, has said it hopes to build The Outer Worlds into an “enduring franchise”.
