Outer Worlds gets June Switch release date and confirmation of physical cartridge
Nintendo version was delayed due to COVID-19
The Outer Worlds will release for Nintendo Switch on June 5, publisher Private Division has confirmed.
In an update published on Tuesday, it was also confirmed that the physical version of the RPG will ship on a physical cartridge, and it will be accompanied by a day one patch that could be up to 6GB.
The patch will “optimise gameplay, provide additional hi-res textures, and include other fixes to provide the employees of Halcyon with the best gameplay experience,” according to the game’s publisher.
The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch will retail for EUR 59.99 / GBP 49.99 / AUD 89.99 digitally and physically. It’s being ported by Virtuous, which also brought Dark Souls Remastered and Starlink to the platform.
Obsidian’s RPG previously released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC and is also available via Xbox Game Pass for console and PC.
The Nintendo version was previously due to release on March 6 and ship physically with a digital download code in a box.
In a statement published last month, Private Division said it was delaying Outer Worlds on Switch due to the COVID-19 virus impacting the game’s development team.
