The Outer Worlds will make its way to the Nintendo Switch on March 6th
The Outer Worlds was one of the better 'choose your own adventure' RPGs of 2019. Set in a post-apocalyptic universe where a handful of corporations controlled entire galaxies, the game took digs at a host of current-day issues. Thanks to its multiple endings and forks in the story, you can even squeeze multiple playthroughs out of it.
It was well-received among fans and critics alike and available on all major platforms including PC, PS4, and Xbox. The game's developers Private Division promised a Nintendo Switch port last year, and now, they just Tweeted that the game will be available on the console starting March 6th.
The Outer Worlds will cost $59.99 and will be available on Nintendo Switch as a digital download only, much to the dismay of several Switch owners. There is still going to be a physical release, but it's little more than a piece of plastic with a download code printed on it.
A physical cartridge would have been ideal, but it looks like we're headed towards a digital-only dystopia where your games are at the mercy of publishers. It is kind of ironic, considering that it is the exact future The Outer Worlds is set in.
Citizens of Halcyon! We are proud to announce that we're extending the universe of #TheOuterWorlds to Nintendo Switch on March 6th.— Private Division (@PrivateDivision) January 30, 2020
