The Outer World's will be released on the Nintendo Switch on March 6th 2020. It will retail for $59.99 and will only be available in digital format. Physical copies of the game will just be a piece of plastic with a download code on it.

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.
