As one of the best games of 2019, Obsidian's The Outer Worlds
is finally ready to make its Nintendo Switch debut - on March 6. Announced alongside the PC and beefy console versions (compared to the Switch the PS4 and Xbox One are chunky) it was always the plan to release the Switch port sometime this year. Thankfully, it's sooner rather than later.
Weirdly we still haven't seen gameplay footage of the Switch version in action in order to compare the visual quality and performance with the PC and console releases. No doubt there will be noticeable differences, but if it runs great then RPG style of The Outer Worlds will make a great fit for the console.
As per our review
, "Obsidian’s latest role-playing game shares a direct relationship to Fallout, in part because it’s a project headed up by those that created the franchise back at Interplay in the 1990s. Visually and in terms of its interface and presentation, one could easily make the direct correlation between The Outer Worlds and modern-day Bethesda Fallout. From the first-person presentation, the dialogue system, FPS combat, terminals to hack and glean info from, and even the way you loot fallen enemies."
The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch will retail for $ 89.99 AUD with the physical version containing a download code. In other Outer Worlds news Obsidian is still planning to release story DLC for the game sometime this year.
