Following the release of Journey to the Savage Planet earlier this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, we now have a release date for the Nintendo Switch port — today!
A physical version is also coming down the pipeline, with Amazon showing a June 30 release. We don’t know at this time if that date will stand, or if the surprise eShop release today will mean that date will be changing soon as well.
Below you can check out the launch trailer:
For those who aren’t already familiar with this title, here is an official description from the game’s website:
Welcome to the Pioneer Program! As the newest recruit of Kindred Aerospace – the 4th best interstellar space exploration company – your job is to determine if the planet Ary-26 is fit for humans. You may be short on equipment and experience, but good luck!
Your mission includes:
Play with a friend – play solo or online with a friend. If you have one.
Explore and catalog the flora and fauna. From strange spherical birds to hallucinogenic plants to ‘festering alien orifices.’ Try not to die.
No expense spared – You get some cool tools for free, like a laser pistol, rocket booster pack, and ‘probe’, but if you need something you have a slick 3D printer that can turn space trash into sweet items.
Are you alone? – Bonus mysteries! Complete your survey of the planet to find out. You’ll know you’re on the road to completion when you’ve heard the words ‘cucumber sh*twater’ and found the ‘festering butthole’.
Onward to adventure!
