Developer Klei Entertainment has announced that its enormously popular gothic survival adventure Don't Starve will be launching on Switch next week, April 12th.
Don't Starve: Nintendo Switch Edition, as the Nintendo Switch edition of Don't Starve is imaginatively called, bundles together the base game and all single-player expansions released so far. The co-op focussed Don't Starve Together, which was released separately to the core game, is not included.
Don't Starve's original survival experience sees players taking control of intrepid gentleman scientist Wilson - and numerous other eccentric characters - to explore, scavenge, build, stay fed, stave off madness, and escape the game's delightfully macabre wilderness world.
The Nintendo Switch Edition also includes Don't Starve's first major expansion, Reign of Giants - which introduces new characters, seasons, biomes, and creatures - as well as the more recent Shipwrecked expansion. This gives the base game's survival template a bit of a nautical twist, setting players loose on the ocean, exploring islands and fighting off mythical sea beasts.
Don't Starve will cost £17.99/$19.99 USD when it releases on Switch eShop next Thursday.
