The Outer Worlds blasts onto Nintendo Switch in March

Star attraction.

We've finally got a date for when The Outer Worlds will touch down on Nintendo Switch. It'll arrive on Friday, 6th March.

This version of Obsidian Entertainment's sci-fi role-player comes via established port house Virtuous. It'll cost £50/$60/€60, either via the eShop or as a boxed version containing a download code.

The Outer Worlds (not to be confused with indie darling The Outer Wilds) originally launched for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last October. (It's also available on Xbox Game Pass, if that's a tad more commercially acceptable to your wallet.)

At the time, Edwin Evans-Thirlwell labelled it as "RPG comfort food that never stretches the imagination" in Eurogamer's The Outer Worlds review.
