The Outer Worlds already has a date on Nintendo Switch; will not include physical card
Nintendo Switch will not run out of its ration of The Outer Worlds, the role title developed by Obsidian Entertainment, a studio that now belongs to Xbox Game Studios. They already warned him: he would be ready before April 2020, but a more specific date had not yet been set. However, Private Division, the publisher of this RPG, has confirmed that it will hit stores next March 6.
Although it will be available on the Nintendo eShop at a price of 59.99 euros, it will also be sold in physical version. Of course, the company has acknowledged that the boxed edition will not come on card, but instead a code will be provided that must be exchanged to download the product. Something similar to the case of Overwatch, which was published on Nintendo Switch without any physical cartridge.
With regard to adaptation, Obsidian Entertainment did not have them all with it that could be done. The co-director of the video game, Leonard Boyarsky, commented in an interview with US Gamers that Virtous, the port managers, convinced them to push forward with the project. “We weren’t sure what could be done,” he acknowledges in the interview. “But then they started coming with all those Nintendo Switch games and we thought: ‘Wow, it’s great.’ Shortly after, they were shown a prototype and gave the green light to realize the conversion.
