The one that was highly praised by both critics and fans Outer Wilds will be released for Nintendo Switch. The science fiction adventure was already available for PlayStation, Xbox and PCs. In summer it will also be playable on mobile devices, as Annapurna Interactive announced as part of Nintendo Direct.
In Outer Wilds, players take on the role of the youngest member of Outer Wilds Ventures. The space program is looking for answers in a constantly changing solar system. You are heading for planets that change over time and you are exploring the remnants of cultures there. Can you stop the never-ending time warp?
Direct also had that to offer
And what else was going on at Nintendo Direct? A whole lot. The 35th anniversary of the Zelda series was rang in early with the announcement of an HD remaster of “Skyward Sword” and the expansion pass for Hyrule Warriors: Time of Devastation. A younger, but also very successful Nintendo series is entering its third round: In Splatoon 3 you will splash your way through Splatsville in 2022.
And then there is Project Triangle Strategy, which combines Final Fantasy Tactics with the great HD2D optics from Octopath Traveler. Mario is drawn back to the golf course while Travis Touchdown finally got an appointment for his third outing. In addition, a new, old mana adventure awaits us (in this country) and the next Smash character is also known.
