Multiplayer sci-fi sandbox adventure game Astroneer is headed to the Nintendo Switch early next year, confirmed developer System Era Softworks in a new dev blog. The Switch launch is scheduled for January 13th with pre-orders now available on the Nintendo Online Store with a $29.99 price tag.
“For early purchasers, we are including a special EXO Outfitters bundle! The Power bundle includes a palette and visor customization set, unlockable in-game on day one. The bundle will be redeemable for all early purchasers till February 28th, 2021.”
The studio will also be releasing a physical version of the game although the studio says that it will be delayed to sometime in mid-February due to the global semiconductor shortage that has been plaguing the electronics industry since last year.

Embark on a narrative focused mission all over the solar system to discover the secrets behind these curious cephalopods.
