2017 wasn’t all doom and gloom. It brought us (or rather, game developers Infinite Fall brought us) the well-received, atmospheric, and story-rich game, Night In The Woods. Fans of the game, Nintendo Switch owners, and those who simply haven’t got round to playing it, will be pleased to hear that the game will be available for Nintendo Switch on February 1st.
The adventure-platformer game will cost $19.99 on Nintendo Switch.
Additionally, the Switch version of the game will include the new Weird Autumn edition (which was released December 13th for other platforms).
The Weird Autumn edition has been described as ‘a director’s cut’ of the original game.
Those who bought the standard version needn’t fret however, as they can download the Weird Autumn patch for free.
It was also announced on Twitter that the game will be released for mobile at some point in 2018.
