No Man’s Sky Nintendo Switch launch date set for October

Hello Games brings its procedurally created spacefaring adventure to you No Man’s SkyThe developer revealed Thursday that the Nintendo Switch will be available on October 7, digitally as well as physically. Switch versions will come with in No Man’s Sky’s expansive universe and more than six years of updates as part of the package.

(The game’s new October release date is a teensy delay for No Man’s SkySwitch (previously expected to happen sometime in the summer.

Hello Games made six major updates over the last year. No Man’s Sky — Frontiers, Prisms, Expeditions, Companions, Outlaws, and Leviathan — that brought all-new gameplay mechanics and improved visuals to the game. In the trailer above and the gallery below, you can see the Switch version. This game was first released for Windows PC and PlayStation 4 back in 2016.

No Man’s Sky on this tiny portable device feels both completely natural and also totally improbable at the same time,” Hello Games’ founder and managing director Sean Murray said in a statement released Thursday. “This has been a real moonshot for our small team. No Man’s Sky is built around procedural generation, which means the console generates everything you see. This makes it so much harder to bring our game to something like the Switch, but I think this team never seems happier than when they are trying to do near-impossible things.”

Hello Games will also release a physical copy of the Switch version in addition to the Switch launch. No Man’s Sky for PlayStation 5 with “a remastered disc containing all 20 updates,” Murray said. This version will be available for purchase on October 7.

“This is the first time since the Beyond launch in 2019 that you could buy a copy of No Man’s Sky in the shops,” Murray added. “The box of that version boasted ‘Contains All 7 major updates.’ The fact that we are just about to hit our 20th free update is a reminder of how busy we’ve been in the last 3 years!”

Hello Games plans to also publish an update for PlayStation 5’s version No Man’s Sky to support Sony’s PlayStation VR2 headset when the next-generation virtual reality hardware launches.
