No Man’s Sky Switch Edition Launches This Fall

No Man’s Sky creator Hello Games has teamed up with Bandai Namco to bring its hit survival title to the Nintendo Switch. We knew from a Nintendo Direct that aired earlier this year the game was coming to the portable console before today’s announcement. However, the last mention of the project came with a summer release window, which has now been pushed back. No Man’s Sky will officially be coming to Switch in October, but vague release dates are the thing of the future. 

The game will be available for purchase in digital and physical formats worldwide from October. PlayStation 5 owners can also purchase a physical remastered version of the game on October 5, in addition to the launch of the Nintendo console. The remaster will come with all the previously released content included, which when tallied up means new-gen PlayStation owners will have access to 20 different updates in total.

Sean Murray, the founder of Hello Games observed these things after looking at the title’s history over time and the new jump to the Switch.

No Man’s Sky on this tiny portable device feels both completely natural and also totally improbable at the same time. It has been an amazing experience for the small team. No Man’s Sky is built around procedural generation, which means the console generates everything you see. It is so difficult to port our game to something similar to the Switch. However, I believe this team always seems happy when they try to accomplish near impossible things. 

PlayStation 5 will come with a physical copy of the PlayStation 5 game. It includes a disc with 20 new updates. 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. 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!

 No Man’s Sky’s Switch and PS5 remastered editions are set to release October 27, but you can also purchase a copy of the game on all major platforms.
