Developer Frogwares has announced that The Sinking City on Nintendo Switch has an official release date: Thursday, September 12th.
The Nintendo Switch version of The Sinking City is currently a digital-only edition for now.
We initially wanted to do a physical release – we know lots of players prefer these – but we were eventually forced to put this off for now. We didn’t want to take too long to release the game on the Nintendo Switch, but going into the logistics and distribution of physical editions would push the release back by months. Frogwares is self-publishing this version but we’re not a big company and don’t have the resources to handle such a complex process ourselves. So, we’re focusing on the digital release first and might release a physical edition later. -Sergey Oganesyan, Communications Manager
Frogwares have included a selection of timed pre-order bonuses for the Nintendo Switch edition while also putting together a Deluxe Edition with additional side missions. The standard version will retail for $49.99 while the Deluxe Edition is set for $64.99.
As mentioned previously, The Sinking City on Nintendo Switch is not just a standard port. The team worked on multiple improvements and tweaks based on player feedback.
