Get ready to experience a weird autumn on the go: Night in the Woods has a switch port scheduled for release next month.

Revealed on January 16 through a listing on the Nintendo eShop, the port has since received a new trailer. The version will include all of the game’s original content as well as the new content added in the recently released director’s cut update Weird Autumn. Priced at $19.99, the game will be available through the Nintendo eShop on February 1.

Come Home, On The Go

This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for ways to play the game. Need to kill time when your ride doesn’t show? Guide Mae home from her own transportation miscommunication. Want to delve into your own town’s spooky happenings? Take your switch with you and share its clever writing with the deranged cultists and ethereal beings!

In all seriousness though, there’s no two ways about it: Night in the Woods was one of the best games of 2017, indie or otherwise. The game has received widespread praise from critics and fans alike, lauded for its grounded characters, creative art design and stellar music. In addition to making many publications’ short lists of best games of the year, it is currently nominated in three categories of the 2018 Independent Game Festival awards, including Excellence in Narrative, Excellence in Visual Art and the Seumas McNally Grand Prize.

If you haven’t had the chance to play it yet, or are looking for a new way to experience the gripping story one more time, you can’t go wrong with this port.
