Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, the lauded story-driven role-playing game about being a total failure of a detective, has finally gotten itself a Switch release date: Oct. 12.
A physical version of the game for the Switch will be available in early 2022. Pre-orders for the digital version begin today.
During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut got the release date announcement after months of anticipation, showing some footage of the game’s shabby hero of a detective and the mystery he stumbles through in the world of Elysium.
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut has been out for a while on consoles after making the leap away from PC exclusivity, having dropped on PS4, PS5, and Stadia back in March. It’s allegedly coming to Xbox as well, but we still don’t have a date on that.
We gave Disco Elysium a 9.6 in our initial review of the game, having loved its sharp writing, memorable characters, and its embrace of old-school, pen-and-paper RPGs. We deemed it the best PC exclusive of 2019, and it’s since been so celebrated as to get a TV adaptation in the works from the same producer as the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.
