inXile Entertainment has announced a confirmed Switch release date for its upcoming post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 2: Director's Cut. The game will be available on Nintendo's portable platform on 13th September.
Wasteland 2: Director's Cut is, perhaps unsurprisingly, an enhanced version of Wasteland 2 which has been available on PS4 and Xbox One since 2015. It comes from the producer of the original Fallout, and features a whole host of improvements and additions to the original game that are said to "further immerse the player" in its post-nuclear offerings.
The Director's Cut has received 'very positive' reviews from players on Steam, with its graphical overhaul, the addition of perks and quirks for squad customisation, all-new tactical attacks, and its 8,000 new lines of in-game voice over dialogue bringing the game to life more than ever before. Brian Fargo, CEO of inXile Entertainment, has spoken of the game's journey to Switch:
“When I first showed a screenshot of Wasteland 2 running on the Nintendo Switch, it erupted into one of the largest social media reactions I have ever seen. RPG fans are looking for new ways to experience old favourites, and Nintendo fans are looking for big, meaningful RPG experiences they can play anywhere they go. The game received a huge reaction last week at gamescom, and it feels great to be this close to getting the game in fans’ hands.”
