Indies from across the industry have been making Nintendo Switch's ever-growing eShop their home since the console launched last March, but one award-winning title has been keeping us waiting for a good 10 months now. Well, the wait is finally over as the charming, brilliant and poignantly melancholy Night In The Woods has been officially confirmed for Nintendo Switch... on 1st February no less!

That really is incredibly soon, and while the quick announcement has caught us off guard we're sure this indie hit is going to fit right at home. It's an adventure game full of anthropomorphic characters to interact with, puzzles to solve and a mystery at the heart of its charming tale. Think Life Is Strange meets a Wes Anderson film and you're probably only just scratching the surface. Better yet, the game will include the game's director's cut style Weird Autumn content (which adds in some more mini-games and sequences to explore).

At the moment, it only appears to be hitting the North American eShop, with a price of $19.99. We've reached out for clarification on a European release date and we'll update you when we know more.

Nintendo Switch is about to add another big indie hit to its roster, but will you be picking it up next month? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below...
