It sounds like the Nintendo Switch version of Starlink: Battle for Atlas is in safe hands, with the news Ubisoft Toronto and Virtuos “collaborated closely” for this particular release of the game. In case you were wondering, Virtuos is the developer behind the Switch iterations of Dark Souls: Remastered and L.A. Noire

According to Ubisoft, the partnership with Virtuos has raised the overall quality of Starlink: Battle for Atlas to new heights on Nintendo's latest device, enabling the game to support handheld, tabletop and docked play. 

In related news, online listings for the game have revealed a download of 15GB via a wireless connection will be required in order to play, even if you own a physical copy. So if you're planning on picking this one up on release, now might be a good time to increase the storage capacity of your Switch. 

Starlink: Battle for Atlas arrives on 16th October. Let us know in the comments if you're excited about this upcoming release.
