Publisher Big Sugar and developer Steel Mantis have revealed that the release date for Valfaris has been firmly locked down. You'll be able to get your hands on it on Nintendo Switch from 10th October.

Switch owners will actually be receiving the game first - alongside PC players - with the PS4 and Xbox One versions coming the month after. A brand new trailer has been released to celebrate the announcement (which you can check out for yourself above).

A Digital Deluxe Edition is also headed to PS4 and PC, and while there doesn't seem to be any mention of this making its way to Switch, Nintendo fans can instead treat themselves to a physical edition copy if they prefer. Merge Games revealed plans to release the game physically for the console earlier this year, with an expected November release window being the goal.
