Originally announced way back in August 2017 for an early 2018 release, publisher Annapurna Interactive has confirmed via a tweet that the long awaited Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition is finally arriving on Switch on 28th January.
Containing all five episodes of the point-and-click adventure, the TV Edition was dependant on the completion of the fifth and final act. While it seems to have taken a little longer than anticipated, the wait is finally over and we'll soon have the chance to play the entire game through on Switch (and other consoles).
The console version includes all five Acts, plus the Interludes that developer Cardboard Computer released in between the main instalments. Combining elements of magical realism with striking visuals and writing, the game follows the journey of truck driver Conway was he travels Route Zero making a delivery and meeting strange folk along the way. The first two episodes released in relatively quick succession back in 2013, followed by another in 2014 and the fourth in 2016.
With Act V apparently concluding Conroy's adventure, it's been a long journey for fans who were there at the beginning, but the plaudits the game has collected along the way suggest the wait will be worth it on console. We'll be reviewing the game when it's finally ready, so keep an eye out for our verdict at the end of the month.
Have you played Kentucky Route Zero on PC at any point over the past 7 years? Let us know what we can look forward to and if you're planning on picking up the Switch version below.
Nice. I’ll restart this soon then.
Just waiting for the inevitable physical release from iam8bit.
Been waiting to hear anything about this. I have it for PC and can't wait to get it for Switch.
Words can't really describe how excited I am. I played the PC version over all these years and each episode left me more in love with the game than the last. It has been so long now, that I plan on getting the Switch version and starting over just to soak in the amazing atmosphere all over again. It's just such a beautiful, mysterious experience.
The first 2 episodes blew me away on the PC. So artistic and mysterious. But that was a lifetime ago for me. I don't think I could pick this weird thing up again after all this time. So, in limbo it will remain.
Common no more eShop ok...give us the options for Physical here.
That trailer or whatever that was is stupid.
Took em long enough lmao
I'll get this one for sure
Really liked the vibe of the first four parts
I have lots of scenes scrambled in my head, I still kinda remember what every character was looking for, but I'll will enjoy reseeing it from the beginning
I just got so excited! I hardly ever play on PC but this got me hooked to my controller, even if most of the time it was just sitting in my hands while I soaked in the atmosphere. This is a truly unique experience and I can't wait to relive it all again - this time to its surely bitter end!
Anyone know if there will be a physical edition?
