Soedseco has revealed that Truck Driver is set to receive both physical and digital launches on Nintendo Switch, and it'll come with some very welcome extras over its rival-platform counterparts.

For those not in the know, Truck Driver has players exploring an open world by truck after inheriting one from your father - your in-game father, that is. You're tasked with honouring your father by making it as a successful truck driver, making a name for yourself and earning the respect of the local community.

The game's been receiving a number of updates on other platforms since launching last year, all of which will make it over to the new Switch release. You'll also get to enjoy some new, Switch-specific features including gyro controls and HD Rumble support. Here's some more info to tell you what it's all about:

Truck Driver offers a unique trucking experience with a wide range of cargo and interesting characters to work with. For the Nintendo Switch version, Truck Driver supports solo horizontal grip and tilt controls. The game also gets HD Rumble support, which allows for subtle and fast-changing vibrations that will increase the gaming experience.

Since the game released on PS4 and Xbox One in September last year, TruckDriver received a new photo mode, rain effects on windshields, wipers, and several updates that improve the overall player experience of the game. Currently, Truck Driver is getting a Unity engine upgrade, which will result in smoother frame rates, less stutters and an overall improvement in graphics with better shades and textures. Further improving the game will continue to be a priority for SOEDESCO and development studio Kokku. All the updates will be implemented into the Nintendo Switch version as well, which makes it a great addition to all trucker fans out there who’d like to be a truck driver on the road

- Enjoy a trucking experience focused on your career as a truck driver
