No Man's Sky, Hello Games' ambitious space epic, has finally secured a release date for the Switch. The good news is you won't be waiting too long either, as it will be landing both physically and digitally on October 7th, 2022.

Originally debuting on the PS4 back in 2016, the game was met with decidedly mixed reception thanks to a number of shortcomings and some bold promises from the developer that failed to come to fruition. In the years since, however, its overall standing has been given a major boost thanks to multiple expansions and improvements.

It looks like those expansions will also be making their way to the Switch version too, including Foundation, Pathfinder, Companions, and more. This is great news of course, though it's a given that the game won't be playable in VR, since the Switch doesn't possess such capabilities outside the rather limited Labo VR. Oh well.

Take a look at that box art, though!
