One of the many titles coming to the Nintendo Switch next month is the ambitious space epic No Man's Sky.

The release of the game lines up with the 4.0 update, and if you're wondering what else might be included, it seems the Switch version is "the focus" of this next game update. Hello Games' founder Sean Murray clarified this in a series of tweets:

"No Man's Sky Switch is releasing on Oct 7th - that's really soon. Switch is our next big release and marks the moment No Man's Sky ticks over to version 4.0. Switch is a real labour of love for us, and the whole team is fully focused on delivering that technical mini miracle

"2022 has already been one of our most busy years to date with Outlaws, Steam Deck, Sentinels, Switch, Mac OS, Leviathan, expeditions + more. The focus of 4.0 is our Switch release, an opportunity to introduce a new group of players into our welcoming community. More will follow"

When the game does launch on Switch, Nintendo players will be able to experience the new Endurance update - adding a whole new level of customisation to the game - from a freighter overhaul to interactive crew members.

About the only thing Switch players will miss out on is multiplayer, with the official game website mentioning how the No Man's Sky Switch Edition would be a single-player experience at launch.
