Grounded Announced for Nintendo Switch, Launches April 16

Obsidian Entertainment and Microsoft’s acclaimed survival game is set to make its way to the Nintendo Switch.

Last week, Microsoft announced that it was set to bring four of its first-party Xbox exclusives to rival platforms, and promptly afterward, leaks claimed that one of those games was set to be Grounded, Obsidian Entertainment’s acclaimed survival title. Many have expected an imminent announcement, and sure enough, that announcement came at Nintendo’s recent Partner Direct.

Grounded is set to release for the Nintendo Switch in less than two months’ time. An announcement trailer showcases the game in action on the platform, offering a brief lowdown of its crafting, building, and survival mechanics. Presumably, the game will launch on Switch with all of the updates that have been released for it up to this point, while the trailer also confirms that cross-platform multiplayer will be supported.

Grounded is set to launch for Nintendo Switch on April 16. It is currently available on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
