ABZU for Nintendo Switch will Let You Tranquilly Explore the Seas on the Go
505 Games has announced that Giant Squid's ABZU will be hitting Nintendo Switch on November 28 for $19.99.
Giant Squid, a development team made up of several Journey developers, first released their tranquil underwater exploration game ABZU digitally for PC in August of 2016, though it came to consoles and released physically soon after. Today, over two years out from the game’s initial launch, publisher 505 Games announced that ABZU will be releasing on Nintendo Switch on November 28.
This version of the game will only cost $19.99, which is how ABZU is priced on other platforms. That being said, those who pre-order on Nintendo Switch will receive a 10% discount. The Switch port of ABZU will include all of the same content as the other versions of the game. This means nothing has been cut, but also signifies that their isn’t much new here outside of the added portability for those that already own the game.
Personally, while I already own ABZU on PC, I am strongly considering picking it up on Switch as well. ABZU is fairly short, but it’s now portable nature means it will now be one of those titles that’s great to play at night in bed with headphones on. Those of you who have played it can probably vouch for how mesmerizing the game can get, so being portable just means there are more situations where one can now experience it.
There is currently no word on if the game will release physically for Nintendo Switch; that being said, DualShockers has reached out to 505 Games and will update you if we get a response. If you want to get a better idea of what ABZU is all about, you can check out DualShockers’ review of the game and our interview with the developers from before the game’s launch.
