Brian Fargo, the founder of inXile Entertainment, revealed a couple months ago that his company had become an approved Nintendo Switch developer. Today, he teased what seems to be their first project for Nintendo’s console/handheld hybrid: Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut.

The tweet doesn’t show much, only the game’s initial menu screen, but it is still nice to get confirmation that a game like Wasteland 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch, as there is not much else like it on the system. For those of you who don’t know, Wasteland 2 is a turn-based RPG and a sequel to 1988’s Wasteland. 

The game initially released on PC, Mac, and Linux on September 19, 2014, but Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, which included enhanced visuals, expanded voice-overs, redesigned encounters, and a few other small gameplay tweaks, released on the aforementioned platforms alongside PS4 and Xbox One in October of 2015.

Last year, the developers successfully crowdfunded Wasteland 3, which is set to release on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, and Xbox One in late 2019. There is currently no word on whether or not that game will be receiving a Nintendo Switch release.
