On today’s Nindies Showcase, it was announced that Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on September 13.

Directed by the original Fallout’s Producer Brian Fargo, Wasteland 2 is the sequel to the Interplay Productions post-apocalyptic RPG originally released in 1988. The Switch version will bring the game’s tactical combat on-the-go with over 80 hours of content.

In Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, you will control your own squad of Desert Rangers, a sort of police force with the intention of helping survivors, as you explore the fallout zone. You’ll be able to customize rangers with their own attributes and looks as well.

The inXile Entertainment developed game also features a living world where your actions affect the world around you. The trailer mentions that you’ll be able to negotiate, intimidate, or just go in guns-blazing to complete a given scenario.

Wasteland 2 initially released back in 2014 for PC, Mac, and Linux with Deep Silver as the publisher. The Director’s Cut launched a year after and added the PS4 and the Xbox One to its list of platforms.
