The Nintendo Switch is about to receive another massively popular critical and commercial hit.
Nintendo's plucky little console is due to see Firewatch launch on the platform soon – a game that came out to rapturous praise on Xbox One and PS4 back in 2016.
The game was initially announced for Nintendo Switch back in April earlier this year.
But more recently, Jake Rodkin – a member of staff at Firewatch development studio Campo Santo – confirmed the Nintendo Switch port of the game is very close to release when a curious fan asked about when we can expect the game on the Nintendo platform.
"I'm sorry…the switch version??? It's available???" asked one inquisitive Twitter user.
To which Rodkin simply responded: "It's very close!'.
Firewatch is a mystery game that takes place in 1989, set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio.
The story follows a fire lookout named Henry in the Shoshone National Forest, a year after the Yellowstone fires of 1988. A month after his first day at work, strange things begin happening to him and his supervisor Delilah, which connects to a conspired mystery that happened years ago.
Through exploration of the surrounding area, Henry uncovers clues about mysterious occurrences in the vicinity that are related to the ransacking of his tower while out on a routine patrol and a shadowy figure that occasionally appears watching him from afar.
The game was critically acclaimed and a commercial success – and we imagine it's only going to get more popular when it launches on Nintendo Switch.
