The space exploration game No Man's Sky will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch, Hello Games has announced. The game first released in 2016.
According to the announcement, the game will be fully playable on Nintendo's latest handheld console and includes all the available content that has been released over last couple of years.
In No Man's Sky, players embark on a voyage across the galaxy to scavenge for resources, craft tools, and fight to survive in an infinite procedurally generated universe.
The release of the game for Nintendo Switch is noteworthy because the game's original release was surrounded by a significant amount of controversy due to missing content and features advertised before its release.
The game has received a number of updates over the past couple of years and much of that missing content was introduced - and will soon also be available on the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo currently states that only TV mode and handheld mode will be supported. A reason for not supporting tabletop mode was not given.
The Nintendo Switch version will run at a lower resolution than the next-gen version of the game, although the announcement does not mention specifics. The announcement trailer seems to indicate a 720P resolution running at 30 frames per second with dynamic resolution scaling.
No Man's Sky for the Nintendo Switch is expected to be released this summer.
