PixARK seems to finally be heading to Switch on May 31
PixARK was announced for Switch over a year ago, but we’ve had little news about the game since. After a physical version was confirmed last June, that was about it.
Following the silence, we may have a release date. The North American eShop just added in a listing for the game and has it down for May 31. It was revealed last week that the Japanese launch is set for July 4, so that certainly sounds plausible.
Here’s an overview of PixARK, along with a trailer:
Welcome to PixARK, a vast, wild world filled with vicious dinosaurs, magical creatures and endless adventure! To survive in this mysterious land, you must tame creatures both ferocious and cuddly, craft high tech and magical tools, and build your own base out of cubes.
With a robust character creator, an infinite number of voxel based maps and procedurally generated quests, your PixARK adventure will be completely unique. Team up with friends to form a tribe, or play on your own. Spend your time building a towering fortress or go on a quest in a sprawling cavern. Fly on the back of a dragon and smite your enemies with a magic wand, or ride a mighty T-Rex and blast your foes with a rocket launcher. In the world of PixARK, how you play is up to you – as long as you survive!
– Over 100 creatures to tame, train and ride
– Voxel block building system
– Procedurally generated maps
– Procedurally generated quests
– Creative Mode, where you can build anything you can imagine
– Extensive character creation tools, and character progression systems with skill trees and customizable stats
PixARK will cost $39.99 on the Switch eShop. As previously mentioned, a physical version is also planned.
