The Switch eShop expands later this month with the addition of Freedom Planet starting August 30. Have a look at some new direct-feed footage below.

XSEED Games hosted a live stream where members from the team played Freedom Planet on Switch for an hour. We have the entire recording below.

XSEED Games, Marvelous Europe, and GalaxyTrail have announced a release date for Freedom Planet on Switch. The title is just a few weeks away as it’s now set for August 30.

Here’s an overview, along with a trailer:

XSEED hosted a live stream on Friday, and showcased some of the direct-feed footage from Freedom Planet on Switch. The recording below has over an hour of footage.

Freedom Planet on Switch is official. After GalaxyTrail teased it early in the week, XSEED has announced a partnership with the studio that will involve a new eShop release this fall.

You may recall that Freedom Planet previously ended up on Wii U. The 2D platformer features fast-paced combat “that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces.”

Freedom Planet appears to be making its way to Switch. GalaxyTrail just posted a photo on Twitter, showing what looks to be the original game running in portable mode.

GalaxyTrail said at the start of the year that the team was looking into bringing Freedom Planet to Switch along with its sequel. Hopefully this is the first step towards that.

Freedom Planet landed on Wii U back in October 2015. Now after a significant period has passed, the game has received a notable update on Nintendo’s older console.

The new update is highlighted by the addition of Milla’s Adventure mode. She’s now available to play in Adventure mode with several new cut-scenes and an altered ending sequence.

GalaxyTrail tweeted out the news about the update earlier today:


Over the weekend, GalaxyTrail posted an image on Facebook hinting at a release of Freedom Planet on Switch. Some took that as confirmation that the game would be heading to Nintendo’s console at some point, but we’re not quite there… yet.

GalaxyTrail has now clarified that the image was a way of showing that the studio is aware of the huge amount of interest in Freedom Planet on Switch. The team is “currently exploring all of our options to offer you the game and the sequel on the Switch” – so there’s nothing official, yet.
