Hopoo Games today shared an updated roadmap for the console versions of Risk of Rain 2, including Switch.

The Scorched Acres, Skill 2.0, and Hidden Realms updates are all available. Artifacts 2.0 now has an actual release month of June. The final update in the roadmap, which had been scheduled for this summer, has now been pushed back to the fall.

We have a look at the roadmap above, which offers a breakdown of upcoming content.


Risk of Rain 2 has been updated on Switch, and is now at version 1.0.6. A pair of notable issues have been addressed as part of today’s patch.

Specifically, the following has now been fixed:

The next major update for Risk of Rain 2, known as “Hidden Realms” will land on Switch next month, Gearbox Publishing and Hopoo Games have announced. Look for it on March 24.

Here’s a rundown as to what players can expect based on when the update first hit Steam:

Astroneer has been rated for Switch by the ESRB, marking the second time we’ve seen a classification for the space sandbox adventure on Nintendo’s console. Back in September 2018, it was rated for Switch in Brazil.

We always need to stress that ratings aren’t necessarily confirmations of upcoming releases. However, they’re often signs that the companies involved are thinking about possibilities and are covering all of their bases. It’s possible that Astroneer could end up on Switch in the future, but we don’t have an official announcement at this time.

Here’s some information about Astroneer as well as a trailer:

Risk of Rain 2’s big Skills 2.0 update is officially live on Switch. There are plenty of new elements such as Loader as an additional Survivor, a new set of Survivor-specific Challenges that come with individual skills and skins, Siren’s Call, and further items and equipment. The Switch version also now supports local multiplayer.

Below are the official patch notes:

A big update will be appearing in the Switch version of Risk of Rain 2 next week, developer Hopoo Games and publisher Gearbox have announced. Skills 2.0, which features a “Loader” system, new content, and more, is slated for December 10.

Gearbox Publishing appears to be bringing Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour to Switch. That information is based on a new rating from the ESRB, which lists the classic shooter for Nintendo’s console.

Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour was previously rated in Australia. That classification, along with today’s ESRB rating, all but confirms an upcoming release on Nintendo’s console.

Here’s some information about Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour along with a trailer:
