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.

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:

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.
