Journey to the Savage Planet is out now on the Switch eShop. A physical version will begin to launch around late June.

Plenty of speculation has surfaced about a Switch version of Journey to the Savage Planet after the game was spotted at multiple retailers. Publisher 505 Games finally made the news official today, and has announced that the initial launch is actually taking place today.

Journey to the Savage Planet will be out worldwide on the eShop with the exception of Russia, where the release is planned for May 28. A physical version will be offered on June 25 / June 26, “with availability in the Americas in the days following as supply chain allows.”

Here’s a bit of information about Journey to the Savage Planet, along with a trailer:

Numerous ratings have popped up in several locations in the last few months, but finally we have a cover art found on popular retailer Play-Asia. You can see the listing for the game here. It is also worth noting that a US ship date of June 30th of this year is attached to the listing, but whether that is a concrete window or simply a placeholder remains to be seen. You can see the overview and trailer for the game in some of our previous coverage.

A Switch rating for Journey to the Savage Planet has popped up a couple of times now. The first instance came about a few months ago in Brazil, and there was another classification for Nintendo’s console just last week from the ESRB. Typhoon Studios creative director Alex Hutchinson has now given an official update regarding potential Switch plans.

During a recent episode of the Game Informer Show, the possibility of couch co-op was brought up. That prompted Hutchinson to say, “If we could ever get a Switch version together, I think it would be brilliant to have the two people next to each other, so we’re looking into it.” Then when asked about Switch specifically, he added that they’re “still figuring out how to handle it”, and the team would likely work with an outside company on the Switch port due to a lack of experience with the hardware.

A Switch rating for Journey to the Savage Planet first popped up in Brazil back in October. Another classification has now appeared, this time from the ESRB. The Switch version was rated alongside other platforms.

Note that ratings don’t always confirm upcoming plans. However, it’s at least a sign that publisher 505 Games and developer Typhoon Studios are thinking about the possibility.
