Snail Games open world, voxel-based sandbox survival game PixARK arrives on Switch today in physical and digital formats. Take a look at the game’s launch trailer below.


We recently reported that PixARK was likely to launch on May 31. The game had been added to the eShop, revealing the apparent release date.

Snail Games has now come forward confirming the news officially. You’ll be able to play the voxel-based sandbox survival title starting May 31, and it will be sold both physically and digitally.


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.

Solutions 2 GO has announced a pair of physical releases for Switch. ARK: Survival Evolved and PixARK will both be offered at retail.

ARK: Survival Evolved will cost $49.99 while PixARK is priced at $39.99. The two games arrive this fall.

Here’s more information about them:

Snail Games has posted a series of “Explorers Guide” videos for PixARK that show off the title in a bit more detail. We have the full set below.

PixARK, an open world voxel-based sandbox survival game, is in development for Switch. Snail Games announced a release for later in 2018 on Nintendo’s console today.

PixARK is apparently set in the same world as ARK: Survival Evolved. The game features single-player and online multiplayer modes, procedurally generated worlds, a Creative Mode that allows players to construct whatever they can imagine, and more.
