Sold Out

Last year, a parntership between Team17 and Sold Out was announced. As part of the collaboration, a trio of Switch titles were planned for retail: Overcooked, Yoku’s Island Express, and Worms W.M.D.

Unfortunately, Team17 is no longer be pursuing a physical version of Worms W.M.D. A reason for this was not provided.

Overcooked and Yoku’s Island Express should be unaffected. In fact, Overcooked comes to retail on Switch next week.

Amazon has posted the boxart for Yoku’s Island Express, which will indeed have a physical release. We’ve attached it above. You can now pre-order Yoku’s Island Express on both Amazon and GameStop.

We should also mention that Overcooked: Special Edition, another game published by Team17, opened pre-orders this week on Amazon as well. It’s possible to reserve it here.

The physical version of Overcooked: Special Edition has a release date. Team17 has announced that it’s currently slated for February 13 in North America and Europe (including the UK).

Two other Team17 games will also be sold physically on Switch. Worms W.M.D and Yoku’s Island Express will be offered at retail next year.

Team17 announced a new partnership with Sold Out last week. The two sides are working together to bring Overcooked, Worms W.M.D., and Yoku’s Island Express to retail on Switch.

GaamesIndustry spoke with Sold Out CEO Garry Williams following the news. In his view, the notion that third-party games struggle to sell on Nintendo platforms is a bit of an exaggeration.
