Don't Starve adds a Switch release to the menu

To be served up next week.

Survival game Don’t Starve will release on Nintendo Switch next week, April 12.

Klei’s 2D, resource scavenging survival game has proven popular on all platforms since its original PC release in 2013, and will come bundled with the Reign of Giants DLC and Shipwrecked spin-off game.

Don’t Starve sees you run around a sketchbook world collecting food and resources to set campfires and build machines all to help you stave off creatures of the night and, crucially, starvation.

Don’t Starve’s often quite quick sessions make a good fit for the Switch, but we’re mostly hopefully that the co-operative sequel Don’t Starve Together will also come to Nintendo’s hybrid in time.

Don’t Starve releases on Nintendo Switch April 12.
