The Astronauts have announced that their critically acclaimed game, Vanishing of Ethan Carter is coming to Nintendo Switch. The game is coming to Switch on August 15th.
In a press release, The Astronauts co-founder Adrian Chmielarz says, “It’s always exciting to do something for the first time, so we can’t wait to hear from the players. Switch is a completely different platform from the previous Nintendo consoles and it seems to get along well with The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Never before has touring Red Creek Valley under a blanket been so comfortable. And unsettling.
Moving to Unreal Engine’s new version was a challenge and many parts of the codes were written from the scratch, but it was worth it. Nice thing about Unreal Engine 4 is how it can scale, so the engine works great on Nintendo Switch.”
The game came out on PC in September 2014, and for the PS4 and Xbox One in July 2015 and October 2018 respectively.
