Disco Elysium - The Final Cut releasing on Nintendo Switch October 12

During Nintendo's September 2021 Direct, developer ZA/UM finally announced that Switch version of Disco Elysium - The Final Cut will launch on October 12, priced at $39.99. This award-winning RPG was announced for Switch during the 2020 Game Awards. This version offers new quests, full voice acting, controller support, and more to further polish what many considered to be one of the best RPGs of the last few years.

We've certainly found Disco Elysium to be a masterpiece. Both Adam and George reviewed it, on the original PC release and the PlayStation version of The Final Cut respectively, and each adored it.

For those not sure what Disco Elysium is about, ZA/UM describes the game as such:

Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is the definitive edition of the ground-breaking, multi award-winning open world role playing game with an insane amount of choice and consequence. You’re a detective with a unique skill system at your disposal and a whole city block to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murder cases, or take bribes. Become the hero, prophet, madman, the greatest detective the world has ever seen… or an absolute disaster of a human being. The Final Cut brings the residents of Revachol to vibrant life with the inclusion of one million professionally voice acted words by actors from all over the world, as well as adding brand new political vision quests. Explore unseen areas, encounter an expanded cast of memorable citizens, and leave an even bigger mark on the world, all with ‘quality of life’ gameplay enhancements and added replayability.

However, the highly anticipated Switch port seems to be going the extra mile, according to their press release:

This is not a port but a painstaking re-assembly of the critically acclaimed game for the detective on the go, including a redesigned user interface experience for portable gaming, font scaling options, improved legibility across the board and all quality-of-life enhancements from previous iterations. This definitive edition of the multi award-winning smash hit RPG is now available to pre-order via the Nintendo eShop for £34.99 UK / $39.99 USD / €39.99 EUR.

For those big spenders out there, a physical collector's edition is available through iam8bit here.

Disco Elysium - The Final Cut hits Nintendo Switch on October 12, and while there has been no date confirmation yet, the Xbox releases shouldn't be too far away.
