Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, from developers Prideful Sloth, has finally landed on Nintendo Switch. The release comes after months of anticipation. However, the game is currently only available digitally on the platform. A physical release is planned for June 12. You can check out a trailer for the release above.
The game has also gotten a photo mode. The Switch-exclusive photo mode will help you capture precious moments and share them with your friends. Cheryl Vance, co-founder and director at Prideful Sloth, spoke about releasing the game on Switch, saying:
“Despite that pesky Murk, Gemea is a land of warmth and tranquility. We want players to enjoy getting their hands dirty by living off the land from the comfort of their couch.”
Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles‘ story should be one that fans are already familiar with. However, it does come with some new caveats. As a young, customizable heroine or hero destined for greatness, your journey begins humbly enough as you set sail on the open waters. One surprise storm and shipwreck later you find yourself on the island known as Gemea.
The only way to truly dispel Murk is to discover magical sprites hidden throughout the land. Assisting the townsfolk by working the land and providing food for them unveils the sprites’ locations. Once the Murk has been dispelled more of Gemea becomes accessible. Eight beautiful biomes from peaceful plains to frozen valleys with day, night, and weather cycles brim with secrets and even adorable animals to befriend.
When it was released on PC, Yonder was praised for its visuals, side quests, characters, and gameplay. The Switch version shouldn’t be any different. Right now, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is only available for Nintendo Switch digitally. However, it will be released physically for the franchise on June 12.
