The retail edition is being co-published together with Maximum Games and is already available for pre-order at select retailers, with more rolling out soon. The retail Deluxe Edition is listed with a $39.99 SRP.

More information about the expansion DLC, including digital pricing, will be revealed later.

“Ever since we started working on this game, we have always felt it would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch,” said Haraldur Thormundsson, CEO of The Bearded Ladies. ”The game lends itself really well to the Switch controls and the pacing of the tactical turn-based combat is perfect for an on-the-go, handheld console. We are also excited for the opportunity to tell another Mutant Year Zero Story with the new expansion DLC, and we look forward to talking more about that soon.”

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden combines XCOM-like tactical, turn-based combat with real-time stealth and exploration of a post-human Earth. It is developed by The Bearded Ladies, a team made up of former HITMAN and PAYDAY developers among others. The game has received several “Best of Show” awards at both E3 and Gamescom. Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is currently available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The Nintendo Switch version will launch on June 25th, 2019.
