Is your Switch library missing a nice relaxing adventure game? Well you might be in luck. Firewatch, the 2016 first-person adventure game by Campo Santo, is on it’s way to the Nintendo Switch.

Although no release date has been given, Campo Santo stated on their blog that they are currently hard at work optimizing Firewatch for it’s Switch port.

“When will it be out? All we can say is “soon!” Reengineering the sprawling meadows and towering trees of Firewatch’s wilderness to play perfectly on new hardware is no small engineering task.”

It seems the team really doesn’t want this to be a sloppy port just slapped together for a quick cash grab. They’re taking their time and making sure it’s done right. In addition to the Switch port the blog post also suggest that the optimizations they’re making are being made to improve the game’s overall performance on all platforms so that assuming all goes as planned an update will be released for the PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, and XBox One as well.

For updates on the Switch version in particular you can check out the games official site for all things Switch related.
