Yonder: The Cloud Catcher is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch. The game was previously leaked by Amazon Germany but the publishers behind the game have confirmed its existence on the platform. Here’s all the details:
Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, the open-world adventure from the former Activision producer and Rocksteady veterans at Prideful Sloth where players explore the vibrant but troubled island of Gemea, is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch. A new feature-packed photo mode allowing you to share beautiful images of the world with your friends also debuts on the Switch.
Gemea is a land filled with natural delights. The luscious forests, quiet shores, and frozen peaks are home to adorable creatures such as Fabbits and Squombles. These wild wonders beckon to those with a penchant for exploration. When a curious dark miasma floods the flora and fauna, it’s up to your hero to discover the origin of the strange substance. Create your own hero or heroine and embark on your journey of self-discovery across the gorgeous island and aid the people in need of your assistance.
Your hero quickly befriends the locals and discovers magical sprites that can dispel the dark energy known as Murk that plagues Gemea. Try your hand at farming, crafting, cooking, brewing, and fishing to create a sustainable lifestyle and help the people of the land.
Yonder’s story is spread across eight distinct biomes, each with its own day/night and weather cycles, hidden sprites, unique animals to befriend, and quests to accomplish, all at the player’s pace. There’s always something to discover behind every corner. Relax and unwind with Yonder on the Nintendo Switch – at home on the couch, on the bus, or from the comfort of your bed with a nice hot cup of tea!
“The beauty of Yonder is in its calming pace and relaxing gameplay. You’re free to explore the open world however you choose; it’s a beautiful, safe, inviting world,” said Cheryl Vance, co-founder and director at Prideful Sloth. “The Nintendo Switch lends itself to leisurely, comfortable play. It’s a great home for the unique experiences that Yonder provides.”
Yonder will be available digitally for $29.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop, and will be available via physical retail for $39.99.
