Following its initial PC and PS4 release, Heaven’s Vault is now coming to Nintendo Switch – and we just got a release date.

The open-world narrative game is coming to Nintendo Switch on January 28, 2021. The game features “a massive branching storyline and an entire ancient language to decipher,” according to developer Inkle.

Inkle says that you’ll “join Aliya and her robot sidekick, Six, to sail in search of lost sites, explore ancient ruins, and translate inscriptions that could unlock the secrets of the Nebula’s past and provide the key to its future.”

This new version of Heaven’s Vault is designed with the Nintendo Switch in mind. It includes both Joy-Con and touch-screen controls. It will retail for $17.99 on the Nintendo eShop.
