Nintendo Switch will be getting a bit of turn-based action once Mutant Year Zero launches on 25 June 2019. The new trailer revealed that the game will arrive at the same time as physical retail copies for all platforms along with new DLC.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden has enjoyed critical success across the mainstream platforms it released on so far. Metacritic scores are between 76 and 80, depending on the platform of choice, and user score hovering in about the same area. Meanwhile, 84 per cent Steam users recommended the game, so the picture should be rather clear - the game is good but not perfect.

The Bearded Ladies and Funcom have now announced that they will look to complete the platform collection as Mutant Year Zero will release on Nintendo Switch on 25 June 2019. It will apparently not be a second-grade port either as the title will arrive alongside the Expansion DLC which is set to be released on all other platforms on the same day.

To top it off, Mutant Year Zero will arrive to the literal store shelves on that day with the physical release for all consoles, but the PC players will have to sit this one out if they wanted boxed content. On the other hand, this is not really surprising since PC players prefer digital downloads, which is made obvious every week with the sales charts that account only for physical sales - they are not selling on PC nearly as well as on consoles.

Mutant Year Zero also has a Digital Deluxe edition on PC which offers more goodies for the fans such as a wallpaper, digital soundtrack, digital artbook and digital pen and paper Mutant Year Zero RPG book.

If you happen to be on the fence whether to buy Mutant Year Zero or not, think of it as turn-based Fallout with mutants instead of regular people in your squad. A more important distinction is probably that Mutant Year Zero has prettier graphics but is hard-pressed to match the brilliant immersive RPG elements in the early Fallout titles.
