As you can see, in addition to the confirmed release date we also get a look at the Nintendo Switch box art for The Outer Worlds that’ll ship to retailers. This here is what many are noticing as the box art is labelled with “Full Game Download, Game Card Not Included”
It’s odd to see a retailer title not include a physical game, though this isn’t new to Switch Owners as a few other titles have shipped as digital only, due to the platform storage cards only supporting 32GB in size. There have been reports that the company (Nintendo) is working on a solution to offer bigger storage up to 64GB, though plans for the bump in storage has yet to be revealed.
The Outer Worlds is a moderately sized game (compared to many others,) weighing in at approximately 40GB on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it’s likely the studio isn’t planning on cutting a whole lot of data away with porting it to the Switch.
The Outer Worlds launches on the Nintendo Switch March 6th and is currently available on the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
