Gone Home Arrives This Month For The Nintendo Switch

Gone Home is making its Nintendo console debut later this month, publisher Annapurna Interactive announced today, the game’s fifth birthday. A Nintendo Switch version of the game will head to the platform’s eShop next Thursday, Aug. 23.

A Wii U port of Fullbright’s (The Fullbright Company) debut project was planned back in 2014, but never materialized. Instead, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players were the first to receive Gone Home: Console Edition in early 2016.

Although it’s been a half decade since Gone Home launched, its influence continues to reverberate through the story-heavy adventure game genre. Gone Home was not the first experimental exploration game; similarly introspective titles, like The Chinese Room’s Dear Esther from 2012, predate it. But Gone Home’s combination of a defined aesthetic, a memorable setting and queer thematic content helped it stand out as more than a great game: It was revelatory.
