Disco Elysium gets an October release date for Nintendo Switch

The critically acclaimed title from ZA/UM finally wakes up from its hangover and makes it over to the Switch.


Disco Elysium was one of the best games to release in 2019 and remains one of the greatest RPGs to hit PC. With a PlayStation release already in the wild, it was only a matter of time before the game made its way to Nintendo's console-handheld hybrid. As luck would have it, Nintendo announced that Disco Elysium is slated for an October launch on Nintendo Switch.

During the September 23 Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that Disco Elysium – The Final Cut would be arriving on Nintendo Switch on October 12 via the online store. Players that would prefer a physical edition of the game will need to wait until early 2022 to get their hands on a copy.

The Final Cut version of Disco Elysium includes all the previous updates that have released for the game on PC. This edition has been expanded with full voiceover work for each line of dialogue, new political-based side quests, as well as other settings and features.

To say I’m a fan of Disco Elysium would be an understatement. In my review of Disco Elysium, I summarized the experience thus, “It’s not very often that a game of this calibre comes along. Disco Elysium is mad with psychedelic energy, unabashedly dramatic, and dangerously well-written. I wish, like the detective, I could forget all about Disco Elysium, if only to experience it again as if for the first time. It’s truly one of the greatest RPGs ever released.”

There’s plenty to love about Disco Elysium, so it’s exciting to see it finally make its way to the Nintendo Switch this year. Be sure to keep it locked to Shacknews as we bring you the latest on the title, including any potential impressions we have of the Switch version.
