Don't Starve will be out on Nintendo Switch next week Thursday, 12 April 2018.

The announcement comes after Klei Entertainment responded to a question on Twitter in January, saying that it was looking into porting its game to the Switch.

"Not certain, but investigating what's possible," twote Klei. "Lots going on right now, but we're looking in to Switch just in general."

Don't Starve: Nintendo Switch Edition will feature the original game, along with the Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked downloadable content packs. It will sell for $19.99 on the Nintendo eShop.

No South African pricing has been revealed yet.
