Firewatch is on its way to Nintendo Switch

Campo Santo’s award-winning adventure game Firewatch is being ported to the Nintendo Switch later this year.




Campo Santo’s Firewatch is being ported to the Nintendo Switch this year.

Developer Campo Santo made the announcement on its website:

“The year is 1989 and you’ve just taken a job deep in the Wyoming wilderness.


Alone for the summer with nothing to do but spot fires, your supervisor Delilah is always just a call away on your radio—and as you’re pulled out of the tower into the dense forest below, she’s your only contact with the world you’ve left behind.


Firewatch is an award-winning first-person narrative adventure available soon for your Nintendo Switch.


Imagine: The sounds of a babbling brook, a cool mountain breeze blowing through the timber. And in your hands, your trusty Nintendo Switch.


This Spring, take your Nintendo Switch on an outdoor adventure and experience the gripping mystery beloved by gamers and critics alike.”

They are not wrong: Tom loved it, saying, “With some moments of genuine sadness in amongst the charm and humour, Firewatch and its remarkable performances are incredible from start to finish.”


There’s also something about the Switch (stop me if you’ve heard this one) that seems perfect for Firewatch. Whether it be uncovering the mystery on the sofa, or aimlessly exploring the wilderness on the bus.

There is no fixed release date for the Switch version yet.
