Developer Klei has announced a Don’t Starve Switch release date, meaning you can dive into this tough survival game with a buddy in just a few weeks. Set to come to Switch on April 12, 2022, the game was originally planned as an expansion to 2013’s Don’t Starve, but eventually became a standalone game.

It’s surprising how long it’s taken to get a Don’t Starve Together Switch release date. While the game originally came out in 2016, its predecessor made its way to the Nintendo Switch quite quickly, launching in 2018. For a console built for multiplayer experiences, it’s wonderful that we’re finally getting it ported over.

The developer has been on a bit of a hot streak recently, releasing Griftlands last year and Hot Lava two years prior to that, both to a decent reception.
