Did Outer Wilds get announced for Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo did feature Outer Worlds in a Direct back in February 2021 – you know, the one with Splatoon 3’s announcement in it – but there hasn’t been much going on since.

The port was originally set to release in 2021, but it didn’t arrive. The developer later stated in Annapurna Interactive’s showcase in July 2022 that it was “a bit over-optimistic” with the time frame for the Switch release, but that it’s still happening – which obviously was true, as it has since arrived on Nintendo’s platform.
