Subnautica is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch next year. Unknown Worlds announced the news during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase.
There is no specific date of arrival yet. But, the good news is the Subnautica sequel, Subnautica: Below Zero will come to the Switch as well.
“We have been hard at work behind-the-scenes, in partnership with Shiny Shoe and Unity Professional Services, to bring both titles to the Nintendo platform,” Unknown Worlds said in their blog post.
“We are excited to finally able to share this work with all of you, as difficult as it was to keep a secret and hope that it was worth that wait,” the developers added.
For now, Switch owners need to wait for a while before conquering the depths of Planet 4546B.

Survive the depths of a foreign planet
Subnautica is an open-world survival game where players need to gather resources. It starts with the player waking up after crashing into the foreign planet.
Players need to catch their food, craft water, and monitor health levels. However, it is easier said than done. There are creatures in the game that are dangerous as well.
As the game progresses, players will be able to upgrade their equipment. This gives them the chance to explore the deeper parts of the map.
But, the difficulty of the game gets harder as well. It is also more dangerous as the game gets deeper.
Subnautica is quite similar to The Sims due to the building mechanics. The main difference is the survival aspect and the dangers of the vast ocean.
