Wasteland 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch in August

No information on whether the game supports touchscreen or not

inExile Entertainment has released a new trailer for Wasteland 2 running on Nintendo Switch, showcasing the classic tactical gameplay that you may be familiar with if you played Fallout 1 & 2. The game was launched as a Kickstarter project in 2012 and debuted on PC in 2014. A year later the Director's Cut version of the game was released as a free upgrade to all owners of the original game. This is also the version that was eventually ported to consoles and will grace the Nintendo Switch.

The Wasteland 2 Director's Cut includes the original game, additional perks for character creation, and tons of new voice-over work that weren't included in the original. The trailer gives no indication if the game will take advantage of the Switch's touchscreen, which is helpful in games with lots of text.

While we don't know how well the game will perform on Switch, it's worth noting that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game have been criticized for being very buggy in the last chapter. Some reports suggest that an autosave bug in this version of the game can prevent progress, so hopefully inExile will have these bugs ironed out before the Switch version launches.

Are you itching for a tactical game on Switch? Will you be picking up Wasteland 2 when it releases?
