Developer Studio Wildcard has officially announced that a Nintendo Switch version of the 2015 indy-hit Ark: Survival Evolved is in the works.

The reveal was made at the State of Unreal presentation at the annual Game Developers Conference, just days after the developer announced that a free-to-play version of the game is also heading to mobile devices.

According to the developer the Switch version of Ark: Survival Evolved will include “the complete contents and features of the original game; from the massive and mysterious ARK island, to the more than 100 prehistoric- and fantasy-inspired creatures such as the T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, Rock Drake and Reaper.”

“The Switch’s handheld mode provides a fantastic new capability for survivors who want to fully immerse themselves in the vast worlds of ARK,” said Studio Wildcard’s Jeremy Stieglitz, co-director on Ark: Survival Evolve. “With this new version, Switch players can go directly from hunting and taming while sitting on the couch, to forming online tribes and searching out new conquests when on the bus, waiting in line, or wherever they happen to be.”

The game is due for release on the Nintendo Switch as both a physical and digital product sometime this fall.
