Firewatch is making its move to Nintendo Switch much sooner than we expected. In fact, it’ll be landing on the eShop in just a few short days with a mid-December release date that’s just in time for the holidays.

Campo Santo’s debut walking sim, Firewatch is a riveting mystery tale surrounding Henry, a man who’s taken a summer job as a fire lookout in Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming. Your job is to keep an eye out for wildfires, but strange happenings quickly draw you into a mystery that’s a bit bigger than all of that.


Firewatch is filled to the brim with gorgeous vistas, plenty of suspense, a superb soundtrack, and emotional impact, making it one of the strongest new indie releases when it originally launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC back in 2016.

Firewatch arrives on Nintendo Switch on December 17 for £14.99.
