Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles launching on Switch later this month

Whimsical indie-hit coming to Nintendo console

Australian indie-outfit Prideful Sloth have announced that their daydream adventure title Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, will making its Nintendo Switch debut later this month.

Yonder, which was released on PS4 and PC in the Summer of 2017, sees a custom player character searching the mystical island of Gemea for sprites, the gathering of which will prevent a suffocating fog –  known as The Murk – from destroying the pleasant environment and its inhabitants.

As well as the sprite-hunting aspect, Yonder contains Harvest Moon-style distractions, such as farming, fishing and cooking in order to support the local townsfolk. The game received mixed reviews on release due to its simplistic gameplay, which some found shallow, but it was celebrated by fans as a good game to just sit back and chill with.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles launches for Switch on the Nintendo eShop May 17. A retail version will follow on June 12 in North America and June 15 in Europe.
