The Donut Has Landed: Spacebase Startopia Out Now On Nintendo Switch™

Space sim touches down on Nintendo Switch™ family of consoles, launch trailer available now

Publisher Kalypso Media and in-house developer Realmforge Studios have today announced that Spacebase Startopia is now available for Nintendo Switch™.
 
Offering hours of strategic space station management action, Spacebase Startopia for Nintendo Switch™ also gives players a veritable space-buffet of extra-terrestrial entertainment – from space whale therapy sessions to cat cafes and even the time-bending Black Hole Drop – and a selection of galactic gadgetry to deck out their base and attempt to entice the interest of passing holidaymakers. In cooperation with the station's own totally-not-homicidal AI, VAL, players will have to work to transform their base’s three unique decks into the galaxy’s #1 holiday hotspot.
