After originally being announced in 2018, the Zelda-like action-adventure game Tunic has officially launched. Players navigate a mysterious world as a fluffy fox, slowly uncovering the secrets of the land as they go. It's about as straightforward as Elden Ring (which, if you've played the game, you'll know is not straightforward at all) while combining the adorable animation style of cozy games.

This game looks so cute, you'd think it'd be a Nintendo Switch staple. But is it coming to the console?

Is 'Tunic' coming to the Nintendo Switch? What does it mean when a video game is a timed exclusive?

Tunic was planned as a limited edition release for Xbox consoles, meaning that the game would only be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Steam for a predetermined period of time.

Thankfully, it seems that that period of time is over, as Tunic will officially be coming to the Nintendo Switch on Sept. 27. Preorders for the game are already available on the Nintendo website, so you can access it as soon as it drops.

Even though the game has been out for less than a year, Steam players have already given it a "Very Positive" rating -- and now Switch players will be able to join in on the fun!

Both Polygon and IGN also spoke praises of the title. Polygon deemed the title "a more 'generous' kind of hard video game," while IGN called it a "fantastic Zelda-style game for the Elden Ring generation."

Is 'Tunic' available on Xbox Game Pass?

While it wasn't initially planned to, Tunic got a surprise release on Xbox Game Pass on launch day. This means anyone who has a subscription to the Microsoft-owned video game service can check out the game as part of their subscription.

Though there may not be a release date for the Nintendo Switch in sight, Tunic is currently available on both Xbox consoles and PC through Game Pass and Steam, respectively.
