Stranded Deep Lands on Nintendo Switch Shores

Now you can be a survivor anywhere with the Switch port of survival game Stranded Deep.

Now you can be a survivor anywhere with the Switch port of survival game Stranded Deep.

Summer may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still soak up the rays as a castaway on a beautiful, if dangerous, deserted isle. Stranded Deep lets you do just that while surviving the harsh weather and even harsher predators that lurk on land and in the ocean — and it’s now on Nintendo Switch. 

Stranded Deep was released on PC years (and years) ago, before sailing to PS4 and Xbox One in 2020. Beam Team Games, though, definitely wanted players to take the survival game with them wherever they go, perhaps even a real desert isle. Hence the Switch port, obviously. 

This version is available digitally through the Nintendo eShop for $24.99, and it can be played in TV, Tabletop, and Handheld modes.

Though the PC version of Stranded Deep does offer multiplayer, the PS4 and Xbox One ports do not, and according to the product listing for the Switch version, that’s still the case here. However, it does appear that Beam Team is looking to add multiplayer functionality to Xbox consoles, so perhaps something could be in the works for other platforms as well.
