It was announced today that Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, the open-world adventure from the former Activision producer and Rocksteady veterans at Prideful Sloth where players explore the vibrant but troubled island of Gemea, will offer a relaxing experience on Nintendo Switch May 17th. A Switch-exclusive photo mode will help you capture precious moments and share them with your friends.
Yonder will be available digitally for $29.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop, and will be available via physical retail for $39.99 USD on June 12th. It is already available for PlayStation 4 and on Steam.
Shipwrecked due to an unexpected storm, your young hero or heroine soon learns that they’re on the gorgeous island of Gemea. While taking refuge in a cave, a magical sprite explains that the land’s natural beauty is tainted by a strange, dark substance called Murk. With the sprite by your side, it’s up to you to both cleanse the land and assist the townsfolk and gain their trust. Farm, craft, cook, brew, and fish to restore the land to its former glory!
Wander through grand forests, resplendent peaks, and breezy shores to befriend Gemea’s lively villagers and adorable animals. Eight biomes with breathtaking day, night, and weather cycles abound with sprites that will help expel the murk, offer quests to help you earn your place on the island, and an abundance of other secrets to discover at your leisure.
“Yonder can be your home away from home on Nintendo Switch,” said Cheryl Vance, co-founder and director at Prideful Sloth. “We hope to see players embrace the calming feel of the game, no matter where they are.”
