A physical edition of Giant Squid’s open-world, action-adventure game, The Pathless, is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch. When the game launched in November 2020, it was available on PC and for Sony’s consoles, with two physical editions for the PS5 that were not offered for the PS4.

The Pathless recently released on 2/2 for the Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, but only in a digital format. It was well-received when it was initially released in 2020, with critics praising the visuals, ambience, and overall gameplay, while some voiced their opinion of its repetitiveness. Currently, there are few reviews of its other console versions, however some gamers might be pleased to have the option to purchase a physical copy instead of going digital.

The website iam8bit has declared the production of a Nintendo Switch exclusive material edition of The Pathless sometime in quarter two of 2023. This physical version of The Pathless will include an award-winning Elaine Lee artwork on its reversible cover sheet, as well as a 17.25 x 23-inch foldout poster and a selection of six art cards all at the expense of $39.99. Pre-orders can be taken now.

Giant Squid’s The Pathless was released as a launch title for the PS5 and had the benefit of taking full advantage of the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, producing a feeling as though one was pulling on a bowstring and giving the gamer subtle cues as to when to fire an arrow. Sadly, these specific features don’t exist in the other versions, however it still seems to have been favored by players.

Giant Squid’s second game, The Pathless, is quite a departure from their award-winning 2016 release of Abzu. While they share the same art style and emphasize exploration, that is the extent of their similarities. Abzu is a relaxing game, with a tranquil soundtrack and tranquil settings, while The Pathless is fast-paced, with the protagonist and her eagle companion soaring through the open world and providing extra speed with the bow. There are a wide range of puzzle difficulties to solve, with the help of a soundtrack composed by Austin Wintory, who has previously worked on Journey, Abzu, and The Banner Saga.

This game can be played on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
