Another World Coming To Nintendo Switch In Spring 2018

DotEmu today announced that Another World, also known as Out of This World in North America and Outer World in Japan, will arrive on Nintendo Switch late next month.

DotEmu has worked closely with original creator and industry visionary Eric Chahi on the Switch version, staying true to the original feel of the game and its deep sci-fi universe setting. Featuring a compelling story and captivating adventure, players will be able to switch back and forth in real time between the original and HD graphics and choose from three difficulty modes.

Another World tells the remarkable tale of Lester Knight Chaykin, a young and rather talented physicist. While working on an experiment using a particle accelerator, a lightning bolt strikes his lab, causing an unforeseen particle fusion. The accompanying explosion opens a hole in the fabric of space and time, teleporting Lester to a barren, alien planet. Players lead Lester through a series of dangerous environments, battling alien soldiers and wild creatures while solving unique and creative puzzles in order to survive.

Another World will be showcased at the upcoming Game Developers Conference in the GDC Play Lounge (PS4253), located in the North Hall, Wednesday through Friday during show floor hours.


  • Switch back and forth in real time between the original and HD graphics
  • 3 difficulty modes
  • Five languages: English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish
