Cemetery management sim Graveyard Keeper is coming to Nintendo Switch "very soon".

Publisher tinyBuild uploaded a video to its official YouTube account featuring tinyBuild CEO Alex Nichiporchik playing Graveyard Keeper on Switch in a coffin. Nichiporchik says in a Twitter thread that the coffin is "comfortable" and details how tinyBuild managed to get coffins into its PAX East display. It's a fun little PR stunt for the game and you can check it out here (it's a short video, don't worry):

As you can see, the video's thumbnail beseeches fans to "plz stop asking about Graveyard Keeper Switch". Safe bet people probably will stop asking now they know it's definitely coming to the console, although we're still not sure exactly when we can expect the game. Nichiporchik says fans can check out the Switch build of Graveyard Keeper at tinyBuild's "super bright orange booth" at PAX East.

Graveyard Keeper bills itself as "the most inaccurate medieval cemetery sim of the year". Players build and manage their very own medieval graveyard and must wrestle with various ethical dilemmas and decisions throughout the course of the game. In addition to its moral quandaries, the game offers players the chance to explore dungeons to discover resources and crafting materials, as well as taking quests from villagers and maintaining their graveyard. The official Steam page for the game says Graveyard Keeper is about "the spirit of capitalism...doing whatever it takes to build a thriving business, and it's also a love story".

There's no word yet on exactly when we can expect Graveyard Keeper to be released for Nintendo Switch or whether the game will have any console-specific features. A content update titled Breaking Dead was recently released for the game so you can expect that to be included. In the meantime, you can pick it up on PC and Xbox One right now if you've a mind. You'll know the game's release date when we do.
