Medieval cemetery management sim Graveyard Keeper is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 27th. The game was originally announced to be coming to Nintendo's console back in March.

News of the game's Switch release date came via publisher tinyBuild's official Twitter accountGraveyard Keeper for Switch looks like a fairly standard port. We're not sure yet whether the game will have any features or content unique to the Switch (other than the obvious handheld-TV choice, of course). The publisher also says a physical Switch release for the game is unlikely and that Graveyard Keeper will be coming to PlayStation 4 "same day or shortly after" (the Switch release date).

Graveyard Keeper sees you taking control of a car accident victim who finds themselves in charge of a run-down medieval graveyard. Much like Stardew Valley or Harvest Moon, your time is split between caring for your graveyard, completing quests for villagers, and gathering resources. Unlike those games, you'll also frequently be called upon to solve ethical dilemmas. You might, for example, be asked to provide meat for food at a local festival. Will you source actual meat? That'll take time and money. Alternately, there are plenty of "resources" lying around you could use instead. There's plenty of dark humor to be found in Graveyard Keeper, but there's also a surprisingly robust management sim in there.

You can grab Graveyard Keeper on Xbox One or on PC via Steam or If you're holding out for the Switch version, you can pre-purchase it now for a 10% discount. Naturally, all content updates for the game will also be coming to the Switch version. We're looking forward to managing our very own graveyard on the move.
