If you have not played the ultra charming (and perhaps a little disturbing) game Octodad: Dadliest Catch, yet, now is maybe the time. Developer Young Horses simply tweeted that it’s ported the bizarrely compelling (and super successful) title to the Nintendo Switch. the game is available for download on Nov 9 for $15 on Nintendo eShop

If you’ve played the game before, maybe being able to replay it on the go will create it worth your cash. The game, itself a sequel to the freeware title Octodad, is a pretty much current platform, together with Android, iOS, Linux, Windows, OS X, PlayStation four and Vita, tvOS, Wii U and Xbox One. as one reply to the original tweet notes, “Do I have to buy this game for the sixth time? calm down, boys.”
So, the Switch was probably our easiest port we’ve done for Octodad. We hardly had to change much code from Android version.

Interestingly, that it was an easy port from the Android version of the game. one of the developers at the company also tweeted This makes sense, considering that Nintendo originally planned for the hybrid console to run Android.
