Like many people out there, I was in the market for a new video game system when I heard that Nintendo announced that their new system would be arriving in March 2017. Naturally, I was excited at the thought of being one of the first people to play the newest Nintendo system.

When you think of Nintendo, you think of games. But with the Switch, Nintendo is embracing a different market. It has shown the first signs of support for the reality TV genre with the hit series “Stranded Deep.” Without cable or cable-like services, the Switch provides access to hundreds of shows that are not available on most streaming services. Smart TVs, like the ones that the Switch supports, are like mini-evolutionaries, with an HD streaming service integrated.

It’s been some time since I’ve bought a Nintendo Switch, but as of this week, some of my friends and I will be playing through the extremely enjoyable and immersive Undertale adventure. But how did we all get here? As with many things, the journey started on a fateful day in August of 2016.

Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still bask in the sun as a castaway on a lovely, though hazardous, deserted island. Stranded Deep, which is now available on Nintendo Switch, allows you to do exactly that while surviving the harsh weather and even worse creatures that lurk on land and in the sea. 

Stranded Deep was first published on PC years (and years) ago, and will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2020. Beam Team Games, on the other hand, wanted players to be able to take the survival game with them wherever they went, even to a real desert island. As a result, there’s a Switch port. 

This version may be purchased digitally for $24.99 on the Nintendo eShop and can be played on TV, Tabletop, or Handheld.

Though the PC version of Stranded Deep has multiplayer, the PS4 and Xbox One versions do not, and the product description for the Switch version confirms this. However, it seems like Beam Team is aiming to bring multiplayer capabilities to Xbox systems, so something for other platforms may be in the pipeline as well. 

If you’re just starting started with Stranded Deep on Nintendo Switch, check out our instructions center for some quick pointers. 

We all know the world of sports is a dangerous place, but this is a new level. You can drown in a pool, survive an avalanche, get stranded at sea, and of course get eaten by a shark. But what about getting stranded on a desert island? How does that work? Well, it depends on the world you’re stranded in. If it’s a desert island in the middle of nowhere, you’re more or less doomed. But if it’s a desert island in the middle of the ocean, you’re probably on pretty safe ground. And even if it’s a desert island in the middle of the Pacific, on your way to another destination, you may be in for a rough ride.. Read more about stranded deep and let us know what you think.
