Video game console launch titles have always had a lackluster history in showcasing the actual strengths of a new generation console. While early generations usually relied on cross-generation releases, some would break the mold. In PlayStation’s past, this has been most evident with Knack and the PlayStation 4. Despite spawning a successful franchise with a second installment, Knack couldn’t live up to the power of the PS4. Yet, Bugnsax on the PS5 certainly drew some interest for the same purpose. Yet, the title largely remained a cross-generation PlayStation 4 game. Many fans were curious about the title’s future on other platforms. The possibility of which has finally been realized 2 years since release. The new Bugsnax update, The Isle of BIGsnax, has finally received a release window on Switch, Xbox Game Pass, and PC.

When Does The Bugsnax Update Release on Switch, Xbox, and PC?
While the trailer is just a short cinematic look at what’s to come, the real news is the update on game ports. While Bugsnax has been available for PlayStation 4 and 5 owners for a few years, many have wondered when the game would launch on other systems. A PC and Xbox Game Pass release were obvious as those platforms are more than capable of handling the demanding graphics. Yet, the Nintendo Switch is one system that is notorious for requiring an always-online connection. In order to stream a video game, the Nintendo Switch has often received games in the form of cloud-only releases. Yet, it seems like Bugsnax will release as an official cartridge for the Nintendo Switch later this month. The update launches for all users on April 28th, with the game releasing on other platforms that day as well. Be sure to check back for more info on the future of Bugsnax: The Isle of BIGsnax when it releases later this month.
