FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND – May 17, 2018 – Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, the open-world adventure from the former Activision producer and Rocksteady veterans at Prideful Sloth in which players explore the vibrant but troubled island of Gemea, is available today on Nintendo Switch. A Switch-exclusive photo mode will help you capture precious moments and share them with your friends.

As a young, customizable heroine or hero destined for greatness, your journey begins humbly enough as you set sail on the open waters. One surprise storm and shipwreck later you find yourself on the gorgeous island known as Gemea. Yet not all is right here, as a shadowy substance known as Murk has spread throughout the land. Determined to help rid the island of Murk and earn your keep, you must farm, craft, cook, brew, fish, and explore.

The only way to truly dispel Murk is to discover magical sprites hidden throughout the land. Assisting the townsfolk by working the land and providing food for them unveils the sprites’ locations. Once the Murk has been dispelled more of Gemea becomes accessible. Eight beautiful biomes from peaceful plains to frozen valleys with day, night, and weather cycles brim with secrets and even adorable animals to befriend.

Yonder’s pleasant world makes for a perfect portable adventure. Relax at the end of the day in Gemea as you let the troubles fade from your mind. A fully-featured Switch-exclusive photo mode helps you share those tender moments with friends.

“Despite that pesky Murk, Gemea is a land of warmth and tranquility,” said Cheryl Vance, co-founder and director at Prideful Sloth. “We want players to enjoy getting their hands dirty by living off the land from the comfort of their couch.”

Yonder is available digitally for $29.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop, and will be available via physical retail for $39.99 on June 12 in the United States and June 15 in Europe and Australia.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is playable in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese.
