Xbox Games Pentiment and Grounded Confirmed for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation


Xbox games Pentiment and Grounded are confirmed to be coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation consoles.

Both Obsidian-developed games launched first on Xbox and PC, but arrive on Nintendo Switch as part of Microsoft’s new multiplatform push, signaled by Xbox boss Phil Spencer last week during Microsoft’s Xbox business update.

As revealed in today’s Nintendo Direct, narrative adventure Pentiment launches on Nintendo Switch tomorrow, February 22, while bug-tastic survival game Grounded launches April 16. IGN’s Pentiment review returned a coveted 10/10. “Pentiment is a clever Late Medieval detective story with a gorgeously-realized world that I can hardly recommend highly enough,” we said. IGN’s Grounded review scored the game 9/10: “Grounded is a fantastic survival game with a killer premise, rewarding progression, and boundless creativity that even a host of bugs can’t spoil.”

Following the direct, Obsidian Entertainment revealed in a blog post that both these games will arrive on PS4 and PS5. Like the Switch releases, Pentiment will be available on PlayStation starting tomorrow, while Grounded will be released in mid-April.

Microsoft had said four Xbox games would release on other platforms, although failed to name them. We now know two are Pentiment and Grounded. The other two are reportedly Tango Gameworks’ music action game Hi-Fi Rush, and Rare’s pirate adventure Sea of Thieves. Due to their absence from today’s Nintendo Direct, Microsoft announced after today that both these games are coming to PS5 on March 19 and April 30, respectively.

Editor’s Note: This story has been updated with confirmation that Grounded and Pentiment will release on PlayStation consoles.
