Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is an open-world adventure across a beautiful, vibrant island.

Yonder is set on the massive island of Gemea, a lush frontier with eight distinct environments ranging from sunny tropical beaches to frigid snowcapped summits. Each location has its own flora and fauna, along with changing seasons and a day-night cycle. Gemea, once a paradise, still maintains the appearance of one, yet an evil murkhas enshrouded the land and its people in despair.

The hero of Yonder will explore the island, uncovering its secrets and the mysteries within them self as they embarks on a journey of self-discovery, while saving Gemea and its people. On the quest to become the island's champion, he or she will join forces with natives and Sprites, ethereal creatures whom are the only thing capable of dispersing the murk.

The towns of Gemea are filled with kind-hearted residents who have faced many difficulties since the arrival of the murk. By contributing to the island through talents like farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing, relationships can be built with the locals, who offer everything from resources to a new farm as rewards.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch.

A new feature-packed photo mode allowing you to share beautiful images of the world with your friends also debuts on the Switch.

"The beauty of Yonder is in its calming pace and relaxing gameplay. You’re free to explore the open world however you choose; it’s a beautiful, safe, inviting world,” said Cheryl Vance, co-founder and director at Prideful Sloth. “The Nintendo Switch lends itself to leisurely, comfortable play. It’s a great home for the unique experiences that Yonder provides.”

Developed by Prideful Sloth, a veteran team led by a trio who were formerly an Activision producer, a Rocksteady artist and a Rocksteady senior programmer.
