MINTROCKET recently released a free update on Steam for its cozy diving adventure hybrid, Dave the Diver, that adds a fresh questline, new event boss, novel species, and more. This is the first major content update for the game since its 1.0 launch. MINTROCKET has also announced that Dave The Diver is now available on Nintendo Switch. They confirmed that all content added in the latest update on Steam, aside from the Steam Points Shop items, is also available on the Nintendo Switch version.

The Switch version also includes new Joy-Con controls for certain activities and minigames— and of course the ability to play on the go: on the bus, on your boat, or while sunbathing on the beach beside the lapping ocean waves. To celebrate Dave the Diver’s console debut with the Nintendo Switch launch, the MINTROCKET team has released a live-action trailer.
The cute, colorful, and critically acclaimed Dave the Diver is surprisingly deep, with tons of secrets and gameplay to uncover as players explore. Players who download the Steam update can follow novel missions in the Blue Hole’s Glacial Area, discover additional nighttime fish species, catch crustaceans with new crab and lobster traps (and enjoy a Lobster Party event), unlock a powerful new event boss after collecting all Marinca, and meet a novel VIP customer: The Wandering Merchant, who provides new secret recipes and crops. Speaking of crops, the update adds some farming automations and tools: players can now ask Sammy to help with tasks on the farm; they can set up a chicken feed dispenser and can use a new egg storage box to keep eggs from spoiling. The update also includes improvements to game load times and performance, as well as quality of life additions. Steam players can collect new items from the Steam Points Shop, including trading cards, profiles, emojis, and badges.
Dave the Diver is available on the Nintendo eShop for $19.99 and is also available for the same price on Steam.
