The Magnificent Trufflepigs Gets PC Release Date, Switch Coming Later in Summer

The metal-detecting romance stars Doctor Who actor Arthur Darvill.

The Magnificent Trufflepigs, the next game led by Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture lead designer Andrew Crawshaw, has a release date on PC. The metal-detecting romance adventure game is coming to Steam on June 3, with an Epic Game Store launch “soon after,” according to publisher AMC Games. A Switch version is also coming, but won’t be day-and-date with the PC version. If you’d rather play it on your console/handheld hybrid, The Magnificent Trufflepigs will head to the eShop this summer.

Alongside the announcement, AMC Games released a live-action teaser focusing on one of the characters in Magnificent Trufflepigs’ romance: Beth, and her fascination with metal detecting and finding buried treasure.
