DAVE THE DIVER Serves Up Splashy Free PC Update; Sets Course for Nintendo Switch


Major Steam update with new questline, marine life, and boss will also launch to Nintendo Switch™— pre-order bonuses available until October 25, 2023

Today MINTROCKET is releasing a free update to the cozy diving adventure hybrid, Dave the Diver, adding 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. The update will be available today on Steam, and will arrive on Nintendo Switch™ at launch on October 26th, 2023. Nintendo Switch™ pre-orders are available on the eShop, alongside a free demo for players who want to test the waters now; pre-orders come with an exclusive 8-bit themed skin for Dave’s boat, plus a Dave-shaped lamp decoration for the sushi restaurant. 

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 today’s 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. Starting today, Steam players can collect new items from the Steam Points Shop, including trading cards, profiles, emojis, and badges. 

Aside from the Steam Points Shop items mentioned above, MINTROCKET confirmed all content added in the latest update will be available on the Nintendo Switch at launch. The Switch version will also include 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.
Dave the Diver is available now on Steam for 19.99 USD, and is available to pre-order for the same price on the Nintendo eShop— there’s less than a month before the game splashes onto Nintendo Switch on October 26, 2023!
