SUPERHOT now available on Nintendo Switch
I wouldn’t have called SUPERHOT to the Switch, but here we are…
The port actually makes a lot of sense, as the levels in SUPERHOT lend themselves pretty well to mobile play just as well as they do lounging on the couch in front of the TV, andthe addition of gyroscopic aiming (optional) shows this isn’t just a quick port.
With 60 fps gameplay and what sounds like a great implementation of the Switch’s unique control opportunities, shooter fans should dive into this one. I loved it on Xbox One and it’s available now on the Switch!
Here’s the press release:
SUPERHOT Explodes onto the Nintendo Switch Today
SUPERHOT hacks its way onto the Nintendo Switch
The team loves Nintendo and wanted to make sure SUPERHOT on Switch was the best it could possibly be. They’ve gone whole hog in making sure the game runs smooth as butter on Nintendo’s console and went the extra mile with a few shiny new features.
Taking full advantage of the Switch has to offer, the biggest change awaiting both new and returning players is the addition of optional gyroscope aiming. These intuitive new mechanics allow an extreme degree of aiming precision not previously possible. Players can also hack, slash, shot and swipe with the Joy-Cons to shatter the Red Dudes with just a flick of their wrist. SUPERHOT on the go has never been so accessible or so fun.
- All new adjustable gyroscope aiming
- Optional motion controls
- Fully optimized for the Switch
- Silky smooth 60 FPS
- Full support for docked and handheld play
“We love the Switch. Our team spent months and months and months making sure we did a great job bringing SUPERHOT to the most innovative video gaming system we’ve played in years. Full gyro controls make the game incredibly more immersive – you really feel like an action hero, you use your whole body to dodge hails of slow motion bullets. It’s a feeling we worked hard to evoke on PC and other consoles but SUPERHOT on Switch just takes it to an entirely new level.” – Tom Kaczmarczyk, Cofounder
SUPERHOT can be purchased on the eShop as of today for $24.99 USD and is also available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
