The originally PS4-console-exclusive adventure is coming to Switch.
Nintendo’s February 13 Direct offered plenty of surprises, including the reveal that the originally PS4-console-exclusive Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
Revealed during a suite of third-party announcements for Switch, Nintendo confirmed that Ninja Theory’s third-person action-exploration game will be released for the Switch this spring.
Hellblade originally came to the PS4 and PC in 2017, followed by a release on Xbox One in 2018.
Hellblade follows Senua, a celtic warrior on a quest into Helheim. The adventure takes advantage of binaural audio design to create a sense of 3D sound that is intrinsically tied to the main character, who suffers from psychosis and hears voices throughout her journey.
IGN’s Hellblade review called the adventure “a masterclass of atmosphere, storytelling, and the marriage of mechanical and conceptual design.”
Hellblade isn’t the only third-party game of note coming to the Switch. Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered for Switch, while a host of other, upcoming third-party games were highlighted for the Switch.
Though originally published before the acquisition, it’s interesting to note that Microsoft acquired Hellblade developer Ninja Labs in 2018, along with a host of other studios.
Be sure to stay tuned to IGN for more from the Feb. 13 Nintendo Direct.
