Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Hellblade on Switch releasing next week, 11th April

Well that came outta nowhere; I was thinking it'd be in May or June since we hadn't heard anything until now. Can't say I'm complaining though!

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

That was quick as fudge.



I played the shit out this game on PS4. It's really fabulous. If you're a Switch-only gamer, I definitely recommend it.

Just a comment. Isn't this interesting that this is coming to a Nintendo platform after Microsoft bought the developer?

It just goes to show that Nintendo and Microsoft are friendly right now. I knew since the days of the Wii60 that this was a match made in heaven. There is a possibility that Microsoft could bring its service maestry to a Nintendo platform. That would be wonderful for all sides, particularly the gamers..

I mean the game was first brought on PS4 and PC and the game is their own IP (I don't think it is owned by Microsoft) so I think they made the decision to bring it on Switch by thei own will, not Microsoft.

A shame for me, I've spent all my money on PC stuff and don't have any left for buying games. I guess a game can release too early... I don't really see myself going back to get this one post-release.

Then again, it's possible it'd run better on my PC now that I'm upgrading it, so the Switch version might not matter to me in the end.

Either way, it is cool that it came so fast.

looked like a great port in the video we got a few days ago, interested in what DF has to say about it

Yeah that's probably the case.

I've heard somewhere that this Switch version was in the works before Microsofts aquisition. Still, it's pretty interesting. Microsoft also published Minecraft on 3DS(or was it Wii U? Don't remember)

I think MS is shifting their focus on gaming from hardware, into software and services.



Can't wait! One game I was begging to be ported.

The port of Minecraft was done on the New3DS (exclusive,lol) and WiiU. It published both.

I really wanna get this day 1 but 18 GB is a lot of space for a digital story driven game.

I think I’ll be waiting to see if a physical version comes out.
