Cyberpunk Action Game Ghostrunner Launches On Switch This Month
The first-person parkour action game has taken a little more time to get just right for Nintendo's handheld console.
If you've wanted to dive into the cyberpunk-fueled action of Ghostrunner but prefer to have a version for on-the-go gaming, then you'll be happy to know that the Nintendo Switch version of the game is set to launch on November 10.
Co-publishers All in Games and 505 Games have confirmed the release date after a previous delay of the port, with Ghostrunner having launched already on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The press release states that the visually demanding title has been tuned accordingly for the Nintendo Switch and its hardware, which should produce a "smooth experience". The PS4 version of the game was rough at launch, but has since been patched to fix many of its technical issues.
Ghostrunner is a first-person action game with melee-focused combat and a heavy reliance on quick, acrobatic parkour. Each enemy can be taken down with a single hit, but you can fall equally fast to their ranged attacks. The game challenges your reflexes and combat awareness, letting you pull off stylish kills and execute split-second escapes with your flexible but strong katana.
It's a formula that is as riveting to play as it sounds on paper, too. GameSpot's Ghostrunner review praised the game's white-knuckle combat and engrossing difficulty, with critic Mike Epstein writing, " There's bound to be a lot of frustration along the way, so it isn't all smiles, exactly, but the rush you feel in the moment as you perfectly run a room is worth the grit."
