Play one of 2017's best games.


During the February 2019 Nintendo Direct (see all the news here), the company announced that Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice will be getting a Switch release. The acclaimed action game, which explores mental illness in a Norse mythology setting, has a release window of Spring 2019.

Nintendo didn't provide many details about the port during the presentation. Hellblade was originally a PlayStation 4 console exclusive (that was also available on PC), and it came to Xbox One in April 2018.
