Crema announced that Immortal Redneck, after successfully making its debut on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, is now set to make its debut for the very first time on the Nintendo Switch starting May 10th. You’ll be able to pick the game up from the Nintendo eShop for $19.99.
The retro-themed shooter is a rogue-like blast to the past, where each run will be different depending on the scrolls you bring with you into the battle. Different scrolls will change what buffs, permutations, immunities, and debuffs you’ll suffer or take advantage of during a run, which Crema believes gives the game standing legs for replayability.
Guillermo Andrades, the co-founder of Crema, explained in the press release…
“Immortal Redneck’s scrolls ensure that each run keeps players on their toes, which is perfect for the Nintendo Switch system’s pick-up-and-play nature. As one of the first retro-style first-person shooters on Nintendo Switch, we hope to soon see people blasting and bunny-hopping in public!”
Interestingly enough, there aren’t many noteworthy first-person shooters available on the Switch, save for DOOM. It could end up being a medium sized fish in a very small pond.
For those of you who have no idea what the game is like, there’s a trailer below to give you a heads-up on the gameplay.
Originally Immortal Redneck came out last year for Steam, and then later made its debut on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live for the PS4 and Xbox One, respectively.
One Angry Gamer’s Matt Smail said the game was worth buying in his Immortal Redneck review.
Shortly after the game came out for PS4 and Xbox One, Crema announced that the game would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch at some point this year. Well, the news finally was let loose indicating that the game is coming to the Switch on May 10th.
The game sports 50 different weapons to collect, 100 different scrolls to utilize, and procedurally generated levels to battle through. You can look to play Immortal Redneck on the Nintendo Switch starting next month.
