A surprise announcement was made at Gamescom for the Nintendo Switch this morning: SUPERHOT is now available on the handheld console! They wanted to make sure it ran as smooth as possible and also has some new features for the Switch audience. Taking full advantage of the Switch has to offer, the biggest change awaiting both new and returning players is the addition of optional gyroscope aiming. These intuitive new mechanics allow an extreme degree of aiming precision not previously possible. Players can also use the Joycons to slash, shoot and swipe to destroy the Red Dudes, with a flick of their wrist.
“We love the Switch. Our team spent months and months and months making sure we did a great job bringing SUPERHOT to the most innovative video gaming system we’ve played in years. Full gyro controls make the game incredibly more immersive – you really feel like an action hero, you use your whole body to dodge hails of slow motion bullets. It’s a feeling we worked hard to evoke on PC and other consoles but SUPERHOT on Switch just takes it to an entirely new level.” – Tom Kaczmarczyk, Cofounder
