QUEBEC, Canada – February 25 – Following a successful launch on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox last year, the Sci-Fi Action-RPG Hellpoint from Cradle Games and tinyBuild is making its way to Nintendo Switch, both in digital and physical form, courtesy of retail publisher Merge Games. The Google Stadia version has also been released today, and PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions are still on track to come out in 2021.
The Nintendo Switch and Stadia versions are priced at $34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99. Additionally, a physical collector’s edition for Nintendo Switch is available from Signature Edition Games. Hellpoint’s Switch rendition will retain all gameplay features from the PC and console version with the exception of split-screen co-op (online co-op play is still supported).
Previously, Cradle Games announced that Hellpoint would be coming to Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 later in 2021, bringing higher resolutions and additional graphical features from the PC version to the new consoles. A next-gen backwards compatibility patch was released in December 2020, adding an optional 60 FPS mode for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The PS4 retail version will also go on sale February 26, available in both standard and collector’s editions.
