Friday the 13th: The Game headed to Switch

Written by on | OpenCritic

Nighthawk Interactive has announced that the Ultimate Slasher Edition of Friday the 13th: The Game is coming to Nintendo Switch in August. The Ultimate Slasher Edition will include the base game, all released DLC, and an 11x17 limited-edition poster. Pre-orders for the physical edition are already open at Amazon and GameStop for $40. The game will be coming to Target and Best Buy (and other retailers) in the near future.

Publisher Gun Media and developer Black Tower Studios are bringing Friday the 13th: The Game to Nintendo Switch for the first time, as a love letter to the original movie franchise with iconic film locations and character models painstakingly recreated down to the bloody details. The game pits eight players against each other, either as one of seven teen counselors, or as iconic killer Jason Voorhees himself. Counselors must search for the tools to survive, escape or even try to take down the infamous murder machine, while Jason must rely on his array of abilities to track, hunt and kill his prey. The teens need to contend with time itself, too, as Jason not only feeds off the fear of his victims, but also becomes stronger as the night progresses.

Friday the 13th: The Game Ultimate Slasher Edition features include:

  • All DLC and retail-exclusive content
  • 8-player multiplayer
  • single player mode
  • killer variety
  • character customization
  • "franchise authenticity"
