Alien: Isolation Nintendo Switch release has been revealed for the first time on E3 2019, and now Feral Interactive has brought its AAA survival horror game Alien: Isolation on Switch. The game’s original creator was Creative Assembly, while SEGA handled the publishing, which lead to an award-winning game with tense and immersive atmosphere and edgy gameplay that wears all the best parts from the cult classic Alien movie series, by 20th Century Fox.
Alien: Isolation story is set 15 years after the events in the first movie Alien, and the main protagonist of the game is Amanda, Ellen Ripley’s daughter. She seeks to find out the truth behind Ripley’s disappearance. The gameplay begins after Amanda is marooned into an abandoned space station titled Sevastopol where she and a few survivors are stalked by Aliens.
The Sevastopol Station is where the entirety of the game revolves in, as it is a labyrinth of hallways, tunnels, and air vents. Amanda and the survivors need to stay stealthy, crawl their way through the areas, explore them, and find resources needed to survive until the help arrives. The Aliens behave as you would imagine. They are even more dangerous here than in the movies and the player really needs to outthink them in order to stay alive.
This game was initially released in 2014, and it has thus far conquered Microsoft Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Linux, OS X, and now Nintendo Switch. Here, the emphasis is on stealth as much as survival, as the game’s atmosphere is not for the faint of heart and it will have yours beating out of the chest all the time. We need to outthink, outsmart, and deal with a single Alien creature using just a motion sensor and a flamethrower. In this respect, the game looks much like the first movie of the franchise.
Selling over two million copies within its first year since release, this title has achieved critical and commercial success and it is continuing its rise now on Nintendo Switch. Alien: Isolation is now ready to make good use out of the most advanced portable console of today and immerse the players in its heart-stopping survival story. The game also pioneered some cool features, like gyroscopic aiming and HD rumble. All that and more is now available as a premium purchase on the Nintendo Store.
