Call of Juarez: Gunslinger will enter the Nintendo Switch salon this December, with enhanced motion controls and HD rumble effects. Jessie James, Billy the Kid, and other legends are all nothing compared to Silas Greaves, the bounty hunter who’s now riding onto Switch. This critically acclaimed cowboy shooter PC game blasted its way through all relevant critics and publications, shooting up to 8 or 9-star ratings, and now the action is going to be portable.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a FPS shooter with a Western-theme from the acclaimed series of Call of Juarez games. The first installment was released in 2006, while the latest, the one that’s now being ported to Switch, came out in 2013. The original games come from Techland, a developing and publishing company based in Poland, with Ubisoft being on board until 2018. The titles were particularly praised for their awesome music tracks, which were composed by Pawel Blaszczak.
The original installment is available for PC, PlayStation3, and Xbox 360. It was released in 2013, so it’s got some mileage in it, but this Switch version will feature HD enhancements of course. The game brings the traditional Old West setting with unique story-driven game modes (story, duel, and arcade) and it follows Silas Greaves, the bounty hunter who narrates the trailer. Silas is disliked among all other gunslingers and outlaws, especially for the outrageous stories he tells about killing Butch Cassidy, Newman Haynes Clanton, and the likes. However, Silas quickly proves wiser as those stories usually end up with the death or deaths of those deserving.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Nintendo Switch release date is set for December 10, 2019, so strap your horses. It brings the same elements loved by the fans of the original, including the bullet-time action, duels, objectives, and bounties. Silas can also dodge bullets occasionally with a quick time event and he uses dual pistols, immersing the player in a fantasy Wild West gunslinging extravaganza unlike any so far on Switch.
