Mobile developer Madfinger Games is bringing its free to play shooter Shadowgun Legends to Switch, it has been confirmed.
This visually stunning FPS took Madfinger just two days to port to the Switch, thanks to the fact that it is built using the Unity engine. The company's previous efforts have all been mobile exclusives, aside from the original Shadowgun, which was released on the Android-based Ouya console - remember that?
Shadowgun Legends is already available on iOS and Google Play, where it has received a warm critical reception. It boasts over 500 weapons and more than 1000 pieces of armour, which can be earned in raid battles. Madfinger has stated that it is committed to putting the player first with an in-game live streaming system, "total transparency of the game and update development" and a "bulletproof" anti-cheat system.
