Raiser Games and U-Play Online have revealed that Youtubers Life: OMG Edition is headed to Nintendo Switch. We don't have long to wait to check it out, either, as it's scheduled to launch for the system on 14th November.
Youtubers Life is a simulation game where - you guessed it - you can become the most successful YouTuber in the world and knock that Pewdiepie down a peg or two in the process. You'll be creating videos, getting more subscribers than you could ever imagine, attending media events, interacting with your fans, and doing everything in your power to let your channel grow.
Starting off in your parents' house, getting your first subscriber or two, you'll soon be well on your way to stardom, meeting other well-known YouTubers, heading out to crazy YouTube parties, and sharing your life through your various social media channels. The game even goes so far as letting you deal with haters, getting you to sort through the struggles of monetising your content, and allowing you to sign with YouTube networks, in an almost scarily life-like experience.
The game features three "channels" for players to explore:
Become a famous gamer in the Gaming Channel – Record gameplays, reviews, speed runs, walkthroughs… Collect all the consoles from across generations, playyourfavorite titles and even develop your own video games!
Play your own compositions in the Music Channel – Play 30 different instruments and more than 10 music genres. Publish covers, lessons, duets, compose the catchiest songs and give exciting live concerts!
Cook the tastiest recipes in the Cooking Channel – Create new, exotic dishes from different gastronomies. Upload tips, tutorials and collaborative dishes, become an experienced chef and work in your own restaurant!
The game actually launched on PC - without the "OMG Edition" tag - back in 2016, unsurprisingly resulting in YouTubers playing the game on YouTube, where they pretended to be a YouTuber for their YouTube fans who were watching the YouTube game be played on YouTube. This new release has been designed especially for consoles, however, with new features such as a revamped interface being included.
