Revolution Software and Ravenscourt have announced that Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse is headed to Nintendo Switch this September.

Building upon its 2015 release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the Switch edition of this adventure game features a reimagined user interface designed to take full advantage of the console's functionality, allowing players to use both the Joy-Con and touchscreen in tandem. The Switch version will also include behind-the-scenes movies which reveal the story and the development process behind the game, all of which can be unlocked as play progresses.

With plenty of puzzles and point-and-click style adventuring to sink your teeth into, Broken Sword 5 aims to mix cerebral puzzling and sharp wit with historical authenticity and intrigue, as seen in the game's synopsis:

Paris in the spring. Shots ring out from a gallery. A robbery – a murder – and the beginning of another epic original Broken Sword adventure. An adventure that will hurl intrepid lawyer George Stobbart and sassy journalist Nico Collard onto the trail of a murderous conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word. Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humour - can George and Nico outwit evil forces both ancient and modern and save mankind from disaster?

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse will release worldwide for Nintendo Switch on 21st September at a price of £24.99 /€29.99. Both digital and physical versions will be available.
