Developer Studio Size Five Games and publisher Curve Digital have announced that The Swindle is making its way to Nintendo Switch next month.

Previously released on Wii U back in 2015, The Swindle is a "steampunk cybercrime caper about breaking into buildings, stealing oodles of cash, and hot-footing it from the police". Players need to platform their way across the game's artsy levels, making use of various lo-fi stealth mechanics to get their hands on the perfect loot.

Every building present in the game is randomly generated, so players will never carry out the same heist twice. Each area features patrolling robots, vigilant security cameras, and keen-eyed guards, all of which are intent on halting players in their search for some cheeky moolah. In between each mission, you're also able to modify your character with new skills, tools, and other "technological horrors".

The Swindle

We enjoyed our time with the game on Wii U, giving the game a very solid 7/10 and saying the following:

"The Swindle is another high quality download option on the Wii U eShop, offering a significant challenge for those that consider themselves to be gamers both sharp-witted and with fast reflexes. It's hugely clever, chaotic and funny, though there are downsides in the implementation of randomly generated stages and in some technical glitches and flaws. Despite some issues the premise, presentation, music and gameplay all work well together, making this a steal on the Wii U - just not the great heist it could have been."

The Swindle will launch on Nintendo Switch on 11th October for €14.99 / £14.99 / $14.99, with a 20% pre-purchase discount also available.
