Curve Digital and Kuju have revealed that Narcos: Rise of the Cartels, a game based on the award-winning Netflix series Narcos, is headed to Nintendo Switch.
The game has been described as a "brutal tactical turn-based strategy game" which lets players relive all the drama of the show's first season. You'll need to take the side of either the Medellin Cartel or the DEA in two distinct campaigns, both of which have been given their very own trailers:
Here's some PR to give you a little more info:
Based on the hit Netflix series from production company, Gaumont, Narcos: Rise of the Cartels features iconic locations and characters from the show, offering players the chance to step into the criminal underworld alongside characters such as El Mexicano, Murphy, Peña, Primo and more - each with their own unique gameplay abilities and perks to help turn the tide of battle. Explore familiar scenery from the show and take a pivotal role in world-altering events that will define and shift the war on drugs.
Fans of turn-based strategy will experience an exhilarating new take on the genre, with units on both sides moving simultaneously and with innovative new mechanics that allow players to take direct third-person command over their units in critical moments. Form your team from a variety of class-specific roles, upgrade your skills and join leading characters on the path to dominance, but beware - your actions will have lasting consequences.
The game is headed to Switch and other platforms digitally in "late 2019", although a physical release is also planned for "Q4 2019".
