The team behind the excellent slow-motion shooter Superhot has just announced a sequel of sorts. Superhot: Mind Control Delete is due to hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One on July 16th – and it's also coming to Switch, in the fullness of time.
Originally intended as free DLC, Superhot: Mind Control Delete has "blossomed into hours and hours and hours and hours of new and expanded Superhot gameplay," and will give players "more insight into the world of Superhot, more story," and "more signature gameplay."
Superhot: Mind Control Delete will be larger than previous games, and will offer new mechanics to make use of. You'll also benefit from new characters to use and a wide range of skills, hacks, special techniques, which you can accumulate as you play. Enemies will be smarter, and the whole packing will offer "a more refined, sharper, flashier experience than any Superhot so far."
The game will retail for $24.99, but if you've already purchased Superhot (or you buy it before July 16th), then you'll be able to get it for free – that means there are potentially 2 million free copies to be given away. However, this deal might not apply to the Switch version, and the game's FAQ rather confusingly states that the game isn't announced for the platform yet (despite PR emails saying the exact opposite):
We’re not releasing or announcing MCD for Switch right now. We’ll let everyone know if this changes. In the meantime, if you can’t wait for a Switch release then please send us the Nintendo e-shop receipt for your original SUPERHOT purchase to [email protected] and we’ll hook you up with a DRM-free copy for PC.
So why aren't we getting the Switch version at launch? According to the team, they need to launch on other platforms first before porting to Nintendo's console:
To answer your question - before we port, we must finish the game on Steam first. Need some nice basis to work on.
Are you excited about more Superhot?
