We've had our eye on first-person parkour game Ghostrunner for a while now, and while the trailers look very impressive indeed, we're intrigued to see how all that cyberpunk glitz and wall-running action translates to Switch. The game is out now on other platforms and was supposed to be coming to Switch today, too, although unfortunately Nintendo gamers will have to wait just a little bit longer than the rest.
According to publisher All In! Games, it's been decided to hold back the Switch version until a to-be-determined date in November, "to provide players the best experience possible". Here's some more detail direct from the horse's mouth:
The Nintendo Switch version faces a slight delay into November, as the Ghostrunner teams want all players to have the best possible experience with the game. The final date will be announced in the coming days, so please stay tuned for more information.
While this may be disappointing to some, November is only a handful of days away and given what we've seen of the game so far, the Switch version will need some real care and attention if it's to take its place alongside other quality ports on the system. Far better the devs take the time required to deliver a fine version of the game than the alternative, no?
We've certainly got our fingers crossed that this extra time benefits the Switch edition of Ghostrunner because, well, it looks pretty neat — check out the launch trailer below for another taste.
