      • I think his point was that people thought that the Switch couldn’t get western 3rd party mature games. Snake Pass being on the Switch and running the latest version of UE4 has already proven that the Switch isn’t as underpowered as some people may think

      • Thank you for being the only smart person in this chat. I’m suppose to think Nintendo is great to bring over a game that is an almost 4 year old game. All the games I’m seeing on the Switch are looking like ports every single time. Shove Knight, Skyrim, Rayman, Lego Undercover… I can pay 200 for a PS4 or even 150 for an Xbox 1 and get these games for 15 to 20 dollars instead of repaying 60 for it when it releases on switch. Nintendo is starting to piss me off

        • What the fuck do you think Nintendo is pissing you off? You’re overhyping it on purpose! Secondly, you’re ignoring the fact that most of the games from third party developers aren’t on Nintendo systems (Wii and Wii U). You think it’s fair not to have third party games on the Nintendo Switch? Something’s wrong with you. Port or no port, we demand to have games on the Nintendo Switch regardless of party involved.

          Next time, lower your expectations before you make a complete ass of yourself!

          • If it missed Wii and Wii u, chances are I either all ready played it or didn’t want to play it. Why waste time porting an old game over instead of a brand new game? That’s a waste and why it’s a piss over. I’m just getting port this and port that. Nothing new is coming until the sports game hit. No recently new games are hitting switch and it sounds like it’s because the system can’t handle it.

      • Source? All I can find from Overkill and Starbreeze is that it’s in development. There’s no mention of DLC in their press releases, or any articles from gaming news sites I’ve been reading through. Didn’t mention it in the teaser either, just that there’d be lots of content available on the switch. It also wasn’t explicitly titled GOTY edition either like the DLC inclusive copy you can purchase on steam.

  1. This game coming to the Switch was a huge surprise because of its mature them. Even though I have a PC I never got around to playing PD2 but I will once it gets released on the Switch. Maybe this announcement will be the start of more mature themed western 3rd party games coming to the Switch

  2. This is pretty cool, and it’s something I never expected; but this is the same situation as with Skyrim. The average gamer who looks at this is just gonna see another old game being ported to Switch, regardless of the fact that it also just got ported to X1 and PS4. We still haven’t seen anything to prove that the Switch will get current AAA 3rd party games.

    Still, this is good. This, in addition to Skyrim, shows that there’s room for an M-rated library on Switch.

  3. Well this came out of nowhere. I didn’t catch the direct and don’t really have time now but does it have local co-op in handheld mode? That could be fun. Is this game fun? Idk.

    I’ll tell you all one thing though: GTA 5 with on the go local co-op would sell millions. That game still sells really well after all this time. Probably the one “old port” besides Skyrim that could persuade some people to get a Switch.
