Get ready to take Jason on the go.
As reported by Variety (of all places), Gun Media’s award-winning asymmetrical multiplayer game Friday The 13th: The Game will indeed be heading to the Nintendo Switch in the form of the Ultimate Slasher Switch Edition.
Daniel Nixon, Gun Media’s Director of Communications, stated that with the help of their partners at Black Tower and Nighthawk, Jason returns to a Nintendo console for the first time in 30 years. Seriously, the original LJN game for the NES was released back in February 1989.
While there’s no info on just what the Ultimate Slasher Switch Edition includes or when it’ll be released (other than a “Spring 2019” window), but it’s safe to assume that all of the previously-released DLC (apart from Tom Savini’s awesome Hellfire Jason) will be included.
And yes, before anyone starts asking/complaining, the mess that’s currently going on with Victor Miller and Horror Inc. is still preventing new content from being made for the game. It sucks, but at least Jason is back with Nintendo.
Friday The 13th: The Game is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
