Futuristic parkour assassin game Ghostrunner was kind of surprise-announced in September for Nintendo Switch, and then it was delayed just a month later. Now, developers One More Level, 3D Realms, and Slipgate Ironworks and publishers All in! Games and 505 Games have pegged down a new, final release date of Nov. 10 on Switch. That’s not too far off from the Oct. 27 release date it had on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Additionally, the game will still launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at some point.

Those who purchase Ghostrunner on Switch between the release date and Dec. 10 will receive two exclusive “Katana Swords,” one of which is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch platform in particular. The game is said to have been optimized for the hybrid platform, which was the purpose of the delay, and 505 Games and All in! Games say you can expect the following dynamic gameplay:

  • Ascend a dystopian tower: run on walls, deploy an energy-based grappling hook, hijack and ride flying drones, and much more
  • Wield a katana sharp enough to cut through flesh and steel in thrilling one-hit-one-kill combat
  • Fast respawns alleviate frustration to keep players gripped by the twisting narrative

Depending on your tastes as a gamer, Ghostrunner could either be an exciting, visceral time or potentially an exercise in frustration. It sure does look cool though, and screenshots of the game running on Switch (below) are quite promising.
