Kingdom Come: Deliverance is coming to Nintendo Switch

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Nintendo Switch Warhorse Studios Saber Interactive Koch Media

Publisher Koch Media and developer Warhorse Studios have announced at last that open-world action RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance is coming to Nintendo Switch in collaboration with Saber Interactive. This follows up on a listing at the Nintendo website in Japan from back in January that indicated the game would come to the platform. The original 2018 release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC received a good, if not great critical reception, and now it’s Nintendo Switch players’ turn to be mildly entertained. A release date has not been announced yet.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance has a familiar setup: Henry is the son of a blacksmith whose friends, family, and whole village is wiped out, and now he’s going on a non-linear adventure across a huge world for revenge. Melee combat and stealth each play a part in gameplay, and there are plenty of opportunities to develop your character through perks, skills, and forging and upgrading equipment.

Saber Interactive has made a name for itself in creating impressive ports of games that otherwise pose technical challenges for Nintendo Switch, such as The Witcher 3: Wild HuntCrysis Remastered, and its own title, SnowRunner. So if anyone can be trusted with bringing Kingdom Come: Deliverance to Switch, it’s Saber.

And speaking of which, Saber Interactive also shared a gameplay trailer for another of its titles today, Evil Dead: The Game.
