‘Friday the 13th: The Game” Coming to Nintendo Switch This Spring
 

Quote:

“Friday the 13th: The Game” is coming to Nintendo Switch this Spring with the release of “Friday the 13th: The Game Ultimate Slasher Switch Edition,” developer Gun Media tells Variety.

The upcoming edition includes all released content and paid DLC, including every Jason Kill Pack, both Counselor Clothing Packs, and the Emote Party Pack. It does not the include Kickstarter backer exclusive “Savini Jason” character or the backer exclusive clothing pack.

“We’re happy to be bringing ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ to the Nintendo Switch with the help of our partners at Black Tower and Nighthawk. The Nintendo Switch offers a unique experience, in both social settings and on the go, that we feel work very well with ‘Friday the 13th: The Game,'” said Daniel Nixon, Gun Media’s Director of Communications.

“Friday the 13th” was originally funded via Kickstarter and released in 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Last year developer Gun Media confirmed it would no longer be releasing new DLC content to the game due to a legal battle over the “Friday the 13th” franchise instigated by the original screenwriter, Victor Miller. Miller is attempting to reclaim the rights to his original characters that were used in the 1980 original movie and subsequent releases.

I'm sick of these kiddie games. The Switch sucks.

So does Evolve in a Friday the 13th skin.

This reminds me of the sort of ads you'd find in a copy of GamePro circa 1996. I love it.

Yeah I really do like the ad. Makes me miss the 90s gaming scene.

Isn't the game dead? According to the Steam reviews it was full of cheaters and bow empty servers.

I did want to play it.

I also really wanted to play this game but heard it was just broken to all hell? Is it fixed now? Anyone know?

Maybe a Switch release is what it needs to bring it back to life. The balance and gameplay on the PC was atrocious. The cheating was rampant, and the gameplay didn't even come close to Evolve and others in that genre. At least in Evolve the hunters might actually manage to kill the monster.

In Friday the 13th you had no real chance against Jason.

You really weren't supposed to defeat Jason, only escape the map. I've seen lots of players escape (especially when I was playing as Jason :D)

...yup.


Especially if balance and cheating were issues, and they've been rectified.

The game was bad on PC and consoles, putting it on the Switch isn't going to all of a sudden make it a good game. Take the Nintendo cock out of your mouth for once and use some rational thinking.

Right on bro!

I backed this game on Kickstarter. Still have the collectors edition unopened, because they gave everyone digital copies due to delays.

The game SUCKS. I am a huge Ft13th fan, which is why I backed it immediately, but there has never been one time where I enjoyed playing this game. Don't get your hopes up that the Switch version will be good.

Play Dead by Daylight instead, it's awesome and pray they bring that to the Switch. They can't even add content to Ft13th because of legal issues with the ownership of the IP.

If it wasn't an underpowered tablet they wouldn't have to find code tricks to get games that run fine on PC, Xbone, and PS4 to run at a decent framerate on the Switch without sacrificing visual fidelity.
