Publishers All In! Games and 505 Games have revealed that Ghostrunner, a cyberpunk parkour title, will be slicing its way onto Switch next month.
The game will be available digitally on the Switch eShop from 27th October. To celebrate the news, a brand new trailer has been released (see above), showing gameplay captured from the Switch itself. The game’s press release says that the title’s gameplay is of “stunning AAA-quality”, and as you’ll see for yourself, it is looking very, very nice on Nintendo’s platform.
Naturally, we’ll need to wait until we get our hands on it before we can test whether or not it feels as good as it looks but until then, here’s an official description:
The game takes place in the future, after a global cataclysm where the remains of humanity live in a tower built by The Architect, who died mysteriously years ago. Everyone knows the truth, no one says it aloud.
The world ruled by The Keymaster is harsh. A person’s worth depends on the category of implants they have, defining their whole lives. The implants—given to them in childhood—determine which social group a person belongs to. If you weren’t lucky enough to get a good life, there is nothing you can do.
It’s no surprise that a rebellion starts.
You are a cyber-warrior, the only one capable of fighting both in the physical world and in cyberspace. Lost and hunted, thrown into the middle of the conflict, you must use this bond with technology to ascend the tower.
As you climb higher, secrets are revealed. The clock starts ticking on a race to uncover the mystery behind the structure that houses humanity’s last hope. Solve the riddle or be killed—there is no other option.
