Friday the 13th coming to pop heads on Nintendo Switch

Remember when Night Trap was too much for The Big N?

Gun Media has announced that their clunky survival title Friday the 13th: The Game is to make its debut on the Nintendo Switch, allowing Jason Voorhees to take his camp counselor killing skills on-the-go.

For those yet to check out this 2017 release, Friday the 13th features up to seven players as luckless camp counselors, who must complete a series of takes to escape Camp Crystal Lake, whilst an eighth player stalks them all as dead, not-really-dead, dead again, and then undead psychopath Jason Voorhees.

“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,” said Gun Media’s Daniel Nixon in a chat with Variety. “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“.

The Ultimate Slasher Switch Edition will include the main game, along with all previous DLC add-ons (but not the Kickstarter backer rewards) and is expected to release sometime in Spring, which gives you enough time to revisit the entire movie series beforehand… or just Part VI: Jason Lives, which is objectively the best entry.
