Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is bringing its sombre adventure to Nintendo Switch

Senua returns to the darkness

Ninja Theory’s award-winning adventure title Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is coming to Nintendo Switch.

The 2017 release, which was acclaimed for its atmospheric Norse world and dark storytelling, tells the tale of a young Pict warrior, Senua, who must embark on a psychologically fraught journey into Helheim. There she hopes to rescue the soul of her dead lover, which has been claimed by the goddess Hela.

Interestingly, Microsoft owns the rights to the Hellblade IP now, following their acquisition of Ninja Theory, so it seems that Nintendo and Xbox are palling up for this port.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice launches on Nintendo Switch this spring.
