Nearly 6 months ago we learned that Feral Interactive was working on a brand new port of Alien: Isolation for the Nintendo Switch! And now, just two months after the 5th anniversary of one of the best games to grace the Alien franchise, gamers on the Nintendo Switch have the pleasure of being able to experience the events of Sevastopol!
As of today Alien: Isolation is available to purchase from the Nintendo Store (US/UK) for $34.99/£29.99! Weighing in at 17.7 GB, it’s a Digital Download only at the minute, but includes the full set of seven pieces of downloadable content in the price. This new port will also make use of the Switch’s gyroscopic aiming and HD rumble, bringing some Switch specific features to the Isolation experience.
Yesterday Digital Foundry posted up an in-depth look at the graphical differences between Feral Interactive’s Nintendo Switch port and the original PlayStation 4 version of the game. It’s a technical focused look at how the Nintendo Switch port fares and compares against the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. You can watch the video below or check out an abridged written version on EuroGamer.
