If it can be made to run on a switch maybe it can be made to run on PSVR.

Maybe this will help the game to finally make enough money by Sega's estimation.

I am happy that more people get the chance to play this jewel of a game now that it has been rereleased for the switch.

But a glimpse of the new MMO shooter would have been so nice! That being said- looking at recent developements in online shooters like anthem or destiny 2- they need to put in  a lot of work to not fall in the same traps.

And it needs to be creepy and overwhelming at the same time. Also- give me some crazy new alien designs.

All you need is an Alien planet which has been infected with aliens to make new aliens! Don't let it be on LV426 please. I am done with that planet.

Full press release regarding the game:

Quote
Feral Interactive today announced that Alien: Isolation, the AAA survival horror game, is coming to Nintendo Switch. Originally developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA, Alien: Isolation won multiple awards, and was critically acclaimed for its tense, atmospheric gameplay and fidelity to the production values of the iconic 20th Century Fox film, Alien.

In an original story set fifteen years after the events of the film, players take on the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda, who seeks to discover the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. Marooned aboard the remote space station Sevastopol with a few desperate survivors, players must stay out of sight, and use their wits to survive as they are stalked by the ever-present, unstoppable Alien.

Sevastopol Station is a labyrinthine environment that contains hundreds of hidden items that provide clues to the station’s catastrophic decline. As they explore, players will crawl through air vents, scope out hiding places, scavenge for resources, and deploy tech in a life-or-death struggle to outthink the terrifying Alien, whose unpredictable, dynamic behaviour evolves after each encounter.

Alien: Isolation on Nintendo Switch will feature technologies such as gyroscopic aiming and HD rumble to immerse players in its terrifying world wherever they play.

I don't have a Switch, so...what's "HD rumble"?

Also worth mentioning that they're in discussions still for a physical release - currently planned to be digital only.

I can't help but wonder who the target audience is for ports like this and Resident Evil. When Nintendo are obviously kid-friendly, it makes little sense to put these sorts of games on there. It's amazing what they've done with Witcher but again, why would I want to play it on a handheld with reduced graphics, when I can play it on a massive TV.

I don't have a Switch, so...what's "HD rumble"?

Nothing really. The joy cons have more refined rumble vibrations than you would find in a normal controller. I don't think the rumble is anywhere near as strong as a Dualshock 4.

HD Rumble is a new rumble tech in the switch controllers. Its Eight motors giving a really nice feeling. You can feel the Ice Cubes in the glass.
