Feral Interactive is bringing Alien: Isolation to Nintendo Switch.

Originally developed by Creative Assembly, Alien: Isolation will be released on Nintendo Switch this year.

Set fifteen years after the events of the film, players take on the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda, who is looking for the truth regarding her mother’s disappearance.

In the game she is stranded with a few others on the space station Sevastopol, where a dangerous creature stalks the halls.

Your best bet to stay alive in the game is to try and find hiding places while you scavenge for resources. Air vents provide a somewhat safe place as you navigate the ship, and try to outwit the Alien. Be careful: the creature is highly unpredictable, and its behavior evolves after every encounter.

Alien: Isolation on Nintendo Switch will feature gyroscopic aiming and HD rumble, which sounds as though it will make the game even scarier. Sometimes, there’s nothing more frightening when playing a game, than when a controller starts rumbling as something draws near.

Originally released in 2014, a release date for Switch other than 2019 was not provided.
