To say nothing of 2020 itself, Switch owners have been going through hell recently and no, we don’t mean the lack of big Nintendo Directs by that. Having seen DOOM Eternal’s launch back in December, Cradle Games’ sci-fi action-RPG Hellpoint is now confirmed for release next month, arriving digitally on February 25th (and physically a day later).
Hellpoint is best described as a Souls-like game that offers an “intensely atmospheric dark sci-fi setting”. We’ll be exploring Irid Novo, a derelict space station filled with bizarre enemies and mysteries to uncover. As you’d expect for a Souls-like, it’s going be a tough time and you’ll be up against the twisted Cosmic Gods. It also features online story co-op and PvP for those seeking out a new multiplayer game.
Launched last July for PS4, PC and Xbox One, it saw mixed reviews but on Steam at least, user reception has been positive. Publishers tinyBuild have confirmed the Switch port will include “all post-release features and improvements” and physical pre-orders have been live for several months, offering a standard release and “signature edition” that includes an art book, soundtrack and more.
Hellpoint will be available for $34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99. eShop pre-orders have not gone live yet but you can pre-order physically at Signature Edition Games.
