We’ve got some great news for fans of Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation with the announcement that the title is coming to the Nintendo Switch at some point this year! The game was briefly shown during Nintendo Direct at E3. There is no indication whether this is a physical release or as a digital download, but we’ll keep you posted about this when it becomes known.

Alien: Isolation is set fifteen years following the events of the original Alien film and follows Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen Ripley, in her search to find the flight recorder of the doomed Nostromo ship, where her mother served as the warrant officer. Her search takes her to Sevastopol Station, an isolated space station owned by the Seegson Corporation, where the flight recorder is presumed to be located. However, soon after her arrival, Ripley realizes finding this item is the least of her worries as a deadly alien begins hunting her and others throughout the station.
