Friday the 13th: The Game Arrives on Nintendo Switch, Launch Trailer Released
Become (or survive) the ultimate slasher in the complete edition of the game, now available on the hybrid console.

This week marks the long-awaited release of Friday the 13th: The Game on the Nintendo Switch. Originally slated to arrive sometime in the spring, it was announced in June that the title would finally arrive this August and so it has.
Similar to the “Ultimate Slasher Edition” of the game already available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the Switch version, now available on Amazon, includes all currently-released content and paid DLC with the exception of its Kickstarter-backer exclusives, much to the joy of those who supported the game's original crowdfunding effort. The physical retail version also includes an 11"x17" limited-edition poster.
To bring this port to life, Gun Media partnered up with two other companies, which is a standard move for studios that want to bring their games to the portable console. Like most multiplayer games, you will need a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online to play this title. Fortunately, that will only cost you $19.99 per year and it includes a host of other goodies and incentives, making it well worth the commitment, especially if you factor in the inclusion of Jason Voorhees.
