Nintendo Switch Gameplay Trailer Unveiled for Alien: Isolation
Feral Interactive is getting ready to launch this title by year’s end.

It’s been a couple of months since we’ve had any significant updates regarding Alien: Isolation on the Nintendo Switch, but we can finally catch a glimpse of some actual gameplay footage of the title in the embedded video above. It concludes with mentioning that all previously-released DLC is included and that the game is coming sometime before the end of the year.
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.
Creative Assembly, the original developer behind this title, truly put together a terrifying masterpiece that harkens back in a big way to Ridley Scott’s 1979 film, Alien. The team was obviously heavily inspired by that movie, including some of the other entries in the series, as the game’s environments and story elements pay tribute all throughout.
While it’s rather silly there still isn’t a firm drop date yet, especially since we’re in the month of November now, it’s reassuring to at least know Alien Isolation’s release is imminent. Thus far, there is absolutely no indication a physical release is coming for this title, so it’s relatively safe to assume at this point that the game's presence on Nintendo’s hybrid console will be digital-only.
