Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite finally get a long-awaited game that was announced for the Switch platform in 2018. Specifically, and after three years of waiting, Switch and Switch Lite, and soon the Nintendo Switch OLED, become Dusk, a retro first-person shooter that pays homage to games like LOSS, earthquake, and Half-life.
According to Nintendo eShop, Dusk is finally coming to various Nintendo Switch models on October 28, 2021, priced at $ 20, which is what it costs on other platforms. In other words, there is no Nintendo Switch tax as it sometimes is. On Nintendo Switch, the game will require 2.7 GB and support all three game modes, but will unfortunately only be available in English and nothing else.
As for the game itself, it debuted in 2018 via David Szymanski and New Blood Interactive via PC and PC only. And it is still the only platform on which it is available. Upon release, the game was greeted warmly by critics, who collectively gave it a rating of 88 on Metacritic. In the meantime, it is understood that the game has also sold quite well, especially compared to its budget and the expectations of the publisher.
“Dusk reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be brought under control … if you are to survive until dawn. Inspired by Doom, Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage and all your ’90s favorites, while featuring a soundtrack from metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult, “reads an official pitch from the game.” In three hand-crafted campaign episodes straight out of the ’90s, players will battle an onslaught of mystical cultists, possessed militants, and even darker forces and attempt to uncover what lies beneath the Earth. Equipped with a vast arsenal of badass weapons including sickles, swords, crossbows, rifles, double and twin barrel shotguns, and incredibly necessary grenade launchers and rocket launchers, DUSK brings a Shameless retro action from start to finish.
