    To think, Nintendo are notorious for how little M-rated games get on the consoles they do, which is, admittedly, not all their fault nowadays… and now, many of the big name ones are on the Switch.

    Might finally try this game.
    Have it on PC, but never really bothered past tutorial.

    Must buy after Ethan and Hila DLC

    Now too see if all the dlc will come with it, or will it be as gutted as the rest of the console ports…

      If I recall from the Spring Nintendo Direct when this game was revealed, it would come with all the DLC with it.

    Got this free on Steam and would like to have on the Switch but guess it’s gonna cost $59.99/£49.99. If so, pass.

      I actually think it’ll be $30 or $40. I don’t think it was $60 when it came to PS4 and Xbox One.

      plus it comes with all the dlc on switch also

    Q4 2017 can sometimes be in the context of fiscal year rather than calendar year. I wish developers would make this more clear when releasing quarter dates. Although Nintendo.com did say this was a Winter release, so I assume it was coming in early 2018 anyway since Winter begins on December 21st.

    I honestly keep forgetting that this is coming to the Switch. I don’t expect this to sell well because the Payday 2 community kinda died down after they implemented microtransactions a couple years ago.

    Day 1 for me if they get the framerate steady and the game playable.

  • Roto Prime
