Alien: Isolation getting a physical release on Switch
It’s taken quite some time, but Alien: Isolation is finally receiving the physical treatment on Switch.
Alongside the standard version, there’ll be a couple of special editions. With the VHS Classic Edition, buyers will receive a VHS-style box and slipcover alongside a steelbook and copy of the game. Also planned is the Collection Collector’s Edition featuring the VHS Classic Edition contents, plus a poster, soundtrack, and model of the Sevastopol Space Station.
Alien: Isolation made it to Switch at the very end of 2019. However, thus far it’s only been available on the eShop.
Below is an official overview:
When she left Earth, Ellen Ripley promised her daughter she would return home to celebrate her 11th birthday. She never made it.
Fifteen years later, Amanda Ripley learns that the flight recorder from her mother’s ship has been recovered. Amanda enters Sevastopol space station to finally solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance, only to confront an unknown menace.
Engage in a terrifying quest for survival as you navigate the labyrinthine Sevastopol station. Unprepared and underequipped, you will need all your wits and daring to get out alive.
A game that returns to the roots of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror masterpiece, using its atmosphere, art direction and production values to deliver the same terrifying thrills.
Explore Sevastopol station and scavenge for hidden resources, crafting items and tech to improvise weapons and deterrents against the ultimate threat.
To evade the Alien as it hunts you down, make calculated moves and use your environment, from crawling through ventilation ducts to hiding in the shadows.
Loaded with all seven DLCs including ‘Last Survivor’, a recreation of Ellen Ripley’s final mission on board the Nostromo.
From gyroscopic aiming to HD rumble, Nintendo Switch technologies will keep you immersed in the horror.
Pre-orders for the physical versions of Alien: Isolation for Switch start on May 26, 2023. Limited Run Games will be taking reservations here.
