Note that only a digital release is confirmed at present. Limited Run Games has not yet announced a physical copy.

After previously failing to release on Nintendo consoles dating all the way back to 1992, Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition finally appeared on Switch this week. We have the official launch trailer below.

During a live stream today, Limited Run Games showed off the first footage of Night Trap on Switch. We have the relevant recording below.

Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition is coming to Switch, Limited Run Games has announced. A release is tentatively planned for this summer.

There was some talk about Night Trap heading to Switch last year. Screaming Villains apparently was willing to let it happen, but said Nintendo “pulled out two days later for a very random reason.” That reason was never clarified

A Switch version of Night Trap hasn’t come to fruition thus far. Nintendo was apparently open to the idea, but quickly shut the door soon after the go-ahead was given.

Enter Nicalis, one of the premiere third-party publishers on Switch out of the gate. Company boss Tyrone Rodriguez has expressed interest in working with Screaming Villains to bring Night Trap to Switch. It’ll probably take some time for the project to come to fruition – if it even happens at all – but this is a hopeful first step.
