Alien: Isolation bursts onto Nintendo Switch in early December.

Feral Interactive confirms that the promising port of Alien: Isolation will hatch on the Nintendo eShop early next month.

Originally developed by Creative Assembly and published by Sega, Alien: Isolation received multiple awards on its release in 2014. The game won particular acclaim for its production design, which beautifully recreates the tone and design of Ridley Scott’s iconic 1979 film, Alien.


The game also bests some of the franchise’s later films with a story that follows the journey of Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda. Set on the remote space station Sevastopol, Amanda must survive a AAA threat: the alien, some deadly androids and the station’s malevolent APOLLO AI.

The Nintendo Switch version also adds gyroscopic aiming, HD rumble and includes all of the game’s DLC content. You can take closer look at the scares in store in a new trailer.

Alien: Isolation will be priced at £29.99 / $34.99 / €34.99 / ¥4400.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
