The new meta game is going to be playing Hello Neighbor, on your Nintendo Switch in portable mode, while you are yourself hiding in your neighbour’s bedroom closet.
Hello Neighbor, tinyBuild’s suburban creep ’em up, is – for a little bit longer, at least – an Xbox One console exclusive. It released for Microsoft’s console, and Windows PC, on December 8th, 2017.
Now developer Dynamic Pixels and publisher tinyBuild, in association with Gearbox Sofware, are bringing Hello Neighbor to the Nintendo Switch and PS4. The game releases on these new platforms on July 27th, 2018, and will come in both retail and digital flavours.
Is the Nintendo Switch retail version of Hello Neighbor going to cost more than the digital version? Yes, probably.
We don’t know for sure, as digital pricing isn’t available yet, but the Switch version – priced at £39.99 / US$39.99 – is going to be more expensive than the PS4 retail version, which will cost just £29.99 / US$29.99. The fact that the Switch retail version costs 25% more than the PS4 boxed version does tend to indicate that the Switch tax is in evidence again.
If you want to save yourself a few quid, there’s currently a tinyBuild publisher sale on Steam, including 34% off the standard version of Hello Neighbor, with 43% off the collector’s edition, which also includes the OST.
