Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Launches On April 11th For Nintendo Switch
It appears that the long wait for Ninja Theory’s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice for Nintendo Switch is finally almost over. Initially announced as an upcoming port for the Switch earlier this year, the developer has now revealed that the port will be available for purchase on April 11. The title will be available as a digital only download through the Nintendo eShop for $29.99.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice follows a Pict warrior named Senua who journeys to Helheim to speak with the goddess of death, Hela, in order to save the soul of her lover, Dillion. Along the way she must contend with the environment and her own psychosis, which manifests itself as “Furies” throughout the game that toy with Senua and test her resolve.
Fans got a chance to test out Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice on the Nintendo Switch this past weekend at PAX East, with reports suggesting that the game ran surprisingly well given how gorgeous, if troubling, the game can be. Haven’t gotten a chance to play the game yet? Here’s the breakdown from the developer:
“From the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry, comes a warrior’s brutal journey into myth and madness. Set in the Viking age, a broken Celtic warrior embarks on a haunting vision quest into Viking Hell to fight for the soul of her dead lover. Created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull you deep into Senua’s mind.”
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is now available for PC and PlayStation 4, and will launch on Nintendo Switch on April 11th.
