We are delighted to confirm that Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent's Curse will be coming to Nintendo Switch on 21st September 2018. The game will be available as a retail box edition in Europe, and as a digital download throughout the world.
The Switch is an ideal console for both portable and home gaming, so we have written a user interface that allows players to switch seamlessly between touchscreen for on-the-go gaming, and Joy Con control for when the Switch is docked at home. The game includes full HD 1080p graphics so it looks great either on the device or when played on a television. Additionally, we have included never-seen-before 'Behind the Scenes' movies which unlock as you play - movies which offer an insight into the development approach, choice of locations, and background history behind Broken Sword.
This is the ultimate version - the climax of an amazing journey that started with the Kickstarter campaign that we ran in 2012. Since then we have had the privilege of collaborating closely with you - our community. Nintendo have always been brilliant at creating joyful, gameplay-focussed hardware, which had appealed to a broad audience and it is a great pleasure to be able to bring the game to their Switch platform.
