Pixel Noir porting to Switch

J-RPG inspired game launching on same date for consoles and PC.

The development of Pixel Noir goes on steadily and, after the latest beta for Kickstarter backers and its new features, SWDTech now confirms the development of the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The version for Nintendo’s hybrid Console will include every element introduced on PC, Xbox One and PS4, but you’ll be able to explore and survive Pinnacle City anywhere.

With all of the core features and nice-to-have systems already built and functioning, Pixel Noir has now around 40% of the story implemented within the game, including the entire beginning of the story.

Living on the streets of a shithole like Pinnacle City, there’s only two things to keep you going: A pack of cigarettes and the feeling that there’s more than this.

There was something rotten in that rundown place. You were in over your head, but you were too proud to admit it. It was your pride that killed your partner. With the hospital burned to the ground and nothing to exonerate you, they threw you in jail.

For ten years you were haunted by unanswered questions and unspeakable horror, frightened by what you saw, what you did – and what you could still do. Now you’re scraping by as a private eye, running a business out of a crappy apartment. But a chance comes along to clear your name once and for all. With your sanity at stake, how can you afford not to take it?

There’s no set release date for Pixel Noir yet, but you can find out more and get updates on the Pixel Noir Kickstarter page.
