Cat burglars, lock pickers and safe crackers assemble.
Developer Studio Size Five Games, and publishing hero Curve Digital have today announced that the celebrated cybercrime caper, The Swindle has today released on the Nintendo Switch. For those who didn’t know, The Swindle, which previously released on PC and Xbox One and PS4 puts you into an intense game of cat and mouse in which players must break into buildings, loot stacks of dough and hotfoot it from the police across a gorgeously drawn Steampunk London. Dan Marshall, Founder of Studio Size Five Games, recently had this to say about the games launch on Nintendo Switch:
“I’m delighted to see The Swindle make its way to the Nintendo Switch. Now wannabe thieves can while away the hours cooking up perfect robberies either sat at home or dilly-dallying about the place on a train or whatever. The Swindle was designed around that ‘just one more go’ vibe and it’s nice to know that leaving the house is no longer a barrier to entry to that. In many ways, the Switch is the perfect format for the game.”
With each level in The Swindle being procedurally generated, this allows for the security of patrolling robots, vigilant security cameras and keen-eyed guards to all have different yet subtle changes to way the survey the given area. Adding some extra tension towards every playthrough of each level. Additionally, the player access to an airship high above London, which acts as their base, from which they can kit out their thief with the tools, skills and gadgets necessary to put off even of the most daring of video game heists.
If you are interested in picking up the game, be sure to head over to the Nintendo eShop, where you can find The Swindle for £14.99 / $14.99 / €14.99,
