Screencheat: Unplugged coming to Nintendo Switch

You can’t see me.

Screencheat: Unpluggeda fully remastered and revamped version of the chaotic party split-screen first-person shooter where everyone is invisible, will blast its way to Nintendo Switch on Nov. 29, 2018. Samurai Punk’s re-release features plenty of improvements over the original release, as well as alterations tailored just for the Nintendo Switch, including:

  • a graphical overhaul with more vibrant and clear visuals designed with the portable screen in mind
  • new and remixed maps
  • remastered weapons
  • an updated UI
  • full support for single Joy-Con and dual Joy-Con
  • Nintendo Switch Pro Controller inputs
  • An entirely new soundtrack introducing a medley of energetic tracks to enjoy.

Wield a wacky arsenal of one-hit kill weapons ranging from blunderbusses and hobby horses to candelabras and explosive teddy bears. Since all characters are invisible, players must watch their opponents’ screens to know their locations; screen-cheating is not only encouraged, it’s necessary. The 11 levels are divided into color-coded areas filled with memorable landmarks, allowing positions to be pinpointed with ease.

Managing director of Samurai Punk, Nicholas McDonnel has said of the re-release, “Screencheat is a special party game that puts an inventive spin on a familiar experience, (…) Our team are huge fans of the Switch, and its multiplayer focus in particular, so creating this new version of the game made perfect sense.”

Screencheat: Unplugged will retail for $12.99/€11.99/£10.79/$17.99 via the Nintendo eShop, where it is now available for pre-order with a limited-time 25% discount.
