Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Ninja Theory’s 2017 action-adventure title, will soon be released for the Nintendo Switch as announced in today’s Nintendo Direct.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has been released previously for PC, PS4, and XBox One. The games story revolves around it’s title character, Senua, her quest to save the soul of her dead lover, and her “curse”, voices and hallucinations that challenge her every action. The developers took some very interesting approaches to the games narrative by utilizing both motion capture and live-action actors in cut scenes, as well as consulting with neuroscientists and those suffering from psychosis to accurately portray Senua’s “curse”. It was both commercially and critically a success, and won many awards both in and outside of the world of gaming being recognized not only as a game but as a work of art.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will launch on Nintendo Switch in spring of 2019.
