Timing can be a funny thing. I had been waiting for a chance to pick up Freedom Finger on a sale for a while. Not cause it’s not worth full price, but cause my backlog is enormous. So I try and be a thrifty gamer when I can. And I recently managed to get Freedom Finger for a great discount on Steam. Which is why this announcement is so painful for me. Now it’s been announced by Super Rare Games (SRG) that this crazed SHMUP is coming physically to Nintendo Switch. In other words, I should have waited a bit longer to pick the game up. Cause I definitely want this edition!

Freedom Finger | Physical Info

Like usual, this edition of Freedom Finger has all the SRG swag, including cards, manual and more. If you’re somehow not familiar with the crazy game, just keep on reading the full press release below. Maybe it’ll be worth your while to check out Super Rare Games in the coming days to pick up a copy. I know I’ve personally found some gems there.
