Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice for Nintendo Switch £24.99 on the Nintendo Eshop (Digital Only)

28
Posted 2nd Apr
This critically acclaimed game releases on April 11th and is going to be £24.99. Such a reasonable price, for what looks like an absolutely gorgeous game. Nice to see the Switch tax hasn't been applied here. The game has motion controls support and runs amazingly well on Switch. You can see some footage here

Game description from the US eshop:

A journey into myth and madness

From the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry comes a warrior’s brutal journey into myth and madness.

Set in the Viking age, a broken Celtic warrior embarks on a haunting vision quest into Viking Hell to fight for the soul of her dead lover.

Created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull you deep into Senua’s mind.

The Switch would be a lot more popular if they did new releases around this price. I have been tempted to get one but the £35/£40 for a game massively puts me off

This is a port of an old game but I do get your point. The expensive games are mostly Nintendo's originals. Capcom have a nerve charging £29.99 for Resident Evil 4, when it was released on PS4 & XB1 for £19.99. Nice to see these publishers aren't greedy though

Did you look at the footage I posted? People are raving about how well it runs on Switch, calling it a technical marvel.

Awesome, let me know what you think King 👑
Its not much of a deal being digital only at RRP, but I will get it most likely from South Africa as they're usually cheaper

It runs quite well they showed it off at PAX[Video]


Looks decent, just hope it's not running of a PC behind the scenes...

Haha you cynical sod
Good price, shame the game is so crushingly dull
Such a soul destroyingly boring game. I was paid to play this and couldn't do it. It's painful - honestly that bad.
So an RRP “deal”?

Hmmm.

Switch sales are very strong, don't think they have a problem with needing to be more popular

I'm in favour of cheaper games though, especially these ports

Yet apparently they're not hitting their targets...hence the rumours of soon to be announced switch mini & pro gathering more speed - Which I personally think will be a bad idea so soon in the switch's life.

That would be a terrible idea. If this isn't hitting the targets, then the targets are wrong!

I couldn't disagree more, this game is a fantastic piece of storytelling, a complete breath of fresh air from all the multiplayer, free to play, battle royale games that are hoging the market at the moment. If you are into single player game grab this on any platform it's great, the combat you actually have to think about you can't just mash your way though, the graphics are amazing and the the sound is some of the most emerisve I have heard in any game. Definitely worth a buy in my opinion.
I started playing this on my ps4, I got bored very quickly.

Nintendo games haven't gone up in price for years. I don't know what you expect to happen. When considering inflation, Nintendo games are at some of the cheapest prices they have ever been, especially when looking back at snes and n64 prices!

£35/40 is standard across all consoles. I got 150 hours out of Zelda so £40 felt like a bargain, but to each their own.

I don't put Nintendo in the category of Xbox or PlayStation when you look at the amount of title games that are available and the PvP platform they offer. Even console games are expensive at that price. PC is best value for money but you've got to invest in the hardware initially

Okay, I guess I don't understand your argument then if you think all games are expensive and that Nintendo games are not comparable to game on other platforms.

I don't class Nintendo in the same bracket as Xbox and Playstation. I would put it along side say PSP which I do not expect to pay that amount for a game. I was also stating that I think games are very expensive in general.

I understand your point. I just don't agree. If you value all Nintendo titles in line with psp games then that's fine. I just think it's a bit odd

Trust me you don't. If he's a game tester paid to play game it means you're playing the same level/chapter over and over again picking out little pieces and writing reports on them. It might be exciting at first but then you just get fed up with it and by the time game releases you don't want to play it anymore
