Prior to Red Dead Redemption 2‘s release last year, gamers had to quench their thirst for cowboy western games with either 2010’s Red Dead Redemption or 2013’s Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger, the latter of which was unique for its first-person perspective and cel-shaded graphics.
Publisher Techland has announced that Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger will be releasing for the Nintendo Switch later this year on 10 December 2019 at the price of US$19.99 (or roughly RM83+). It will feature upgrades like Motion Control and HD rumble support.
Techland producer Wojciech Kuśnierz said:
“This is our homage to Wild West tales, an epic and violent journey of a ruthless bounty hunter on the trail of the West’s most notorious outlaws.
Blurring the lines between man and myth, this adventure made of memorable encounters, unveils the untold truth behind some of the greatest legends of the Old West.
Our Call of Juarez: Gunslinger journey really took us places, and we all agree the game is perfect for the Nintendo Switch.
It actually feels like the Switch was made for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.“
For gamers who didn’t have a PS3 or Xbox 360, Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger was one of the only cowboy western-themed games they could play on the PC. Add that to the fact that it’s a pretty good game by itself, it’s no wonder that Techland is bringing it back for a new generation on the Nintendo Switch.
