Alien: Isolation is now on Nintendo Switch, watch the first 16 minutes

The long-awaited Switch port is here, and it looks ungodly scary.

Alien: Isolation is now on Nintendo Switch

Five years after it first terrified unsuspecting gamers, Alien: Isolation is once again released, this time on Nintendo Switch. The long-awaited port lets Switch players experience the game in either big screen or a small one. The latter is, according to critics, even more terrifying.

The game, first released in 2014, is touted as “a masterclass in survival horror, and a bold statement on next-gen gaming” that “represents a strong return to form for an ailing franchise.”

Here’s the official launch trailer for the Nintendo Switch:

Set in the world of Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi thriller, Alien, the game follows you as Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen Ripley.

In the game, you navigate the deck of a spacecraft where a Xenomorph is out doing its bidding. It’s packed with inventive first-person survival dynamics, so there’s plenty of perils to overcome, items to scavenge, and scares to endure. In short, it’s a properly scary time.

IGN released a gameplay tease as well, showing off the first 16 minutes of the game. Check it:
