Announced back during April’s Nintendo Direct, Overkill Software’s crime themed co-op FPS title was confirmed to be coming to Nintendo’s hybrid system, and after months of silence (apart from a brief development update from the devs), it gets a release date at last. Publisher Starbreeze Studios has confirmed that Payday 2 will release on the Nintendo Switch on February 23 in Europe, while the Americas get it a bit later, on the 27th. The game will be available as both physical and digital versions (distributed by 505 Games).
The game has you (alongside other human players or AI) engage in heists and strategize to steal valuables from banks and similar high security locations. It originally launched for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC back in 2013 and got a PS4 & XB1 version a couple of years later. Will you be picking it up for on-the-go bank robbing?
