If you enjoy busting ghosts and you’re not too keen on the latest Ghostbusters game, you’re in luck – Dead End Job will be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018. The game was already announced for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Dead End Job is all about Hector Plasm, an employee at supernatural exterminators Ghoul-B-Gone. Spooky creatures are infesting the buildings of your clients and it’s up to you to blast them to pieces and suck up the remains with your trusty vacuum. Capturing more ghosts means that you can really charge your client the big bucks at the end of the day. An announcement trailer from March of this year will give you an idea of the gameplay and overall theme of the title:

The game is played as a twin-stick shooter with a top-down perspective. The levels in the game are procedurally-generated which should help enhance the replayability of the game. You won’t have to take on the undead by yourself, either – the game features drop-in drop-out couch co-op if you’d like to bring a friend along for the ride. Even if you play solo, you’ll have a companion by your side – your former partner and mentor who went out to work one night and didn’t quite make it back to the office. Now you (and maybe your friends!) are out to bust ghosts with the best of them and work towards the coveted Employee of the Month award at Ghoul-B-Gone.

Dead End Job will be heading to the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018 alongside a PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 release. In the meantime, you can learn more about the game by swinging by its official website.
