The Enter The Gungeon Nintendo Switch version will be released in the Americas on December 14, 2017, according to a tweet from the game’s developers.

If you enjoy dungeons and shooting stuff in dungeons, then Enter the Gungeon might just be the game for you. You can select from one of four Gungeoneers, each with their own unique abilities to bring to the table. A second gamer can enter the fray and elect to play as the Cultist, a crack shot with a purple robe and a mildly unsettling smile.

No price for the Nintendo Switch version of the game has been announced. Aside from its cost, another question remains. Enter the Gungeon is a twin-stick shooter, and the Joy-Con controllers only feature a single analog stick each. While it’s certainly possible for the game to use four controllers for two people (and some users on the /r/EnterTheGungeon subreddit speculate that it might be possible), it seems more likely that you’d need to have four Joy-Cons if you intend to play the game in co-op. Even when you discount the difficulties of playing a twin-stick shooter with only a single stick, it’d be rather difficult to cram all of the game’s abilities onto the buttons of a single Joy-Con.

The game has been available on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for some time now. Enter The Gungeon Nintendo Switch version will release in the Americas on December 14, in Europe on December 18, and in Japan on December 21. There’s no word yet on the price, but odds are it will be around the same as it is on other platforms – $14.99 or your regional equivalent.

What do you think of the Enter the Gungeon Nintendo Switch version? Do you think the platform will be a good way to play the game or is it better to play it on another platform? Let us know in the comments below!

I’ve had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven’t stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs – I’ve tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I’m always looking to try more!
