Get ready to terrorize the beach on new platforms — the Maneater Steam and Nintendo Switch release date has been announced and it's bringing this fearsome shark to new platforms next week.

If you haven't yet played Maneater, you've missed out on a pretty cool game. No, this isn't about the hit 1982 song from Hall & Oates; rather, Maneater is a game that's all about playing a massive shark that preys on people in an open-world environment. That's not to say there aren't some challenges, mind — not everyone is going to let you chomp them to bits without fighting back!

Maneater has already been out on PC (via the Epic Games Store), PlayStation, and Xbox — now, it's all set to arrive on new platforms next week!
