Surgeon Simulator, a rather silly simulation game where players try to execute medical procedures with less-than-ideal controls, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch as Surgeon Simulator CPR according to a news post on the game's Steam Community page and a press release from the developer.

Whether you're a dextrous gamer or a ham-handed newbie, you'll probably end up killing a few (dozen) patients in Surgeon Simulator. The game assigns you relatively straightforward operating procedures like a heart transplant and more fantastical fare like a brain transplant in space. Unfortunately, the controls are rather difficult for precision medical work. This can make successfully completing an operation a challenge unto itself.

A trailer on the game's YouTube channel cheekily alluded to the Switch while not telling us much else.

On a number of platforms already, the game will be joining the Nintendo Switch as Surgeon Simulator CPR. (The CPR stands for "Co-op Play Ready.") Players can call upon a second surgeon to help them out with some of the particularly perturbing procedures. As expected, the Switch version of the game will include all of the original operations alongside the eye & teeth transplants and the highly-classified alien autopsy mode.

If you don't yet already own Surgeon Simulator, you can pick it up on Steamthe Humble Store, or on GOG for the PC. The Nintendo Switch version of the game with co-op support will be arriving sometime in the Fall of 2018.
