Pull Off Heists In The Swindle On Nintendo Switch Next Month

Curve Digital and Studio Size Five Games have announced that The Swindle will release on Nintendo Switch, a steampunk cybercrime caper about breaking into buildings, stealing oodles of cash and hot-footing it from the police.

You must platform your way across every level, using lo-fi stealth mechanics to make sure that you can secure the loot.

With the buildings being randomly-generated, no two heists will be the same. You must make your way past patrolling robots, sneak beneath vigilant security cameras and evade keen-eyed guards.

Between heists, you will return to your rickety airship high above London where you can modify your thief with new skills, tools and other advanced technological horrors.

“The Nintendo Switch release of The Swindle will speak to the most nefarious of players, I suspect,” Studio Size Five Games founder Dan Marshall explains.

“Taking their Switch out into public will present the rarest of opportunities: robbery in broad daylight. We hope players seize the moment and enjoy the game in these bite-sized portions as well as at home.”

Curve Digital product manager Jakub Klitenik adds: “The Swindle is a firm office favourite at Curve. I can’t wait for Nintendo Switch players to get a taste for the dark side of crime capers and risk it all for the big score. There’s every chance it will steal the hearts of Switch players around the world.”

The Swindle will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on October 11th, priced at £14.99 (€14.99/$14.99) with a 20 percent pre-order discount.
