Big Robot Ltd has announced that Sir, You Are Being Hunted: Reinvented Edition will release on Nintendo Switch.
Den of Thieves Games is helping to bring the game to the portable home console, having previously been responsible for porting Defunct and Among the Sleep: Enhanced Edition.
The Kickstarter-backed game is seen as “a genre-defining title in the first wave of survival games” and uses a procedurally-generated environment to drop players into a robot-stalked British countryside. You will need to make your escape from the robot-infested lands using violence, trickery and stealth.
“Nearly a decade on from the original game, it’s a surprise and a wonder to be able to return to our beloved world of robo-murder, tea, and biscuits, and to finally see a Big Robot game appear on console,” explains Big Robot Ltd CEO and founder Jim Rossignol. “This new, remastered title is a standalone game with original features, new controls, new quality of life options, and, of course, modernised visuals.”
Den of Thieves Games lead programmer Anne Wijning adds: “We are very excited about showing the fans what we’ve been working on for so long. I’ve personally played this game since 2014, when it was still in Early Access, and working on this project was a dream-come-true. Our goal at Den of Thieves Games is to reinvent beloved games. More than just a remaster, we want to tackle long-standing design issues as well.”
Sir, You Are Being Hunted: Reinvented Edition will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q1 2022.
