Samurai Punk today announced that Screencheat: Unplugged, a fully remastered and revamped version of the chaotic party split-screen first-person shooter where everyone is invisible, is coming to Nintendo Switch on November 29, 2018 for $12.99 / €11.99 / £10.79 / A$17.99. Pre-orders are available now on the Nintendo eShop with a limited-time 25% discount.
Screencheat: Unplugged features a myriad of improvements over the original release, as well as alterations tailored just for the Nintendo Switch, including: a graphical overhaul with more vibrant and clear visuals designed with the portable screen in mind, new and remixed maps, remastered weapons, an updated UI, full support for single Joy-Con, dual Joy-Con, and Nintendo Switch Pro Controller inputs, and an entirely new soundtrack introducing a fresh and mischievous medley of energetic tracks to enjoy.
Wield a wacky arsenal of one-hit kill weapons ranging from blunderbusses and hobby horses to candelabras and explosive teddy bears. Since all characters are invisible, players must watch their opponents’ screens to know their locations; screen-cheating is not only encouraged, it’s necessary. The 11 levels are divided into color-coded areas filled with memorable landmarks, allowing positions to be pinpointed with ease.
Screencheat: Unplugged touts a range of recognizable game modes, like My First Deathmatch and Hillcampers, as well as decidedly less-familiar ones, such as Murder Mystery and the confetti-filled piñata-based experience Capture the Fun, which use the game’s distinctive premise in fascinating ways. This variety is reflective of the full experience, which is brimming with customization options allowing players to tune the experience to their personal tastes.
Screencheat: Unplugged will feature English, French, Russian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, and Korean language options with Simplified Chinese and Japanese being added in an upcoming patch.
