Who doesn’t want to potentially shit themselves on public transport while they hide in a locker?
The best Alien game of all-time might not be getting the sequel everyone wants quite yet, but at least the original is going portable. Feral Interactive, the studio responsible for porting Rome: Total War to iPads, announced that they would be bringing Alien: Isolation to the Switch via a teaser.
There’s not much by way of gameplay, so there’s no scenery or anything juicy to compare. The studio does note that the port will be out sometime this year, however.
It’s interesting timing, with Isolation getting a mobile sequel and the game getting a webseries spin-off earlier this year, although the latter was more a remaking of the original Isolation cut-scenes with some new animations. Still, it shows that there’s commercial intent and interest behind Alien Isolation, which gives me hope that we’ll see a proper sequel to possibly Creative Assembly’s greatest game.
In 2010, a group of Alien fans at Creative Assembly were given the opportunity of a lifetime: making a game set in that iconic sci-fi universe, with the full blessing of franchise owner 20th Century Fox. This wasn’t some non-canon spin-off, but a legitimate part of the Alien series. The result: one of the best horror games of recent years, as well as one of the most faithful film adaptations ever made.Read more
