Dusk, a retro-styled FPS which takes inspiration from games like DOOM, Quake, and Half-Life, is coming to Nintendo Switch three years after its initial release.

According to the Nintendo eShop, the game will launch on October 28 for $20 and will require 2.7 GB to download. Dusk originally launched on PC in 2018 and, despite receiving mostly positive reviews and outselling publisher expectations, it’s never been ported to consoles.

The official description of the game from New Blood Interactive is below:

Dusk reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be mastered… if you’re to survive ’til dawn. Inspired by Doom, Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage, and all your ’90s favorites, while featuring a soundtrack by metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult,” reads an official pitch of the game. “In three distinct campaign episodes hand-crafted from straight outta the ’90s, players will battle through an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces and attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the Earth. Featuring a vast arsenal of badass weaponry including sickles, swords, crossbows, rifles, dual-wielded and double-barreled shotguns, and incredibly necessary grenade and rocket launchers, DUSK brings unapologetic retro action from start to finish.

Preorders on the physical edition from Limited Run Games were supposed to have closed on October 3 at 11:59 PM EDT, but as of the time of writing New Blood’s Dave Oshry was reporting that preorders were still open hours after the window should’ve been closed. If you were unable to secure your preorder, Limited Run claims that Best Buy may be receiving a small number of copies with different box art but that it’s not a guarantee.
