Nintendo Switch owners who have been waiting patiently for a chance to get both sexy* and brutal** will be happy to hear that quirky indie time-twisting adventure, The Sexy Brutale, will be arriving on Nintendo’s mobile console on Thursday 7 December.
A crafty blend of Groundhog Day and the Cluedo whodunit board game, with a noir-ish bent, The Sexy Brutale has the player stuck in a time loop in a casino mansion where the other guests have to experience their deaths over and over. Naturally, as it’s a video game, it’s up to you to save the day. Days. Whatever.
The Sexy Brutale was well received when it was released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in April this year, so co-creators Cavalier Game Studios and Tequila Works will be hoping for a similarly warm reception when their game hits the Switch. I haven’t played it myself, but from what I’ve seen it definitely seems a good fit for the hardware’s hybrid form factor.
* In fairness, it’s hardly sexy.
** Or even particularly brutal. People die, sure, but it’s actually quite cute.
