The Sinking City Switch Launch Date Announced

Developer Frogwares has announced that The Sinking City on Nintendo Switch has an official release date: Thursday, September 12th, 2019. To note though, the Nintendo Switch version of The Sinking City is currently a digital-only edition for now.

Sergey Oganesyan, Communications Manager at Frogwares commented:

We initially wanted to do a physical release – we know lots of players prefer these – but we were eventually forced to put this off for now. We didn’t want to take too long to release the game on the Nintendo Switch, but going into the logistics and distribution of physical editions would push the release back by months. Frogwares is self-publishing this version but we’re not a big company and don’t have the resources to handle such a complex process ourselves. So, we’re focusing on the digital release first and might release a physical edition later.

Frogwares have included a selection of timed pre-order bonuses for the Nintendo Switch edition while also putting together a Deluxe Edition with additional side missions. The standard version will retail for $49.99 while the Deluxe Edition is set for $64.99.

As detailed earlier, The Sinking City on Nintendo Switch is not just a standard port. The team worked on multiple improvements and tweaks based on player feedback.

Serge Chervonnyi, Game Producer Manager said:

We did our best to optimize the game and ensure it runs at a stable 30 frames throughout. We also improved combat a bit to have more weight and feel. Weapons now have new gunshot sounds, improved recoil and new visual effects. We also did our best to improve the game from people’s feedback. So things like crowd behaviour and pedestrian AI has been tweaked along with all-around additional levels of polishing and bug fixing.

Extra care was also taken to make the game available in multiple languages with full VO and text in English, French, German and Russian. 

Text support is available in Spanish, Italian, Czech, Polish, Ukrainian, Turkish, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese.
