Hellpoint Updates: Hellpoint is coming to Nintendo Switch this month. There is already a decent fan base for Cradle Games, the brand that offers this game. Let’s discuss this upcoming game.
This is a cosmic horror / sci-fi story, reminiscent of Event Horizon. It is based on the Irid Novo space station. This station was considered the pinnacle of human achievement before it was corrupted by the evil cosmic gods.
Players must control an agent of an AI, and the agent is named the author. The author assigns tasks to other players to uncover the secret behind the merger. Fusion is the event that brought demonic forces to Irid Novo.
Hellpoint puts on horror twists with the help of souls and bonfires. It adds a vertical element to the genre with a jump mechanic, like in Sekiro. Hellpoint has many routes in its maps and therefore favors exploration. There are plenty of modes available here like co-op, split screen, and various PvP modes.
Hellpoint settings also affect gameplay. Irid Novo orbits a black hole, so the station’s position relative to the black hole affects the strength of enemies players face. This makes the atmospheric space station more than just window dressing.
Hellpoint: Physical availability and digital editions
Hellpoint was physically released for Nintendo Switch via Merge Games and publisher tinyBuild Games. This game can be pre-ordered online from websites like Best Buy and GameStop. Physical copies for Nintendo would be available from February 26. A reservation system is underway, and if players want to make sure they get their copy, they can reserve one for themselves.
Not only that, Hellpoint even has its own special edition, which can specifically be purchased through online retailer Signature Edition. The Signature Edition of the game gives out collectibles like an art book, soundtrack, and more.
The game will be available on Nintendo eShop from February 25.
Speaking of platforms, Hellpoint is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux as well.
Hellpoint on Switch suffered from significant bugs and performance issues on last generation PCs and consoles. Frame rates were found to be unstable. It is currently not possible to say how well the game will perform on Switch. Fans hope the developers try to improve the game.
