Control coming to Nintendo Switch thanks to cloud gaming

Internet connection required

Control, is arriving on the Switch, Nintendo announced during a Mini Direct presentation. Control Ultimate Edition – Cloud Version is out there today.

In order to play the sport, you’ll need a Nintendo switch Account to access cloud service and “a persistent high-speed internet connection to play the sport .” (It includes similar technology to Stadia and Luna, but Control ’s cloud game is going to be handled by Ubitus.) Any interruption within the connection will cause it to disconnect in minutes. so as to shop for the sport, players are going to be required to use a launcher application to check that their connection can handle its requirements for five minutes. it’ll also require buying an Access Pass, priced at $39.99.

Released last year, Control blends confident storytelling with action-based gameplay and a bizarre, unsettling atmosphere. the sport stars Jesse, the new head of the Federal Bureau of Control, as she investigates FBC headquarters and defends it from the reality-bending Hiss. Control Ultimate Edition includes previously released expansions the inspiration and AWE.

There’s also some bad news therein Square Enix’s Bravely Default 2 has been delayed until 26 February, which may be a shame because it was poised to be Nintendo’s biggest third-party exclusive this Christmas. On a more positive note, there are new Switch versions of No More Heroes 1 and a couple of, as preparation for the third game’s release next year (Travis Strikes Again was just a spin-off). Then rounding things off you’ve got WayForward’s Bakugan: Champions Of Vestroia on November 3, Tropico 6 on November 6, and Story Of Seasons: Pioneers Of Olive Town on March 23.

Control is already available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One
