BUTCHER out now on Nintendo Switch

Blood-soaked love letter to cult classics now on the eShop

Yesterday’s eShop update saw a huge number of titles added to the Switch’s library and one of those new titles is BUTCHER. Described as a “blood-soaked love letter” to cult classics, such as DOOM and Quake, BUTCHER sees you planning as a cyborg programmed to eradicate the remnants of humanity. With the sole purpose of destroying anything the is able to move, you’ll be equipped with a huge variety of weapons including chainsaws, shotguns and grenades launchers.

As you traverse varied environments such as underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities and ore you’ll find even more ways of bringing humanities’ existence to a swift end; my press release tells me that no death will ever be the same… To get a better idea have a look at the launch trailer!

Some of the core features of BUTCHER are:

  • Ultra-violent uncompromising carnage in the spirit of Doom and Quake (chainsaw included)
  • Release your inner artist, paint the walls with (permanent) blood (up to 4 million pixels available to be painted per level)
  • Use the environment (saws, hooks, lava pits, animals and other) to brutally dispose of your enemies
  • Put your reflexes and patience to the ultimate test
  • Choose from an array of weapons (featuring classics like chainsaw, railgun and the deadly grenade launcher)
  • Soak in the dark atmosphere reinforced by a wicked, heavy soundtrack (while you kick corpses around)
  • Die painfully: melt in lava, become piranha food, get crushed by heavy doors… and more!
