The popular solo and co-op adventure game, Gotham Knights, developed by WB Games Montreal, appears to be making its way to the Nintendo Switch. The news comes from an update to the game's official listing by the US Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), which included a previously unannounced Nintendo Switch version.
Speculation has arisen on the Gaming Leaks and Rumours Subreddit that this announcement may be connected to an upcoming Nintendo Direct presentation. Nintendo traditionally airs a showcase in September, and it would make sense for a blockbuster game like Gotham Knights to be part of the lineup. While there is no official confirmation yet, the updated ESRB listing is a promising development.
Global ratings boards have a history of leaking unannounced projects, and this glimmer of a Nintendo Switch release could potentially open the doors to a whole new audience for Gotham Knights. The game was initially considered underrated upon its launch, receiving a primarily underwhelming response from reviewers. However, it was also praised as a “dynamic, hard-hitting adventure” that emerged from the shadows of Rocksteady's beloved Arkham series, according to a review from GamesHub.
Despite its lack of originality, Gotham Knights provides a compelling experience with intriguing character interpretations and a persistent sense of dread as players delve into case files to save Gotham. A re-release on the Nintendo Switch may lead to a re-evaluation of the game, allowing it to shine and showcase its fun, lively adventure, strong characters, and satisfying battles.
The native performance of the game on the Nintendo Switch, which has less power compared to other platforms, might present some challenges. However, fans eagerly await further details from WB Games Montreal on how they will handle this transition. As the months go by, more information is expected to be revealed about the potential release of Gotham Knights on the Nintendo Switch platform.
