Sniper Elite titles shoot their way to Nintendo Switch this year

Scope up, Switch fans! Sniper Elite V2 Remastered and Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition are both coming to Switch this year.

Rebellion Developments, developer of the Sniper Elite franchise, has announced that the tactical shooter will land on a Nintendo console for the first time. And it’s quite the twofer with the second and third games of the series. Now you can gun for Hitler’s head (or knees, testicles, etc.) on the go!

Rebellion provided details on each release following their respective trailers below.

Fans can return to Berlin and revisit an epic campaign set in the final moments of World War 2. It will introduce new playable characters, a brand new photo mode, expanded online multiplayer, as well as all the content ever released for the game.

This feature-complete experience includes all the additional content ever released for the game, and Switch-exclusive local wireless multiplayer and motion controls.

It was also announced that the next mainline title following Sniper Elite 4 is in development. Added details are to come in 2020, but here’s hoping these ports are a sign of more sniping to come. With the lack of shooters on the Switch, this could pay off big for Rebellion. Let us know if you plan to pick up these titles in the comments below.
