Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location released on the Nintendo Switch eShop for North American consoles on June 18. Interestingly, the game received little fanfare, launching alongside a trailer without any sort of prior announcement.
Sister Location is the fifth game in the Five Nights at Freddy’s series and the sixth to reach Nintendo Switch. The game originally launched for PC in October 2016. In all previous FNAF games, players stayed in one location while trying to fend off killer animatronics. Sister Location was the first in the series to diverge from this formula, sending players to different areas to complete a variety of tasks. As a result, it will provide a different experience for Nintendo fans who have only tried out the prior FNAF entries.
At the moment, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location is only available for Nintendo Switch owners in North America. However, Clickteam did confirm that the game will become available in other regions very soon. For now, North American players can purchase the game for $7.99, the same price as the original tetralogy.
Sister Location’s surprise drop on Nintendo Switch
The Five Nights at Freddy’s series initially made its way onto Nintendo Switch in November 2019. That month, the first four games in the series all launched on the same day. Then on May 21, Help Wanted became the fifth FNAF game on Switch, despite being the latest in the series. Now, Sister Location joins the roster as the next (but almost certainly not the last) FNAF title on Switch.
