Shadowrun Trilogy Nintendo Switch 2022 release date Nintendo Direct September 2021 Paradox Interactive Hairbrained Schemes Codeglue

At the September 2021 Nintendo Direct, publisher Paradox Interactive and developers Codeglue and Harebrained Schemes announced that Shadowrun Trilogy is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022, a collection of Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun Dragonfall – Director’s Cut, and Shadowrun Hong Kong – Extended Edition. For those who could use a refresher, Shadowrun Returns originally released for PC in 2013, Dragonfall was DLC for Returns originally released in 2014 and then expanded into a standalone game, and Hong Kong was released in 2015. They are turn-based tactical role-playing games set in a fantasy / cyberpunk hybrid universe.

A Switch listing already exists for Shadowrun Trilogy on the Nintendo website, but you can’t preorder it yet of course. It does offer a breakdown of each game in the collection though, as well as this broader summary: “The Shadowrun Trilogy comprises 3 cult tactical RPG games taking place in a dystopian cyberpunk future in which magic has re-awakened, bringing back to life creatures of high fantasy. Initially created as a tabletop RPG over 30 years ago, this one-of-a-kind setting that has gained a huge cult following during the past three decades.”

In addition to the announcement of Shadowrun Trilogy for Nintendo Switch, the September 2021 Nintendo Direct also had plenty of other surprising RPG news, like release dates for Rune Factory 5, Triangle Strategy, and Yoko Taro’s Voice of Cards. Also, in much weirder, unrelated news, Chris Pratt is Super Mario now.
