There are a few games that stand out in this weekâ€™s Nintendo Switch eShop update, and not because of our familiarity with them â€” but because they have some seriously weird names. Between Immortal Redneck, Suicide Guy and Three Fourths Home, eShop has some eye-catchingly titled new games in its library.
The most anticipated of these is Immortal Redneck, a game that plays nothing like it sounds. First released on Windows PC back in 2017, Immortal Redneck is referred to as an â€śold school FPSâ€ť by its developer, so expect the kind of first-person action popularized by games like Doom and Quake. Thereâ€™s also procedurally generated dungeons and the fear of permanent death … oh, and the whole thing takes place in Egypt, by the way.
None of this sounds like the kind of game that would star a redneck, let alone an immortal one. But, yep, thatâ€™s the player character in this game â€” a Southerner who comes back to life ready to shoot up those pyramids. From the sounds of the Steam reviews for the PC version, that redneck is a funny, charming lead; the writing helps the whole game take on a more lighthearted tone than anyone would expect, according to fans of the original release.
Now that itâ€™s on Switch â€” with a nice icon and everything! â€” it sounds like players are excited to have another arcade-y shooter, like Immortal Redneck, available on the go.
Hereâ€™s the full list of whatâ€™s out on Switch this week:
