The Shadowrun Trilogy Is Coming to Switch in 2022

By | September 23, 2021

The Shadowrun Trilogy is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022.

The collection of cult classic RPGs feature turn based combat, branching narrative paths, and more. They take place in a dystopian future, and are described as, “cyberpunk-meets-fantasy.”

Paradox Interactive’s trilogy includes Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun Dragonfall – Director’s Cut, and Shadowrun Hong Kong – Extended Edition. The trilogy is already available on PC.

The games take place in locations across the globe, including Seattle, Berlin, and Hong Kong. The trailer showed off combat reminiscent of XCOM. In our original Shadowrun Returns review, we called the game “good,” saying, “the light tactical combat has enough depth to make it a worthwhile adventure.”

The series was originally created as a tabletop RPG more than 30 years ago. About a decade ago, the series came back in the form of new, single player RPGs. The games were released originally in 2013, 2014, and 2015.
