Knives Out

The Switch version of free-to-play battle royale game Knives Out is now available via the Nintendo eShop in Japan. It supports Japanese and Chinese language options.

Users who login to the Switch version and clear a mission within the first 15 days of release will receive an exclusive backpack and costume.

Knives Out first launched for iOS and Android devices in November 2017, and has since been downloaded more than 30 million times worldwide. A PC version is also available.

In the Switch version, up to 100 players can compete against each other in the “Hurricane Peninsula” and “War Field” maps. User accounts from the smartphone version can also be synched with the smartphone version.

A PlayStation 4 version of Knives Out is also in development, but a release date has yet to be announced.

Thanks, Famitsu.
