    Yet another port is heading to the Nintendo Switch, this time it's the western-themed first person shooter Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. It was originally released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC back in 2013 but the Switch version has been optimized for the console with features like Motion Control and HD rumble. A brand-new trailer has been released by the publisher Techland:


    “This is our homage to Wild West tales, an epic and violent journey of a ruthless bounty hunter on the trail of the West’s most notorious outlaws. Blurring the lines between man and myth, this adventure made of memorable encounters, unveils the untold truth behind some of the greatest legends of the Old West. Our Call of Juarez: Gunslinger journey really took us places, and we all agree the game is perfect for the Nintendo Switch. It actually feels like the Switch was made for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger“ - said Wojciech Kuśnierz, Producer at Techland.

    Price at 19.99 USD Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is coming digitally to Nintendo Switch on December 10, 2019, and will be published by Techland.

    Played it over 5 years ago on my PC.
    It's a fun game that's more arcade-ish compared to the previous COJ games, but it isn't much of a ground-breaking experience.
    It ain't a masterpiece, but it's very good overall.

    Another GREAT shooter series that simply botched off local multiplayer, adding up nothing to Switch's list of 0 local multiplayer shooters, but +1 to Switch's list of 100+ shooters that don't have the most basic and important feature of such style of games.

    Good job to all of you mindless video game consumers without a social life.

    I played the first one right after Gun. I was very disappointed, maybe because Gun was basically an early RDR, and CoJ was a linear shooter. Do the sequels get better?

    It's kind of ironic because video game people aren't really the most social ones. But it's honestly the feature that is most important to me, and also to my friends and family. I just keep forgetting people are so easily offended nowadays and my comment might actually get deleted before it can earn this award. I have to say being a puss* never helped me making friends, I wonder if it would if I lived elsewhere.

    Must be good incentive for all these Switch ports from Xbox 360 days. Definitely great game though.

    I heard that the developers had issues porting it to the Switch when they first released the game 5 years ago due to the fact that the Switch wasn't actually around then...

    There are some highly inaccurate, or at least implausible, uses of the word "literally" on this forum but at least most of them are grammatically correct.

    To answer the question without the prefix...

    For the developers? Money, I would hedge a bet.

    For the consumer? Another game to choose from.

    is this as trashy, misinformed, and poorly designed as juarez: the cartel? i know that game is absolute bottom-of-the-barrel trash.

    Not all Switch owners were adults when this game first came out.
    The Switch blatantly sees new gamers arrive all the time.
    It's a good game.

    As above the Switch pulls in a new gaming audience all the time. It's not a stagnant market of 40 year olds who once had gaming PCs.
    A 14 year old with a Switch this Christmas was 9 years old when the game came out. It's a good game.
