Immortal Redneck shoots up the Nintendo Switch this week

The sands of ancient Egypt is no place for a Redneck… or is it? Immortal Redneck sends its title hero thousands of years into the past for a little old fashioned revenge.

“We’ve been dying (and resurrecting again and again…) to bring Immortal Redneck to the Switch,” said Guillermo Andrades, Co-Founder, Crema. “We know players want more shooters on the system, and we think ours will make them very happy.”

From what we see here, it just might. As you can tell, Immortal Redneck actually looks pretty great running on the Switch. The FPS revels in its old school gameplay, with circle-strafing aplenty. It’s also locked and loaded with more than 50 weapons, and blessings from the gods that’ll grant special abilities.

The game is procedurally generated too, so the adventure is always different. That includes when you resurrect after a death. One neat thing to highlight there though, is that even though everything else changes, you keep the in-game currency that you earn. And that means that “stat upgrades, level modifiers, and new player classes called favors of the gods” will all carry over to a fresh go.

One more thing that the game offers, this time exclusive to the Switch, is gyroscopic aiming. I can’t say I’m much of a fan, but there are plenty of gamers who did a little motion control in their FPS’.

Available already on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC, Immortal Redneck is now out on the eShop for the Nintendo Switch. It’ll run you $19.99 USD.
