Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse, release for Switch on September 21, 2018
Revolution Software and Ravenscourt are excited to announce that Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse will release worldwide for Nintendo Switch on 21st September 2018. The celebrated adventure will include never-seen-before Behind the Scenes movies and an innovative new user interface.
Paris in the spring. Shots ring out from a gallery. A robbery – a murder – and the beginning of another epic original Broken Sword adventure. An adventure that will hurl intrepid lawyer George Stobbart and sassy journalist Nico Collard onto the trail of a murderous conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word. Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humour – can George and Nico outwit evil forces both ancient and modern and save mankind from disaster?
The game includes Behind the Scenes movies created especially for the Nintendo Switch version. Unlocked as play progresses, these videos reveal the story and the development process behind the game, through previously unreleased interviews with the Broken Sword team.
This enhanced edition also features a reimagined user interface designed to take full advantage of Nintendo Switch’s functionality, allowing players to seamlessly switch between Joy-Con and touch screen play.
Mixing cerebral puzzling, sharp wit, with historical authenticity and intrigue, Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse has secured its place as a favourite with fans of the series, whilst also winning over a new generation of players.
