A recent press release from developer Techland has confirmed that the upcoming Dying Light Platinum Edition will be supporting Nintendo Switch’s motion controls. In addition to the press release, Techland has also posted a manifest video for the game on YouTube – which you can check out below.
Dying Light on the Nintendo Switch will leverage the power of haptic feedback and motion controls to allow for more ways to interact with the game. Given how Dying Light was built for traditional consoles and traditional controllers, it would be interesting to see how the game’s rather excellent parkour movements translate to the Switch’s motion controls.
Agnesa Belegu, lead game designer of Dying Light, said, “We’ve been imagining Dying Light on the Nintendo Switch for a very long time. Getting into the free-flow of parkour and exploring our deadly open-world has never been more of an adrenaline rush. The flexibility of the Switch helps to immerse you into our world and makes you feel physically involved in it, with the flow of movement and visceral combat enhanced by the dynamic haptic feedback and motion control.”
Developer Techland has been hard at work on the next chapter in Dying Light, Dying Light 2: Stay Human. The game has been through a protracted development cycle, and also got delayed to next year very recently.
