Nintendo Switch owners will have to wait a little longer before they can play Ghostrunner. The developer announced on Twitter that the Switch version would be delayed into November. The release date will be revealed in a few days, and players are asked to wait for further news.
Ghostrunner has already been released for PC, PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One on October 27. While the Nintendo Switch release date trailer also shares the same date, it was pushed back, and the release date trailer has been updated yet.
From the tweet, it appears that there were issues with the Nintendo Switch port that the Ghostrunner team was not happy with. Players may have to wait a bit longer, but the team wants everyone to have the best experience possible at launch.
Ghostrunner is a hardcore FPP slasher set in a cyberpunk setting. Players tackle the megastructure, Dharma Tower, which has become humanity’s last shelter after a cataclysmic event. The runner has to start from the very bottom to climb up to the top where the tyrannical Keymaster waits. Only then can the runner get their revenge.
The Nintendo Switch version faces a slight delay into November, as the Ghostrunner teams want all players to have the best possible experience with the game. The final date will be announced in the coming days, so please stay tuned for more information.

The tower city’s streets are filled with violence, and the Keymaster cares little for the people living in the area. Resources within the tower begin to dwindle, and it soon becomes a fight for what remains. The tower may be on the brink of total destruction.
The protagonist is the most advanced blade fighter ever created. While players will have several enemies to fight, no one outclasses the runner’s skills. The protagonist wields a monomolecular katana, superhuman reflexes, and other special techniques.
These abilities will mean little if the runner can’t survive. One hit means instant death in Ghostrunner, which makes the game a challenging experience. Players will have to master the protagonist’s unique skills to reach the top of the tower.
Those who find the game too challenging can find assorted tips and tricks posted on the official Ghostrunner social media accounts. They include using the “Blink” skill to flash-forward to another enemy takedown.
There is currently no additional gameplay DLC to purchase. Players can purchase the original soundtrack now by Daniel Deluxe on various digital music services.
Ghostrunner is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One. The new release date for the Nintendo Switch will be announced shortly.
