Bugbear’s spectacular banger was ported to PS4 and Xbox One in 2019 before receiving next-gen ports. Rounding out the console lineup, Wreckfest is coming to Nintendo Switch in June.
Nintendo Switch Wreckfest Pre-Orders
Those who want to enjoy the chaos of on-the-go vehicles are in luck. THQ has announced that digital pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch version are live on Nintendo eShop.
Releasing on June 21, the Switch version of Wreckfest can be pre-ordered for £34.99 / $39.99 / €39.99. For collectors, a physical retail version will also be available on July 21 for £34.99.
BugBear’s post-release support for Wreckfest has been outstanding. Several seasons have added new cars, while free updates regularly add free tracks and tournament challenges. Luckily, Nintendo Switch owners won’t miss out on this extra content as the two season packs will be sold separately.
For the Switch game, two seasons will be available for purchase. Priced at £11.99 / $14.99 / €14.99, the Season 1 Pack includes 20 vehicles, 20 roof decorations and a car customization pack with new armor, rims and other add-ons. Plus, the Season 2 Pack includes 12 more cars for £9.99/$12.99/€12.99.
Nintendo Switch pre-order trailer
To celebrate the pre-orders going live, a new trailer shows the Switch version in action. Despite all the physics of carnage and track, Wreckfest looks remarkably smooth on the Switch, running at 30 frames per second.
This is a downgrade from the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions | S, which run at 4K and 60 fps. Online multiplayer is also limited to 12 players instead of 24. But those trade-offs are worth it when you can play Wreckfest on Nintendo’s handheld wherever you go.
