Immortals Fenyx Rising has captured the attention of many players due to the fact that it looks a lot like Zelda: Breath of the Wild – which, lest we forget, isn’t a bad thing at all, given that Breath of the Wild 2 isn’t going to be with us for a while yet.
When the game was previewed not so long ago, the fact that the Switch build wasn’t on offer did make us wonder if the Nintendo edition might slip a little in terms of release date, but it has been confirmed today that isn’t the case.
Immortals Fenyx Rising will hit the Switch on December 3rd – the same day as the Xbox and PlayStation versions – and you can pre-order it today.
Damien has over a decade of professional writing experience under his belt, as well as a repulsively hairy belly. Rumours that he turned down a role in The Hobbit to work on Nintendo Life are, to the best of our knowledge, completely and utterly unfounded.
So glad, I like all of you was worried we wouldn’t get the dollar store breath of the wild until next year.
I can’t say I’m particularly interested in what I saw, which is pretty much the case for all of Ubisoft’s open world games.
Is there any footage of game running on switch? Im interested in the game but worried about performance.
@Fuksiarz I think the footage in the direct was on Switch. It certainly looked more Switch-like than the Stadia demo thats been used for review thus far.
I’m very interested in the game, but it’s a large open world game, and still no evidence it runs well on the switch. Im cautious about big games coming to the switch, since the switch has had some problems/compromises running them.
I’m really looking forward to this game. I really enjoyed the demo on Stadia and I just hope the Switch version’s performance is up to snuff.
The graphics looks so inconsistent, some locations which were shown on the trailer looked good on Switch, while some other doesn’t…
Probably some huge day 1 patch or post launch patches, like Starlink and South Park Fractured on Switch which are bigger (just for the sizes of the patches) than many actual games on Switch.
This is going to sound cynical – and it is – but I don’t know how much faith I put in release dates outside of Nintendo’s own at the moment. The way so many titles seem to get pushed back (some on release day…) I’m not sure that the pre-order means much.
@StevenG In terms of production values, calling it dollar store really misses the mark. It could be derivative or generic or a lot of other things, but it definitely isn’t bargain bin or cheap. Both in literal cost and in budget. Also, virtually all previews so far have had almost nothing but great things to say about it. It’s not like Breath of the Wild did much to innovate in the first place. Almost all the mechanics in it were things other games did before it. Nintendo just put them together in an impressive package.
@NGNYS There hasn’t been any switch footage of the game yet. Nintendolife and other nintendo outlets only had access to a streaming version of Immortals on pc or something. Damian, the article writer above, mentions they didn’t have access to a “switch build”.
Ok, I get the whole thing where games inspire other games. But man…this one feels a little too close doesnt it?Shrines, four gods, powers of some sort. I get inspired by but this really does feel like Ubi just directly copied Breath of the wild. Even the Stamina for climbing is the exact same.
Now ‘this’ I am hyped for! I just pray that it looks, runs and plays well on Switch. This and Age of Calamity are my two most anticipated AAA games right now!”.
@Deltath It’s a knockoff, don’t pretend otherwise. It might be a great knockoff, but it still a knockoff.
Sure everything was there before BOTW, but they put it together this way. These guys even kept the same art style!
@Fuksiarz Given how aliased the footage in that video is, I’m not sure what other system it could be for.
Nintendo Switch, Ubisoft, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, PlayStation 4
