Nintendo has not been known for having extremely violent games on the various consoles it has released. This lack of more intense titles has changed with the Switch. Nintendo has shown a complete willingness to have third party games which are not for the squeamish available for players to play. Examples of these titles include the likes of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and DOOM. 

Friday The 13th will no doubt bring some of the most violent and gory gameplay a Nintendo console has ever seen with its arrival on the Switch. However, the Wolfenstein and DOOM franchises have already introduced plenty of gore for Nintendo Switch players to experience. With this in mind, Friday The 13th will fit right in with the Nintendo Switch library of games. 

Those not familiar with the gameplay Friday The 13th offers will be treated to a horror fan’s dream/nightmare of going toe to toe with the legendary Jason Vorhees. Individuals will either play as Jason to hunt down and kill the group of camp counselors in various wicked and gruesome ways. The counselors, meanwhile, who are fighting to survive have a variety of tactics they can employ. These tactics include teaming up to take down Jason, hiding and wait for the police to rescue you, fixing a boat and fleeing on the water, and many other survival gameplay avenues for Nintendo Switch players to take advantage of when playing. 

Nintendo Switch players jumping into the world of Friday The 13th: The Game Ultimate Slasher Edition will be looking for advice to staying alive in the horror title. Anything to tip the odds of surviving Jason Vorhees.  One of these valuable tips is to always listen to your surroundings. Jason will make plenty of noise when he is searching for his next victim.
