Maneater will swim to release in May for Nintendo Switch

Tripwire Interactive has announced that its self styled Shark RPG Maneater will be released on Nintendo Switch, and the date it will release is May 25th. Maneater for Switch will be priced at $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99. The studio has not released any footage yet of how Maneater will look on the Switch. Hopefully, the studio will do that soon.

Earlier this year, Tripwire confirmed that Maneater had hit over one million sales. At the time, John Gibson, CEO of Tripwire Interactive said:

“The Tripwire team has been overwhelmed by the great reception Maneater received since it launched earlier this year, and we can’t wait for players to experience the thrill of playing as a deadly shark in all of her powerful glory on next-gen consoles. With next-gen Maneater has never looked better with amazing ray traced water and smooth 4k 60FPS gameplay, but the adventures won’t stop there, as fans can expect even more exciting news about the future of Maneater soon.”

We gave Maneater a decent review earlier this year, finding it a decent concept, but lacking in variety. Jim wrote in our Maneater review:

“Maneater is a crazy concept come to life, Tripwire somehow managing to cobble together a silly ShaRkPG that is more than just a ten-minute novelty. There’s no denying it’s an exotic catch, but when it comes to quality open world action games, there’s plenty more fish in the sea.”
