Nintendo has been pretty consistent this year with the random game announcements, and today was no different. Just before their Nintendo Treehouse: Live presentation, Nintendo posted an announcement video for John Wick Hex coming to the Nintendo Switch, which is very exciting, since the game already has a high reputation on other platforms.
John Wick Hex will launch on the Nintendo Switch on December 4th, 2020, and it will cost $19.99.
What is John Wick Hex?
Become the Baba Yaga!
John Wick Hex is a fast-paced, action-oriented strategy game that makes you think and strike like John Wick, the professional hitman of the critically acclaimed film franchise. Created in close cooperation with the creative teams behind the films, John Wick Hex is fight-choreographed chess brought to life as a video game, capturing the series’ signature gun fu style while expanding its story universe. Players must make quick decisions and choose every action and attack they make, all the while considering their immediate cost and consequences.
Featuring a unique blend of strategic time-based action, the game captures the feel of the tactical combat from the films and blurs the line between the strategy and action video game genres. Perform well and progress in the main story mode to unlock new weapons, suit options and locations. Each weapon changes up the tactics you’ll use and the manner in which you’ll play. Ammo is finite and realistically simulated, so time your reloads and make the most of weapons you scavenge on the job.
Experience an original new story set prior to the events of the films which sees John on a desperate mission to rescue Winston and Charon from a dangerous new adversary seeking his birthright. This story is brought to life by the world class voice talents of Ian McShane and Lance Reddick, reprising their iconic roles from the films, and voice acting legend Troy Baker, joining the stellar cast as the game’s eponymous villain ‘Hex’. John Wick Hex compliments the style of the films with a unique graphic noir art design and an original score by renowned composer Austin Wintory.
