Good Shepherd Entertainment has recently announced that they are teaming up with independent Italian developer Italo Games to bring their 1970s-inspired crime and action game, Milanoir, to the Nintendo Switch in early 2018. This release will come ahead of Milanoir‘s planned releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam) later this year.

Milanoir, hugely inspired by the work of Quentin Tarantino, has been described as ‘an original pixel-packed action game inspired by the masterpiece Italian crime movies of the 1970s’, and is a game deeply concerned with the themes of greed, betrayal and revenge. To give you a better idea of what the game is all about, Italo Games’ own description of Milanoir reads:

Inspired by the Italian crime flicks of the ’70s revered by Quentin Tarantino, Milanoir is a pixel-packed action game set in the violent city of Milan. Come meet Piero, a convict suddenly released from prison looking for revenge over the man who framed him. Hunt for the truth and escape the ones who are chasing you through an unforgiving city. Someone wants you dead: you have to use all your toughness to survive. Shoot, choke, sneak your way through the enemies and engage them in breathtaking car chases.

Milanoir‘s Nintendo Switch release has been carefully designed to take the unique capabilities of the handheld/console hybrid into account, with the entire story and campaign being able to be completed through local co-operative play (with each player using one Joy-Con controller each). So, find yourself a worthy partner in crime and get ready for Milanoir to hit the Nintendo Switch eShop very soon.
