It has been apparent for some time now that Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Game would be playable on the Nintendo Switch. Great news for all who have been patiently waiting. Now you can run for your life, on the run, because Friday the 13th: The Game has been released on the Switch as of today. Switch owners can now get together with friends, hunt each other down or escape Camp Crystal Lake and have access to all the currently available DLC as the game comes with all the goodies for no extra charge with the Slasher Edition.

The Switch Edition of Friday the 13th comes with the Slasher Edition which includes all released content up to this point, including single-player challenges, every available Jason skin, and the Virtual Cabin exploration mode. Unfortunately, new features will not be added to the game as the game underwent a copyright dilemma some time ago. This was due to a legal battle between the writer of the original Friday the 13th film and the current rights holder. This kept developers from creating anything new to the game besides fixes. While this game may never get more updates, Illfonic is currently working on their next asymmetric multiplayer game in Predator: Hunting Grounds which is set to come to PlayStation 4 next year.
We may not see new content, but the move over to the Switch is likely to increase the player base. The game can be purchased for $40 right now if your looking to put on the hockey mask and cause some terror wherever you may be.
