PM Studios announced today that Ministry of Broadcast has new release dates for its digital and physical versions on Nintendo Switch.
The game – which I have described as an Orwellian Prince of Persia – will see a physical release on May 26. That’s a delay from the previously-scheduled date. Meanwhile, the digital release on Nintendo eShop is now set for April 30.
The publisher says that all physical preorders of Ministry of Broadcast will now come with a customized steelbook and a collectible box. Currently, preorders are only available at GameStop.
In my review of the PC version, I recommended the game for fans of classic platformers. The gameplay and graphics are a throwback (in a positive way). The game also gives some commentary on modern society.
“Ministry of Broadcast is a fascinating intersection of politics and psychology. It’s also an interesting mix of several video game genres: narrative-driven adventure, classic platformer, and puzzle game,” I wrote at the time.
Hopefully, the Switch version maintains the quality of the PC build.
