Thumper Heading to Switch Later This Month

Last year’s acclaimed on-rails rhythm-action title Thumper is heading to Nintendo Switch. Better still, Switch owners won’t have to wait long as the game will be available starting May 18 — exactly two weeks from now. Developer Drool made the surprise announcement earlier today, confirming that the game will run at 1080p/60FPS in the console’s TV mode and 720p/60FPS in handheld mode. HD Rumble will also feature on the Switch version though as you might expect, the game’s recently-announced VR version won’t be sharing a similarly-surprising presence.

Thumper is also slated to be released on Xbox One though a launch date for Microsoft’s platform hasn’t been given thus far. Needless to say we were among many to praise Thumper’s gameplay as much its soundtrack in our review which you can read right here.
