Maneater’s slowly been making the rounds this last year. First released in May 2020, Tripwire Interactive’s “shARkPG” was first announced for Switch in 2019, but saw a significant delay last September, one that pushed it back until the first half of 2021.
Having received next-gen ports back in November, Maneater’s finally swimming onto Switch for May 25th. Within the game, we’ll be playing as a female bull shark, who swears vengeance on a fisherman – Scaly Pete – that killed her mother, an attack in which he also left her disfigured.
Starting off as a baby, we’ll gradually begin terrorising the open world of Port Clovis, fending other predators before evolving into an adult megalodon. Offering seven explorable regions, Maneater offers a reactive world, and creating havoc will lead to further bounty hunters targeting you.
Our friends at Push Square had positive impressions last year, giving it 7/10 stars on both PS4 and PS5. Saying it offers “more than enough novelty” to make the format feel fresh, we’re looking forward to seeing how it plays on Switch.
Excited to try out Maneater on Switch? Let us know.
