Tripwire Interactive and Retail Publisher Deep Silver Bring World’s First Action-RPG Where You Play As a Shark to Nintendo Switch This Spring
Developer and publisher Tripwire Interactive and retail co-publishing partner Deep Silver are eager to announce that the celebrated action-RPG where you play as a shark (aka shARkPG), Maneater is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system on 25th May, 2021. For the first time ever, the open waters of Port Clovis have evolved to go portable. Whether you’re on the go or in your home, you now can eat, explore, and evolve your way to the top of the food chain and become the Apex Predator of the ocean.
Out now on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC (via the Epic Games Store)—and this spring for the Nintendo Switch™ system—Maneater invites players to experience the ultimate power fantasy by controlling the apex predator of the seas—a terrifying shark!
Maneater is a single player, open-world action-RPG (ShARkPG) where YOU are the shark. Starting as a small bull shark pup you are tasked with surviving the harsh world while eating your way up the ecosystem. To do this, you will explore a large and varied open world encountering diverse enemies — both human and wildlife. Find the right resources and you can grow and evolve far beyond what nature intended, allowing the player to tailor the shark to their play style. This is fortunate, because to get revenge on the cruel fisherman that dismembered you will take evolving into a massive shark, an apex predator of legends. Eat. Explore. Evolve.
Maneater Key Features Include:
Eat: Feed on humans, consume nutrients, and find rare shark loot to evolve past what nature intended.
Explore the Gulf: Explore seven large regions, including bayous of the gulf coast, resort beaches, industrial docks, the open ocean and more. Experience a living world with a full day/night cycle.
Evolve Into a Legend: Unlock and equip various Evolutions that improve and enhance your shark as you progress through the campaign.
Unique Story: Play through a full narrative, story-based campaign narrated by Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty, Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock) and set against the backdrop of a reality TV show.
Diverse, Compelling Combat: Battle fierce wildlife including other apex predators or fight against various types of human hunters ranging from town drunks all the way up to the Coast Guard.
Includes the Tiger Shark Evolution: The Tiger Shark is often called the 'garbage disposal of the sea.' Appropriately enough, this evolution allows you to digest nearly anything, increasing your ability to gain vital nutrients from all varieties of prey.
With a truly unique premise and never-before-seen approach to the action-RPG genre, Tripwire Interactive looks forward to taking players on a journey through uncharted waters with Maneater.
