Switch edition of Surgeon Simulator is being put together by floating developer hands

Surgeon Simulator is the critically-acclaimed and infamously difficult operation sim by Bossa Studios. Starting life as one of Bossa’s well-renowned game jams, it was originally launched on PC in 2013, and due to popular demand, has since been successfully released on PS4, PSVR, iOS and now on the Nintendo Switch.

Surgeon Simulator – the critically-acclaimed and YouTube-renowned operation sim by Bossa Studios – is celebrating its five year anniversary with a Nintendo Switch release. The port was hinted at in an 18 second Teaser Trailer earlier this month, which saw the infamously defiant hand knock a series of objects off a shelf, before finally hitting a light ‘switch’, but Bossa Studios are pleased to now officially confirm the news. Titled “Surgeon Simulator CPR” (Co-op Play Ready), the latest port will be arriving on Nintendo Switch this Autumn.

Taking on the role of Nigel Burke – a would-be surgeon with a less-than-conventional toolkit – the game sees players perform terrifying transplants in theatre, high-pressure procedures in an ambulance, and anti-gravitational operations in space! But it’s Surgeon Simulator’s notoriously difficult controls for which the game was originally celebrated, with previous ports on PC, PS4, PSVR and iOS spawning over 2 million fanmade instructional videos, not to mention a strong influencer following including PewDiePie, Fernanfloo and JackSepticEye.

Fully revived and feeling better-than-ever, the upcoming Nintendo Switch version takes advantage of the console’s much-lauded functionalities to create the most immersive surgeon experience yet. By snapping out a Joy-Con controller, players will be able to swap to motion controls at any time for nail-biting precision, while HD Rumble will help bring the full roster of tools – from hammers to hatchets, buzzsaws to laser pens – to life like never before!

Also taking advantage of Nintendo’s split Joy-Con support, players will be able to tag a second surgeon in at any time, whether it’s at home or on the go, to immediately launch local co-op play! Because sometimes you need a second opinion…

Containing all the original heart-in-your-mouth (or wherever else you decide to put it!) operations, including the additional teeth and eye transplants from the A&E Edition, Surgeon Simulator CPR also includes the highly-classified Alien Autopsy mode, too! Coupled with the console’s effortless portability and multitude of play options, it’s safe to say operating on the go’s never been easier!
