'Pixel Noir' (ALL) Also Comes To Nintendo Switch - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 2, 2018 @ 8:46 a.m. PST

Pixel Noir is a JRPG-inspired detective game set against a film noir backdrop.

Living on the streets of a shithole like Pinnacle City, there’s only two things to keep you going: A pack of cigarettes and the feeling that there’s more than this.

There was something rotten in that rundown place. You were in over your head, but you were too proud to admit it. It was your pride that killed your partner. With the hospital burned to the ground and nothing to exonerate you, they threw you in jail.

For ten years you were haunted by unanswered questions and unspeakable horror, frightened by what you saw, what you did - and what you could still do. Now you’re scraping by as a private eye, running a business out of a crappy apartment. But a chance comes along to clear your name once and for all. With your sanity at stake, how can you afford not to take it?


The version for Nintendo Switch will include every element introduced on PC, Xbox One and PS4, but you’ll be able to explore and survive Pinnacle City anywhere!

With all of the core features and nice-to-have systems already built and functioning, Pixel Noir has now around 40% of the story implemented within the game, including the entire beginning of the story.

Key Features:

  • Solve a variety of mysteries as Pinnacle City’s cheapest Private Eye! From missing pets to murder investigations, your detective skills will earn you either fortune or face punches. 
  • Fight enemies in turn-based combat. Unleash devastating combo attacks by teaming up with other heroes in your team! 
  • Explore Pinnacle City--a wretched hive of scum and villainy harboring black market trade & hawked by colorful characters.
  • Use your investigation mode to reveal clues. Level it up over time to unearth new secrets and storylines!
  • Overkill mechanic: if you do too much damage, instead of knocking your enemy out, you can kill them. This will affect what type of spoils you get from battle!
  • New timed hit mechanics for skills including button sequences and d-pad rotation!
  • CRDTech card game... can you find Phil, the Dust Master?

Pixel Noir is in development for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
