Experience a living, breathing, connected Pool Hall from the convenience of your own home and indulge in Pure Pool’s spectacular visuals and signature, super-smooth gameplay.

Improving on the formula of Hustle Kings, the team at VooFoo has achieved a whole new level of realism in Pure Pool - with their fine-tuned physics engine and beautiful graphics. But there's way more than responsive balls and HD cloth to look forward to in the ultimate next-gen pool game! This generation of console has already got balls and Pure Pool delivers a connected experience both on and offline, comparable only to real life pool.

Connect. Spectate. Compete.

Whether you wish to hone your skills solo or weigh up against the competition Pure Pool has been built from the ground-up on the premise of connecting players. As a result the game will immerse you in a living, breathing pool hall, with all the buzz and vibrancy of a real pool-playing environment!  

On Nintendo Switch Pure Pool offers up the definitive cue sports experience, rolling the base game and all snooker DLC into one cue-tastic package. Ripstone have also prepared a new gameplay video of Pure Pool running on Nintendo Switch at 1080p and 60 frames per second to provide an exclusive look at what to expect when the game launches

The Nintendo Switch edition of Pure Pool offers players a no-compromise experience, taking full advantage of the platform in every way possible. Pure Pool is a technical marvel, running at 1080p docked and 720p handheld with all of the game’s high end visual features, all at a solid 60 frames per second. Offering the full range of control options supported by the Nintendo Switch, Pure Pool’s myriad of playstyles ensures that whatever the setup, players will be cueing up and potting balls in no time.

Featuring a single-player campaign, skill-based challenges, unlockable customisation options and multiple modes of pool and snooker including Killer and American 8 Ball, Pure Pool has players covered with more modes and options than you can shake a cue at. The Campaign Mode tracks progress from Amateur right through to Master difficulty, with players facing off against a series of opponents from pro players, to pool club sharks looking for an easy hustle. Players that make it to the top will either reign supreme or go down in a baize of glory!

“We’ve had an amazing reaction to our initial announcement of Pure Pool coming to Nintendo Switch,” said Hollie Pattison of Ripstone Games. “The game runs like a dream on Switch and really delivers the ultimate billiards experience on the platform. We’ve prepared a new video that shows off the game in all its glory and we hope everyone is excited to grab their Switch and play some frames on November 17th!”

Pure Pool also offers a huge range of additional modes, playstyles and challenges. With exhilarating fast-paced modes such as Speed Pot, Checkpoint and Royal Rumble, alongside the skill based challenges of Snooker Colours, Perfect Potter and Breakpoint, Pure Pool offers something for everyone. With global online leaderboards thrown into the mix, the competition to pocket the top spot has never been fiercer.

Pure Pool on Switch features a host of local and online multiplayer modes, including Cross-Play support with Steam and the option to play online against stored DNA player profiles. Global leaderboards and rankings allow players to track their performance across the Pure Pool player base whilst challenging members of the global community in Free-play, Two-player, Leagues, 8-ball, 9-ball, Blackball, Killer and Accumulator modes. All snooker content from the original Pure Pool DLC is included too, complete with online and local support for anyone that prefers the stricter rules of the gentleman’s game.

Pre-orders of Pure Pool include a 20% discount for the game, available between now and launch.

Players will be able to step straight into the climactic Pool Hall and immerse themselves in unprecedented hyper realism. Whether you’re planning to weigh up the competition and hone your skills or rack-up and compete against the best – Pure Pool is the closest you’ll get to the real thing, without leaving your living room.

Pure Pool also offers live online multiplayer so you can compete against worthy opponents in both head-to-head matches and in global online leagues. As if that wasn't enough; Pure Pool will also track your individual gaming-style, creating a unique DNA profile as you play. You can even play against an AI rendition of your friends and foes when they're not online.

Key Features:

  • Photo-realistic graphics and detailed visuals
  • Seamless switching from asynchronous to live online Multiplayer
  • DNA-profiling allows players to compete against the play-style of their friends or foes anytime
  • A fine-tuned physics engine for super-smooth gameplay
