'Postal Redux' (ALL) Comes To Nintendo Switch Next Month - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 25, 2020 @ 10:55 a.m. PDT

Postal Redux is a twin-stick shooter where players take control of The Postal Dude as he battles to survive in a world gone MAD.

Play as The Postal Dude in his first appearance in a video game. Just good antisocial, psychotic shoot-'em-up action, strategy and government intervention. Crazed gunmen are out for blood and wait around every corner. Players fight back with a destructive arsenal as they make their way through a kill-or-be-killed psychological thriller.

One major addition to Postal Redux  is Rampage Mode, a new single-player mode based around a scoring system, which encourages an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak. Players will receive a grade following the completion of each level.

Postal Redux will maintain the elements that made the original Postal world-renowned. The grim art style, frightening ambience, the omnipresent "demonic voice" and the marching band will be faithfully recreated in this modern day take on a title which became a symbol for free speech in gaming.

More than just a remaster, Postal Redux (ported by the Polish porting house, MD Games) will include new levels and a challenging new gameplay mode called Rampage.

Switch gamers will be able to relish the rapid-fire action enjoyed by millions of their PC counterparts next month when Running With Scissors releases the game on Nintendo Switch, marking the franchise’s first appearance on console.

With the new powerful addition of Rampage, Postal fans will go wild. The outrageous single-player game play mode rewards an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak. Players will receive a score and letter grade following the completion of each level. Rampage Mode will incentivize gamers to replay levels using different strategies to increase their score. Rampage gives gamers endless hours of fun, with its addictive and re-playable gameplay.

“Over 20 years ago, we had no clue the impact Postal would have had on society and gaming history.” said Vince Desi, founder of Running With Scissors. “Postal coming out on Switch is our dream come true. On behalf of everyone at RWS we give thanks to our fans for the many years of support. We’re just getting started.”

Key Features:

  • Brand new Rampage mode: Take aim for the high score in this frantic mode that awards points for sustained kill streaks, creative methods of destruction, and blistering fast action!
  • Battle through 17 levels in the classic Campaign: Beginning from your humble Home, traverse through The Mine and Trailer Park, witness the mean streets of The Ghetto and the bright lights of The City, all the way to the final standoff at the Air Force Base, including a stop at the all-new Carnival.
  • Includes the original add-ons: Blast through Special Delivery's EZ Mart, Shanty Town, Earthquake, and the luxurious La Palamino Resort, and then head to Japan in Super POSTAL's Tokyo and Osaka! Play through everything together in the massive combined 23-level Excess Postage campaign!
  • A wide range of foes: Defend yourself against gun crazy Vigilantes, trigger-happy Police Officers, trained and efficient SWAT and Military squads, the quintessential Marching Band, and angry Ostriches!
  • 10 weapons of destruction: Lay waste with the mighty Shotgun and Spray Cannon, roast attackers with Molotovs and the Flamethrower, fill the streets with fire with the Napalm Launcher, clear out entire groups with Grenades and the Rocket Launcher (Heatseekers included!), lay traps for unsuspecting pursuers with varied types of Mines, and introducing the commanding Revolver!

Currently available on PS4 and PC, Postal Redux, an HD remaster of the classic 23-year-old twin-stick shooter, will arrive on Nintendo Switch on October 16, 2020!
