Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted Is on the Nintendo Switch

Didn’t Know HD Rumble Was a Thing

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: horror games do not mix well with handheld consoles. But since people want to spend money on them and developers want to make money off them, here we are. About half a year ago, Nintendo tested the waters of the FNaF fanbase on the Switch with the first three games. Not long after that, the VR installment Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted came out with a VR-less version. Now, it comes to the Nintendo Switch with a spooky trailer.

Five Nights at Freddy's VR

The trailer for the Switch port of the game comes with all the things you would expect out of a FNaF game. You got flickering lights, your got animatronics, you got cameras, and you got jump-scares. Something that the PC and VR versions do not have are the rumble feature. Whether that actually enhances the experience or not remains to be seen, but it is something that the trailer boasts. They called it “HD rumble”, which I never imagined would be a selling point. As one of the more recent entries to the series, Help Wanted definitely looks very pleasing to the eyes.

As Help Wanted is now a VR-optional game, it has moved beyond the Oculus and PSVR platforms. If you want to play a FNaF game on the way to work, or at this point in the pandemic in the bathroom or something, the Nintendo Switch port may be for you. Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted is available now on PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Oculus Rift, and PSVR.
