Developed by OVERKILL and published by Starbreeze, the 5-year old cooperative first-person shooter that sees up to 4 players or team up to take on various heists will head to Nintendo Switch with rumble and full touch screen main menu support, over 50 heists, more than 150 weapons and plenty of characters to choose from including a new heister by the name of Joy, a Japanese computer wiz living in the US. Joy comes with her own hacking perks and weapons while rocking a custom LED light-based mask that can alter her appearance.
Additionally, the Nintendo Switch version of Payday 2 features a local multiplayer mode version of CRIME.NET titled CRIME.NET Local Play, which allows friends to team up for heists on the same local network.
Originally released in 2013 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Payday 2 has since been re-released on the Xbox One and PS4 as Payday 2: Crimewave Edition in 2015 and for Linux in 2016.
