Marmalade Game Studio brings the classic board game to console
(London, UK) December 12th, 2018 – Colonel Mustard on the bus with the Joy-Cons, or Professor Plum on the sofa with the Pro Controller? Players can now decide themselves as Marmalade Game Studio released the CLUEDO game for Nintendo Switch™ on November 30th, 2018.
“We believe the Switch is going to be the new home of digital games, so we’ve worked hard to bring CLUEDO to life on the platform” said Michael Willis, Marmalade’s CEO, “It looks great on the Switch’s screen, and it looks even better in the dock—we’re really excited about our big-screen debut. The Switch is a modern classic, and CLUEDO is a classic made modern. We can’t wait for players to try it!”
Marmalade has designed the game to be as flexible as the Switch itself. There are a variety of ways to play—single-player, online multiplayer with weekly leader boards, private games against friends and family—and a wide selection of fan-favourite themes, including Hollywood Studio, The Venetian Masquerade, Wild West and Snowy Peaks.
“As the CLUE brand gears up to celebrate its 70th anniversary milestone, we’re thrilled to provide our fans with yet another fresh and innovative way to solve the classic ‘whodunit’ mystery,” adds Rich Cleveland, VP of Marketing, Digital Media for Hasbro Gaming. “With the CLUEDO game for Nintendo Switch, friends and families from across the globe can engage with the infamous – and mysterious – CLUE characters on Nintendo’s innovative platform!”
Ways to play include single-player against customizable AI, cross-platform online multiplayer against players on any device the game is available on, or locally against friends and family. Up to 6 players can take part in whichever mode you choose. Weekly leader boards are updated so players can find the world’s greatest detectives and there are updated Clue Sheets that allow players to make their own notes. Numerous themes are included in this Switch version of the famous board game and there are more to come in regular updates to the game.
CLUEDO is known as CLUE in North America. The game launches in the U.S. on December 17th, 2018.
