First-person shooters aren't what normally springs to mind when you think Nintendo Switch. Get To The Orange Door might be on the brink of changing that.
As different heavy-hitting consoles have come and gone, Nintendo has remained ever-present. It can attribute its staying power to a number of things. First of all, innovation has played a large role. Of course, Nintendo wanting to be different is a big factor too, and appealing to as many people as possible is a huge attribute. While Sony and Microsoft tend to focus on hardcore gamers, Nintendo continues to attempt and succeed in including pretty much everybody.
The only frustrating thing about that for those of us who are hardcore gamers who currently own a Nintendo Switch is some games, and even genres, give the platform a miss. Most of the Switch's catalog is made up of family-friendly, often cartoonish games that sometimes feature familiar characters. Meanwhile, more challenging games and adult games don't see the light of day on Switch.
That's why any developer willing to try and merge those two worlds is welcomed with open arms. Hitcents has attempted to do that via Get To The Orange Door. GTTOD's early access has been available on Steam, with the full game promised by the end of 2019. However, Hitcents revealed this week that the Parkour/FPS/1980s mashup will also be released on Nintendo Switch.
Something spicy this way comes. We're currently working on porting Get to the Orange Door to the Nintendo Switch!— Hitcents (@Hitcents) August 14, 2019

As you can see from the trailer above, GTTOD is not for the faint-hearted, nor for those of you with weak thumbs. As we mentioned above, the game will require its players to combine their shooting ability with parkour skills. Players will be able to literally bounce off the walls and use various obstacles to get one up on their opponents and take them out before they do the same to you.
If you like the look of GTTOD, we're afraid neither we nor Hitcents can offer you anything definitive when it comes to a release date. A target of Q3 2019 was the original plan, but that is looking unlikely at this point. The new aim is for GTTOD to be released on both Switch and Steam by the end of the year. For any who want a taste of it before then, early access is available now on Steam.
