Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 on the Nintendo Switch may be a pipedream at this point, but with the recent delay of the PC and Xbox/PS4 console versions, anything is possible. While recently announced for Microsoft’s upcoming next-gen console this Holiday season, complete with more cringy solo dancing than should legally be allowed, notably absent was any mention of a port for Nintendo’s portable hybrid system.
The original title, Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines launched for PC back in 2004, generally praised for its design, storytelling, and gripping choices that players had to make, being called a “flawed masterpiece” by critics - harkening back to the game’s beginnings as a table-top RPG.
Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 Switch
Despite not being yet announced for the Switch, the Vampire the Masquerade series is not without representation on Nintendo’s console. Vampire the Masquerade: Coteries of New York was released for the handheld in December 2019 on Switch and PC, but in a very different form than we will see during Holiday 2020. Unlike Bloodlines, Coteries of New York is a Digital Narrative Adventure game, inspired by Telltale Games and developed by Draw Distance. The series also saw this game type during the launch of Vampire the Masquerade: We Eat Blood back in 2017 developed by Asmodee Digital for mobile and later released on PC.
If anything changes regarding an announcement of Bloodlines 2 for Switch, we’ll be as excited as any for the ability to take the gripping RPG title on the go.
