The Stanley Parable, one of the most acclaimed narrative game experiences in the modern era, is finally coming to Switch in the form of an upgraded, deluxe package. With more endings that double as existential crises, more meta remarks from the malevolent narrator, and more than the fair share of fourth-wall breaks, it’s time to lose your mind amongst the empty offices all over again.
First released on Steam in 2011, The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe is a first-person narrative-driven adventure game, with the titular Stanley left alone to search for coworkers in his vacant office building. Of course, there’s much more here than meets the eye. With a mind-bending loop of endings that tease and poke the idea of what a game should be, it’s a singular experience to get inside the mind of Stanley. That is, if the narrator doesn’t beat you there first.
With the vanilla version never having made it to Switch, The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe release date is the first opportunity to play on a Nintendo device, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the fourth-wall shattering narrator make a few subtle nods to Stanley’s console makeover.
When is the Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe release date?
You can return to cubicle 427 when The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe releases on April 27 (or 4/27, see what they did there?). With the launch trailer promising more brain-boggling content to dig your teeth into, there’s not long to go until Stanley jumps back into his miserable loop of neverending endings, and don’t tell him, but we can’t wait.
With that, you’re up to date on The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe release date ahead of the return to the office. If the idea of controlling the actions of just one man isn’t doing it for you, why not take charge of an entire country with our picks for the best games like Civilization on Switch.
