Marvel’s Midnight Suns Comes To Last-Gen Consoles Next Week But The Switch Version Has Been Canned

It's sunset for the Switch port.

2K has announced that its delayed last-gen releases of Marvel’s Midnight Suns for the PS4 and Xbox One are finally seeing the light of day next week, releasing digitally on both platforms on May 11th.

The release will also coincide with the fourth and final piece of post-launch DLC for the game, which brings Storm into the mix as a recruitable hero with new story missions, new Abbey content and new skins and outfits. Blood Storm will be available to purchase separately on all platforms or as part of the game’s season pass, and all of the DLC will be available to buy on PS4 and Xbox One as soon as the game releases on those platforms.

Unfortunately, this news also comes with the disclaimer that the Switch version of Marvel’s Midnight Suns has been cancelled. The accompanying press release simply states “The Nintendo Switch version of Marvel’s Midnight Suns will no longer be offered as part of updated plans.”

Take a look at the trailer for the Blood Storm DLC for Marvel’s Midnight Suns below:

Get ready to rain down pain when Storm arrives in Midnight Suns on May 11!

Expand your adventure with Storm in Blood Storm, the fourth and final post-launch DLC for Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Storm can unleash powerful wind and lightning based attacks, bringing with her 10 unique Hero abilities. Plus, enjoy new story missions, a brand new Abbey Upgrade, and some fresh cosmetics for one of the most powerful mutants on the planet!

In our original review for Marvel’s Midnight Suns, we said “Marvel’s Midnight Suns feels like proof that, at some point, Firaxis will perfect this formula they’re going for. Their handle for turn-based combat is top notch, it’s just all of the role-playing lite elements that ultimately hampers the experience. It has its share of issues but Midnight Suns is an easy enough recommendation for both strategy enthusiasts and those swept up by the Marvel machine.”
