The Darkside Detective Is Getting A Limited Edition Physical Release

Super Rare Games has announced that the comical point and click game, The Darkside Detective for Nintendo Switch is getting a limited edition physical release. This will be available to pre-order from September 19th, exclusively at Super Rare Games. You’ll have to be quick though, as there are only 5000 copies being produced and Super Rare Game releases are often snapped up in no time.

Having worked on many releases including Worms: W.M.D, and Human: Fall Flat since it was founded in 2018, Super Rare Games has quickly become of the go-to places for collectible limited edition Switch releases.

The Darkside Detective

Taking on the role of Detective Francis Mcqueen of the criminally underfunded Darkside Division, you’ll be tasked with solving the crimes that an evil darkness brings to the doorstep of Twin Lakes City. Crimes that no one else really wants to solve.


  • Classic point and click adventure gameplay

  • Retro pixel art with a modern twist

  • OST by Ben Prunty (FTL, Into the Breach)

  • 6 unique cases to solve, full of 90s pop culture references

  • Includes one free curse-removal, up to and including mid-level witch hexes

  • The Super Rare edition will include a 20 page full colour manual, interior artwork, exclusive sticker, as well as three trading cards randomly selected from the five-card set.
