Black Riddles Studios Wants to Give the Nintendo Switch Its First PUBG-Style Game

The Nintendo Switch has a chance at its own Battle Royale game with Crazy Justice.

The Nintendo Switch is being offered a chance to get a little crazy with the upcoming action-adventure game Crazy Justice. Indie studio Black Riddles is currently developing the title for Switch, Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, but it also hopes to bring a PUBG-style Battle Royale mode to the Switch version of the game.

If Black Riddles succeeds, Crazy Justice will be the first Switch game to offer a Battle Royale arena (unless a real surprise comes flying out of left field—preferably a first-party game involving Nintendo characters a la Smash Bros). The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One already have Fortnite: Battle Royale, and, of course, PC has PUBG itself. Xbox One is also getting PUBG sooner than later, and it might have a long claim to console exclusivity.

The Switch needs some Hunger Games love, and Crazy Justice may wind up being the supplier. The game's story campaign involves a quest to activate Tesla Coils and prevent evil from invading a stricken land. Crazy Justice also offers cooperative multiplayer and several cooperative multiplayer modes outside Battle Royale. Cross-platform multiplayer is planned.

Crazy Justice is being funded via the Fig crowd-funding platform, and at the time of this writing, it's 68% funded with nearly 7 days left.
