Answer a call to emergency on Nintendo Switch with 911 Operator

Take calls and deal with disaster around the globe late this month.

911 Operator is headed to Nintendo Switch on October 26, 2018, publisher SONKA today announced in a press release. The game will be available on the Nintendo eShop at that time, with a price that hasn't yet been disclosed.

As you may know, 911 Operator is already available on a variety of platforms, including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and smartphones. However, the Nintendo Switch version has been specifically redesigned to optimize play on that platform, according to the press release.

In 911 Operator, you'll play as an emergency dispatcher who answers calls and must then react to disasters unfolding on the other end of the line. You'll be able to dispatch emergency vehicles, dispense with life-saving advice, and probably cuss out a prankster who is wasting your time. The cussing part will probably just be in your head, though, not facilitated by in-game menus.

The game's key features, as outlined by today's press release, are as follows:

  • The opportunity to play in over 900 cities worldwide!

  • Expansive Career mode, featuring unique calls and events

  • Switch-exclusive World Map feature optimized for console gameplay

  • More than 140 types of reports to encounter

  • 12 types of emergency response vehicles, including helicopters, police cars or motorcycles

  • Real first aid instructions
There may also be other key features, but they weren't key enough to be included in the above list and will have to deal with just being forgotten.

The Nintendo Switch continues to attract a diverse range of digital experiences, and 911 Operator looks like it should help to expand offerings quite nicely when it arrives in around three weeks. If the price is right, it could maybe do quite well for itself. What do you think?
