TUCSON, Arizona – Sep 25, 2020 – POSTAL Redux, an HD remaster of the classic 23-year-old twin-stick shooter, will arrive on Nintendo Switch on October 16, 2020! More than just a remaster, POSTAL Redux (ported by the Polish porting house, MD Games) will include new levels and a challenging new gameplay mode called Rampage.

Switch gamers will be able to relish the rapid-fire action enjoyed by millions of their PC counterparts next month when Running With Scissors releases the game on Nintendo Switch, marking the franchise’s first appearance on console.

 

With the new powerful addition of Rampage, POSTAL fans will go wild. The outrageous single-player game play mode rewards an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak. Players will receive a score and letter grade following the completion of each level. Rampage Mode will incentivize gamers to replay levels using different strategies to increase their score. Rampage gives gamers endless hours of fun, with its addictive and re-playable gameplay.

“Over 20 years ago, we had no clue the impact POSTAL would have had on society and gaming history.” said Vince Desi, founder of Running With Scissors. “POSTAL coming out on SWITCH is our dream come true. On behalf of everyone at RWS we give thanks to our fans for the many years of support. We’re just getting started.”

Running with Scissors was founded in Tucson, AZ in 1996 and now operates from all across the world. Independent video game studio that develops and publishes outrageous games just for the hell of it. The company's goal is to make action-packed games that are fun, funny, and possibly even politically correct. RWS' games feature wonderfully excessive amounts of violence, however, the company is not in favor of real-life violence and believes it’s a hell of a lot better to act out your frustrations in video games rather than against your fellow man.

MD Games is a porting subsidiary company established in 2019 by two Polish video game publishers - Movie Games and Drageus Games. Both are listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange’s alternative investment market - NewConnect, and have many developed and published games on a track record.
