As if you didn’t need more incentive to throw money at Nintendo and grab a (opens in new tab) as soon as it launches in March, Laura Kate Dale from Let’s Play Video Games has leaked a rumour via Twitter (opens in new tab) that the sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2004 game is going to be a Switch exclusive for 12 months.

The first game has you play as Jade, the investigative journalist who brandishes her camera whilst investigating the DomZ threat (aliens who want to suck the delicious life juice out of innocent citizens).

The DomZ might have spread to other planets - and guess who gets recruited to combat it? That’s right. Jade. Again. She’s going to need a ton of film for her camera.
Are you excited yet? Because you should be.
