World War II Narrative Adventure “Attentat 1942” Coming to Nintendo Switch on 12 May

Over the weekend, Charles Games announced that their narrative adventure Attentat 1942 is scheduled to release for Nintendo Switch on 12 May. The game has been available on Steam PC since 2017.

Set in World War II Czechoslovakia/Czech Republic/Czechia (it’s hard to keep up for old guys like me), Attentat 1942 puts players in the grip of terror from Nazi occupation, featuring a combination of digitized film and black and white artwork.

Here’s the official breakdown of Attentat 1942 from Charles Games, followed by the latest trailer:

Attentat 1942 is a historically-accurate adventure told through the eyes of World War 2 survivors. Written and made by professional historians.

It’s 1942 and Reinhard Heydrich, the ruler of the Nazi occupied Czech lands appointed by Hitler, was assassinated. Nazi retaliation was brutal. Your grandpa was among the victims, sent to a concentration camp.

But why? What role did he play in the attack? Why didn’t he tell his family? Was he brave or reckless?

Immerse yourself in a story about love, friendship and heroism among the horrors of a world conflict. Confront witnesses, experience the everyday life under Nazi rule and uncover the fate of your family in a game that was nominated for Apple Design Awards 2021, was selected as the Independent Game Festival finalist in 2018 or won A MAZE festival in 2017.


• dive into deep-branching dialogues, where your choices matter

• experience history through interactive comics and memories, hide resistance leaflets from the Gestapo or flee from a Nazi prison

• explore rare digitized film footage and historical items

Attentat 1942 will be released on 12 May via the Nintendo Switch eShop.
