Still recall the classic Theme Hospital from your DOS gaming days? Well, its spiritual successor Two Point Hospital is now on its way to the palm of your hands!
Two Point Games have revealed that a Switch port of the hospital-management sim game is due in late 2019. A physical version is also in the works, and will include two previous expansions from the original PC release.
The game tasks players with handling the expansion of a hospital, albeit with some comical twists. Instead of the usual illnesses, patients will arrive at your doors with bizarre yet hilarious conditions – such as having light-bulb heads (“Light-Headedness”) and more!
Check out the trailer, press release, and Switch box-art below.
London, England – July 23, 2019 – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and Two Point Studios™ are thrilled to announce that after an exceedingly successful PC launch in August 2018, the critically acclaimed management sim, Two Point Hospital is coming to Sony PlayStation® 4, Microsoft Xbox® One and Nintendo™ Switch, both physically and digitally, late 2019.
In the atypical and engrossing world of Two Point Hospital you, the hospital administrator, must deal with many tricky situations on a daily basis, taking on varied challenges and demonstrating your ability to build, cure and improve in the hardest and strangest circumstances. Running a hospital empire can be – often literally – a messy business. So, make sure to train your staff and deal with their wide-ranging personality traits if you want to defeat the healthcare competition of Two Point County, and don’t worry if you can’t save every patient, ghost capturing janitors are here to help!
Since its successful PC release, Two Point Hospital has seen a wide-range of new features added to the game thanks, in part, to a lot of great community feedback. Many of these features, such as Interior Designer, copy-paste room layouts and character customisation will all be included for the console launch later this year. Players will even be able to experience the recently added expansions ‘Bigfoot’, set in a snowy region and ‘Pebberley Island’, where you tackle new challenges in the tropics. Two Point Hospital will be fully rebuilt for console gaming, with controls that brilliantly work for playing on the go or with a controller in hand.
“Bringing Two Point Hospital to console is something we always envisioned when starting up Two Point Studios in 2016”, said Mark Webley, Game Director at Two Point Studios. “Our community’s number one question since launch has been: ‘when is Two Point Hospital coming to consoles?’. Well, it is happening and we are very excited.”
