Destroy All Humans! launches today on Switch, bringing the original game in the series to a Nintendo platform for the very first time.
A remake of 2005's Destroy All Humans!, which launched on PS2 and Xbox at the time, the game has players terrorising the people of 1950s Earth in the shoes of evil alien, Crypto-137. Your job is to harvest DNA and bring down the US government, annihilating the puny humans standing in your way using an assortment of alien weaponry and psychic abilities.
This new Switch version comes with all available skins that were created for the game as standard, including the Skin Pack DLC. The standard version is available for €39.99 / $39.99 / £34.99, but Europe's also been treated to not one, but two special editions:
The Crypto-137 Edition, featuring a Crypto-137 figurine, a Crypto backpack, keychain, six lithographs, an anti-stress toy, and all in-game Crypto skins, all contained within a premium box, has an SRP of €399.99 | £349.99.
The DNA Collector's Edition, featuring a Crypto'N'Cow figurine, keychain, six lithographs, anti-stress toy, and all in-game Crypto skins, all contained within a premium box, has an SRP of €149.99 | £139.99.
If you're yet to give it a read, make sure to check out our full review of the new Switch port before diving in. We said that the remake "refreshes the original's visuals, modernises its controls and adds a few new weapon and traversal upgrades to proceedings," but fails to make any meaningful changes to the game's "rather outdated core gameplay".

@ralphdibny It is made of the recycled cardboard boxes that Solid Snake himself used at one point that saved his life after which he saved humanity. A cardboard box that was made from the wood of Yggdrasil. The same wood used to build the cross of Jesus after the Romans destroyed Yggdrasil to invade heaven and have it drop down on the Gallians, who then discovered the potion that helped them stand against the Roman invasion.
I'm just guessing, I admit, my history may be a bit rusty, and I never really believed in history since it's just the one with the strongest war machine that gets to tell their version and burn the other versions and the people telling them, but it must be something like this in order to justify that price for someone, somewhere.
Even when I still collected stuff, a unique, gorgeous, extremely large, insane quality statue of one of my favourite characters or whatever, ever, wouldn't have made me pay that amount of money. Not even with a backpack and a videogame I really wanted included...
Unless it came in such a premium box.
