Smuggler Simulator

Ultimate Games have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Smuggler Simulator (developed by 3T Games). It will be released sometime in 2023.

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots:

Smuggler Simulator is a singleplayer focused game with a 3D open world and procedurally generated missions and locations. The title will allow you to make a career in a very risky “profession” and move various goods across borders in a more or less spectacular manner.

The extensive crafting system, as well as maintaining and upgrading tools of the trade, will also play a significant role.

According to the creators, individual tasks can be performed in different ways, and players’ creativity will play a vital role. For example, they will be able to use traditional smuggling tricks or decide to go for a solution taken straight out of Jackass. Smuggler Simulator will also offer very diverse locations in different parts of the world and, thanks to the procedural generation system, each gameplay session will prove unique.

  • a career in a dangerous industry;
  • gameplay requiring a lot of creativity;
  • diverse locations;
