Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition seeing retail release in North America as well

In our sights

We've known for awhile now that Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition was going to get a retail release in Europe alongside the Switch eShop version. Fans here in North America have been hoping for the same treatment, and according to a publisher, it indeed is. We have to wait for the official announcement and the release date is unknown, but those interested in a retail release for Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition will be able to find it at North American retailers.

Thanks to JPSwitchMania for the heads up!

Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition - EU cover art

Snazzy!

Face the infamous Afrika Korps of World War 2 in this award-winning third-person shooter. You are the turning point. Because one bullet can change history... Sniper Elite 3 is a tactical World War 2 third-person shooter with stealth gameplay, authentic ballistics and huge open levels.

I have to say, I find the cover art for Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition to be pretty fancy! While the behind-the-back character shot isn't anything new, the use of limited color here really makes the cover stand out. If I was walking by store shelves filled with games, I definitely think this box would catch my eye.

Oxford, March 14th 2019 - Independent developer and publisher Rebellion today announced multiple Sniper Elite projects, including a much-demanded follow-up to the BAFTA-nominated Sniper Elite 4.
