Postal Redux, the HD remake of Running with Scissors’ dark, twin-stick isometric shooter, is now available on Nintendo Switch, and there’s a secret, hidden cheat system which allows you to completely transform your game.
This cheat system hasn’t been revealed before now, but we’ve been chatting with the game’s publishing team to learn all about it and share the juicy details with you lovely lot. The game had a series of cheats available when it launched on PC a while back, and while the process is a little different on Switch, there are plenty of similarities.
Here’s how to enter your Postal Redux cheat codes on Switch:
1. Press X+A+B at the same time in-game to reveal the Switch text input applet.
2. Type in your chosen cheat (see below) and click confirm.
3. When back in-game, press the A button. After a few seconds, your chosen cheat should become active.
So, which cheats can you unlock using this method? We’re told that all of the cheats previously available on PC will work just fine on Switch, too. With thanks to Cheater87 and Old_Schooler for this list:
