If Stranger Things and every other media property from the past five years channelling '80s nostalgia up the wazoo hasn't given you your fill just yet, you may well want to keep an eye on the eShop next week. Devolver Digital is bringing episodic PC adventure-horror Stories Untold to Switch on 16th January.
As you can see from the trailer above, it's a blend of genres incorporating first-person puzzle gameplay with classic text adventure elements in an atmospheric, straight-to-video '80s-style wrapper. It first released for PC and Mac way back in February 2017 before the launch of the Switch, but now almost three years later it's dropping onto your favourite handheld hybrid.
Taking place in England in 1986, the game is made up for four episodes and you'll spend most of your time sat in front of a virtual computer screen, although there are exploration sections in the later episodes. If you saw the logo and immediately thought of Stranger Things, that's probably because it was designed by the same artist responsible for the logo and artwork of Netflix's hit show, Kyle Lambert.
According to the press blurb, the thriller has been reworked by developer No Code with changes to the "user experience and controls to take advantage of the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Con":
Combining a mix of classic text-adventure and point-and-click adventure in a modern presentation, four short stories are packaged together into a single mysterious anthology that earned widespread critical acclaim since release.
No word on pricing yet, but the game was critically well-received on PC and holds a Metacritic score of 81, so if you're a sucker for a throwback and enjoy a spooky game, this should probably be on your rader.
