As part of Nintendo's E3 celebrations, it has been revealed that AAA investigative horror game The Sinking City is headed for Nintendo Switch.
Inspired by the works of horror author H.P. Lovecraft, The Sinking City is described as a "story-rich, free investigation horror game". We've known about its upcoming release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One for a while, but seeing this Switch reveal is a very nice surprise indeed.
The game will be self-published on Switch by developer Frogwares, with the launch coming "later this year". Make sure to check out the creepy trailer above if you haven't already, and then read on to learn more about what you can expect to find in the game.
Free Investigation - A unique approach to the detective gameplay were your skills and cunning are your main tools, and not hand-holding UI and pop up clues. Customizable difficulty and grey moral choices mean your conscious is the only guiding light in how you solve cases.
Enthralling Story of Insanity in a World of Desolation and Rot - Uncover the mystery of a supernatural flood that envelops the city of Oakmont. Citizens slowly losing their sanity and willingly trapping themselves in this place. Nightmarish creatures and cults becoming the norm. And you, a private detective with his own mental demons, are all that can expose the cosmic powers that pull at these puppet strings.
Deeply Rooted in Lovecraft and Cthulhu Mythos - The Sinking City is heavily inspired and built around the stories of the master horror writer himself, H.P Lovecraft. Become a part of an iconic universe, encounter familiar characters and relive beloved horror stories while also exploring new takes and twists on the cosmic horror genre.
Are you happy to see this one headed to Nintendo's machine? Will you be picking it up when it arrives later this year? Tell all below.
Looks like pc and switch for me!!!!
Well that's my ps4 version cancelled
Well, whaddaya know? I just posted the trailer for this both in the chit-chat and E3 2019 thread, because it got stealth-dropped in today's final Treehouse segment, and I hadn't seen it before then, in the Direct or elsewhere.
Color me intrigued, though...
Kinda like a survival-horror version of groundhog day.
Image reminds me of Timebandits.
I've seen enough- you know what, forget I said anything.
Ever since this got announced on other platforms I’ve been wanting it. So stoked this is coming to the Switch. Love the Cthulhu genre.
Ninty, if you'll allow this on your platform, PLEASE use that Eternal Darkness trademark. I'm begging you.
if i cant get a new eternal darkness, this will do! im all over this
i will need check it. it looks really good.
If only we were getting Eternal Darkness as well…
The more handheld horror, the better!
Well,so long as whoever's writing it isn't the same person doing the press release, because that screamed amateur.
A game like this depends a lot on good writing.
@ThanosReXXX It was in the direct. It was in the sizzle reel at the end. Also Alien Isolation was in it as well.
I hate game trailer that don't shows gameplay, I am not buying the game to watch movie.
Sweet sweet baby Jesus. This will do just fine replacing my Eternal Darkness hopes.
@MsJubilee Yeah, I saw it after I watched it again, but in that sizzle reel it was a REALLY short, non-descript teaser, whereas this trailer that they suddenly dropped in the Treehouse session yesterday, was considerably longer.
I never mentioned Alien Isolation, so I've no idea why you mentioned that. But I did see that, and I am interested in that as well.
@nintendolie Here's some gameplay for you:
That's an old gameplay video from a PC demo from almost a year ago.
Also, here's a developer video, explaining more about the game:
Is there going to be a physical release? 🙏
P.S - I hope there’s some Bioshock vibes.
