If you want to get into the Halloween spirit - but without going too overboard with the scares - the charming, if slightly spooky platformer Yuri might just to do the trick.

The game is making the leap to Nintendo Switch on 31st October, bringing its atmospheric platforming to a Nintendo console for the first time. The developers say you’ll need "dexterity, curiosity and the ability to go with the flow" to help Yuri overcome all of the game's obstacles and reach the goal of his mysterious journey.

Speaking of the developers, the game was actually created over six years by Ange and Aurélien Potier. Yuri is also available on Apple devices, but with Switch being such an ideal place for platformers to be discovered, the brothers will no doubt be hoping for more success. We've got some screenshots for you below.

You'll be able to pick this one up for $13.99 / £10.99, although we spotted a 30% discount available on the eShop that's valid until the day before launch. If you want to pre-purchase it, you'll save a few quid in the process.

One worth keeping an eye on, do you think? Will you be giving it a go at the end of the month? Share your thoughts with us below.
