The Switch is about to get another dose of zombie-based survival horror in the form of Heaven Dust, a game inspired by genre star Resident Evil.

The game has you waking up in a strange mansion full of zombies and deadly traps, leaving you to go on the hunt for helpful items and solve puzzles. You can expect plenty of zombie fights, too, all presented in a top-down view (as seen in the trailer above).

Here's the game's official blurb and a feature list:

In 1970, a scientific investigation team found a new virus in the blood samples from a primitive tribe called "Torkue" in New Guinea. Some scientists think it will help to reveal the secret of immortality and they called it "Heaven Dust". However, it turns out that it's not really a gift from Heaven, it opens the gate to hell instead.

After the research center in New Guinea was destroyed in an accident related to the mutant virus, they brought "Heaven Dust" to the USA, then the research was carried out entirely by their subsidiary company StarDust. A disaster is just unfolding...

- Thrilling and immersive exploration-horror experience!
- Challenging story-integrated puzzles!
- A hopeless story with different endings. Maybe there is a good one.
