After originally being planned for a 2019 release, Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York has now received a more solid launch date for Nintendo Switch. You'll be able to get your hands on it from 24th March.
The game is a single-player narrative experience set in the universe of tabletop RPG Vampire: The Masquerade's fifth edition, showcasing the struggle for power between two vampiric factions, the Camarilla and Anarchs. It launched on PC in December, but the upcoming console versions will contain additional elements such as new graphic assets (new character portraits and new location backgrounds), improved music, and "numerous fixes".
If you need to be brought up to speed on this one, feel free to check out this official description:
As a newly-fledged vampire in New York, you must learn what it means to be one of the Kindred in a huge, contemporary metropolis. On your way you’ll meet NPCs – other vampires, thin-bloods, ghouls, humans... and more. You will perform tasks that will put your humanity to the test and take part in a complex and often brutal struggle for power between the Camarilla and the Anarchs. You’ll build your Coterie and learn your undead companions’ deepest secrets… or see them abandon you. You’ll be able to use clan Disciplines to charm, sneak, intimidate or kill, and your choices will determine your path.
The game is primarily text-driven and story-oriented presented in visual novel style, it also includes branching dialogue and several additional elements that reflect the dark truths of being one of the Kindred like Disciplines (vampiric powers) that can help with quests. You will be able to choose your quest on the map-hub of New York, you will manage precious nigh time, create your own coterie and will have to control your hunger so not to let the Beast inside you to take control over your actions.
