Othercide, a tactical-RPG horror from Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew, will be launching on Nintendo Switch later this summer, it has been confirmed.

The game has received a new trailer which confirms a 28th July release for other platforms, simultaneously promising a Switch version later down the line. It also gives us our first proper look at Othercide's gameplay, which looks just as dark and creepy as you'd expect from a horror game.

Here's an official description:

Descend into Humanity’s last hope. The Daughters, echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, are all who stand before Suffering and death. Lead your army to battle with all the skill you can muster. Your prowess in combat will decide their fate, shape their abilities and personality. Make the toughest decision and sacrifice one to heal another - survivors will get stronger, ready to fight the next battle.

Combat is an intricate dance of spectacular actions and counters: plan ahead of time and set up impressive chains of abilities to outsmart the enemy using the Dynamic Timeline System. Fight in epic boss battles against the sources of Suffering - dread creatures pulled from the worst of Humanity’s crimes against itself.

You will fight. You will fail. You will rise again.


Nintendo Switch pre-orders will be available "soon", so we're hopeful that the final release date won't be too far behind.
