Publisher Eastasiasoft has announced that it is bringing AOne Games' gory, horror-style one-on-one fighter Omen Of Sorrow to Switch and PS5 in physical form.

This edition will boast 'expanded' content when compared to the previously confirmed Steam version. That means revised story content and new endings for the game's arcade mode. The game hit Xbox One in September of last year, and that edition will also receive this content via a free update.

To cap it all off, cross-play online multiplayer is coming to all versions of the game published by Eastasiasoft. No release date has been given so far, but pre-orders for the physical editions open on February 24th at 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET via online retailer Play-Asia. 2,000 limited editions will be produced for Switch and 1,000 for PlayStation 5. The 'standard' edition will also be available to pre-order.

Confusingly, publisher Soedesco released a physical version of the game on PS4 some time ago. It is not known if this version will also benefit from the revised content.

Omen Of Sorrow currently holds a rating of 64 on Metacritic. Its cast is a mix of horror tropes, such as vampires, werewolves and other monsters.

Here's some PR for the game:
