I enjoyed The Sinking City quite a lot on my Switch, so I'm sure this title will do just fine.
That said, the visuals and performance were dramatically better on other consoles or PC and I imagine this title will be no different.
So The Sinking City has a visit from Sherlock?
A extreme case of i must have it ! Looks absolutely amazing !!
Does it play like Resident Evil?
If you love these style and genre of games The Sinking City, Vampyr, and the two Sherlock games (The Devils Daughter & Crimes and Punishment) are amazing! And this new game will be another great addition as I love Frogwares engine and game play. The Awakened is actually a remake of a classic game of theirs brought up to 2023 spec. These games fill a much needed blindspot in the Switch's library.
Got some heavy Hogwarts Legacy vibes there from pic and video but not sure if it's just because the engines of games are being so re-used these days.
Wow this looks good, is there any kind of combat or is it point click style stuff.
Its not on the eshop for pre order yet might want to correct that.. at least in America
