Into The Dead 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch on October 25th via games publisher Versus Evil just in time for trick or treat season. The Into the Dead franchise has amassed over 100 million downloads via mobile, and one would expect that success will reach the Nintendo Switch universe as well.
Licensed Ghostbusters and Night of the Living Dead content will also be sold separate on the eShop and both are featured in the physical edition of the game.
The adventure has gamers facing off against a horde of undead over 60 levels and 36 side story missions. Twenty five unique weapons across 8 different classes are featured in the action packed experience.
“Into the Dead 2 on Nintendo Switch will give players plenty to sink their teeth into with its heart-pounding, arcade-style gameplay. We’re thrilled to include the licensed Ghostbusters and Night of The Living Dead content, which make Into the Dead 2 an essential addition to any Halloween gaming sessions.” Said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil.

One of the highlights from the Xbox E3 Briefing, especially if you’re a movie fan, is the announcement of the upcoming game Blair Witch. In partnership with Lionsgate, the Bloober Team revealed that the first-person psychological horror game Blame Witch is in development.
The 1996 set project, which places gamers in the terrifying environment of the Black Hills Forest, centers on the investigation of a young boy’s disappearance.
“We are thrilled, and honestly a little scared, to bring all players, especially fans of Blair Watch, back into the haunted woods,” said Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno. “It is genuinely an honor to be working on such a hair-raising, paradigmatic experience, which defined so many of our lives!”
Blair Witch hits Xbox One and PC on August 30, 2019.
Close To The Sun, a first person horror game from publisher Wired Productions and game studio Storm in a Teacup, arrives on PC May 2 on the Epic Games store. The title will also come out later this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Set in the 19th century where futurist Nikola Tesla chased his passion for changing the world, Close to the Sun finds gamers aboard a colossal vessel named the Helios. Though it was initially a craft aimed to further scientific research, it is now filled with a haunted atmosphere. The smell of rotting flesh as well as a sign that says “Quarantine” are just two signs that this vessel may not be a safe haven. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Gamers who pre-purchase Close to the Sunon EpicGames.com will receive an exclusive, limited edition digital artbook.
Monster Slayers, a deck building RPG adventure that employs an immersive card-based battle system, hits Nintendo Switch on April 5. As players create a hero to join the Monster Slayers Guild, they undergo a quest through the dangerous Northern Valley to defeat an all powerful villain named Harbinger to become a true Monster Slayer. Developed by Nerdook Productions (Reverse Crawl), the game is inspired by Peter Whalen’s inspired roguelike game Dream Quest.
Gamers battle undead goblins, outlaws, and mighty dragons during the adventure, and they can choose 12 different classes to choose from as they start their journey (Rogue, Ranger, Knight, Barbarian, Cleric, Wizard, Assassin, Beastmaster, Apothecary, Brute, Monk, and Necromancer). To stave off monotony, the developers ensure that each play through is different as each enemy encounter and loot discovery are randomly generated.

A game that claims to have the narrative echoes of Stranger Things, The X-Files, and Twin Peaks is not one to be ignored, and hopefully adventure game Trüberbrook lives up to its bold proclamations.
Gamers take on the role of Hans Tannhauser, an American scientist who wins a European vacation in the late 1960s. Initially enamored with the remote German village of Trüberbrook, Hans realizes that this sleepy environment holds a wealth of mystery and possible danger.
Each scene in the game, according to the developers, were staged with actual physical lighting. The handcrafted nature of Trüberbrook is evident in the trailer, and considering the title achieved its Kickstarter goal of $200,000 in just 30 hours, this title should have a following.
Trüberbrook hits PC, Mac, and Linux on March 12, with an April 17th release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
