‘Blair Witch’ Coming to Nintendo Switch
- Will release sometime this Summer.
- As of now, a digital only release.
- Currently available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam.
Developer Bloober Team has announced that their first person psychological horror adventure Blair Witch will be releasing on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop this Summer. Since its initial reveal and its Gamescom 2019 gameplay, it was a welcome release on Xbox One and PC via Steam back in 2019. In December of the same year, Blair Witch made its way to PlayStation 4, and it’s a title worth checking out if you’re a fan of the genre.
If you’re unfamiliar with Blair Witch, you’ll quickly learn that evil resides in the woods. It’s a new psychological horror title that is story-driven, and it’s based upon a film that released back in 1999 titled The Blair Witch Project. This title aims to study the reactions of players, based on how they deal with fear and stress. The story follows a young boy who has disappeared in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland in 1996. You’ll play as a former police officer named Ellis, who also happened to have a troubled past. Despite this, you decide to join the search for the missing child. What will begin as an ordinary and innocent investigation, will quickly transform into a devastating nightmare. Other features are as follows:
- A Story of the Human Descent into Darkness – From the creative minds behind the critically acclaimed Layers of Fear, experience first-hand the toll that fear can take on the mind in an original story inspired by the cinematic lore of Blair Witch.
- Find a Way through the Haunted Woods – With just your loyal dog Bullet by your side, navigate your way through a cursed forest that warps and distorts both time and space.
- Your Sanity Against Her Curse – Stand against the horrors of the Blair Witch and the decaying sanity of a man burdened by his past.
