Horror Game Layers of Fear Coming to Nintendo Switch in February

Layers of Fear is a first person psychological horror game from indie devs Bloober Team. It launched on PC, Xbox One and PS4 awhile ago, but now the Nintendo Switch is getting its own version on February 21st. This version is a remaster and redesign of the original game made specially for the Switch, so hopefully none of the original’s brooding atmosphere and unsettling visuals will be lost along the way. It will also come with the Inheritance DLC, which is a great value added extra.

Layers of Fear follows the story of a struggling painter as he goes to strange lengths to finish is painting. The house becomes a playground of twisted masonry and strange delusions, with blood and ooze adding extra splashes of the macabre. It really is a quite striking game, striking in both visual style and the darkness of the narrative.

I played through Layers of Fear and its DLC around 8 months ago, and it has been one of the stand out horror games for me in recent years. It’s great that Switch players will soon have the chance to dance with the madness it contains.

Layers of Fear for Switch has an RRP of £17.99 / $ 19.99 and will be available on the Nintendo eShop on Feb 21st.
