The Sinking City comes to Switch this month

Lovecraftian horror title The Sinking City is on the way to the Nintendo Switch, and it’s coming up sooner than you might think.

Handheld horror

We reviewed The Sinking City on the PS4 not that long ago and liked it just fine, tagging it with an impressive 81%. A horror title with heavy detective elements, the game placed players in the shoes of a PI investigating a mysterious New England isle.

It’s there that Charles Reed finds there’s much more to the visions he’s been having than just a few bad dreams. Genre fans will know where this is all heading, since The Sinking City is heavily infused with Cthulhu mythos.

Currently on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, the game is now fast approaching launch for the Nintendo Switch. That’ll take place on September 12th, so just a few days from now.

Choices

Initially there will be two different versions made available for Switch, but they’ll both be digital. Though, as Sergey Oganesyan explains, a cartridge might happen at some point too.

We initially wanted to do a physical release – we know lots of players prefer these – but we were eventually forced to put this off for now. We didn’t want to take too long to release the game on the Nintendo Switch, but going into the logistics and distribution of physical editions would push the release back by months. Frogwares is self-publishing this version but we’re not a big company and don’t have  the resources to handle such a complex process ourselves. So, we’re focusing on the digital release first and might release a physical edition later.

As for the game itself, here’s a look at it in action.

The standard Switch version of The Sinking City will run you $49.99 USD, while the Deluxe Edition will cost $69.99. The difference? The Deluxe version will include extra side missions, so kind of a bigger world for you to play in.
