Nintendo Download: A Ghastly Ship Sails Into Port

Time to get spooky! The Nintendo Switch gets a visit from the mysterious title Return of the Obra Dinn this week, the console’s only headline game.

Mystery on the high seas

Kind of an odd game for a headliner, as we’ve seen a bunch of big name games as of late, but nonetheless here we are with Return of the Obra Dinn. That’s not to say though, that this timely game doesn’t look cool.

Return of the Obra Dinn focuses on a missing ship, one that turns up five years past its scheduled arrival. With tattered sails and a missing crew, it’s up to players to figure out what happened. Not only does it sound good and creepy, but it’s also got a GameBoyish, monochrome aesthetic to its graphics, which is also pretty neat.

Though this one is the spotlighted game of the week, there’s actually a bunch more second tier titles hitting as well. New Arcade Archive and Sega Ages games are on the way, as well as new JackBox and Skullgirls games, and more.

Scroll down for the full list.

  • Return of the Obra Dinn – In 1802, the merchant ship Obra Dinn set out for the Orient with over 200 tons of trade goods. It never arrived. After five long years lost at sea, the missing ship has drifted back into the port at Falmouth with damaged sails and no visible crew. Your mission: dispatch immediately, find means to board the ship and discover what went wrong. This critically acclaimed first-person adventure, from the creator of the indie hit Papers, Please, features evocative visuals and unique exploration-based gameplay. You’ll need to use all your skills of logical deduction to reveal the terrifying truth behind this irresistible mystery. Return of the Obra Dinn will be available on Oct. 18.
