Free Style Games has revealed a release date for their competitive action game Obakeidoro! on Nintendo Switch.

Based on Japanese tag-based game Keidoro, this “exciting game of life and death” can be played with up to four players split into two teams.

There’s one player that is placed on the Ghost team, who, within the three-minute time limit, must catch all the players on the Human team.

The ghost can move freely through walls and trees, but, after capturing a Human player and placing them in the jail, will be unable to catch another for a brief amount of time.

Whereas the Human players are armed with one-time use lanterns that can temporarily stun the ghost. These are recharged if the human is freed from jail, but that will require that two switches are pressed for the captured player to escape.

Obakeidoro! will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on August 29th priced at £16.99 ($19.99).
