Atari has announced that its stealth-horror adventure Haunted House will be released on Nintendo Switch this week.

Orbit Studio is behind this “roguelite revival of the first-ever survival horror game,” which has reimagined the Atari 2600 classic.

It draws inspiration from the original game while adopting modern characteristics, resulting in “a unique 2D isometric horror experience where stealth and precise strategy trump the played-out jumpscare.”

You play as Lyn Graves, the niece of renowned treasure hunter Zachary Graves. After learning of her uncle’s disappearance, Lyn and her friends head to his mansion to investigate only for her friends to become swept into the shadows.

With shifting walls, unpredictable enemy encounters and “ookie-spookie” frights, you must guide Lyn back to her friends and stop the eerie ectoplasms that have infested the mansion.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • All-Ages Thrill Ride: The whimsical, cartoonish art style only thinly veils the chills and thrills in Haunted House! Expertly riding the line between goofy and spooky, the game keeps things rated E with its primarily stealth-based gameplay and light combat sequences.
  • Unlockable Characters: As Lyn explores the Haunted House, she’ll free her trapped friends, who become playable characters you can use to dive deeper into the mansion. Each friend possesses different stats, so depending on who you explore the mansion with, it’ll be a totally new experience!
  • Atari Easter Eggs: The game is full of collectibles and lore based on the original Haunted House and other classic favorites from Atari’s golden age.
  • Did We Mention Stealth?: With combat de-emphasized, players must focus on stealth movement and solving challenges unseen in the shadows, along with utilizing the arsenal of traps and items at their disposal

Haunted House will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 12 October 2023.
