Fantastico Studio has teamed up with Ruggero Deodato to release Cannibal on Nintendo Switch.
This is the fourth chapter in the director’s Cannibals saga, with the news being made to mark the fortieth anniversary of his cult movie, Cannibal Holocaust.
The next episode won’t be a movie, but an interactive horror graphic adventure that Deodato has written the script for and will direct.
This Unity-developed game will let you take control of different characters whose conversations and actions will reveal the background behind how they came to lead a desperate expedition to the virgin jungles of Borneo.
“Experimenting is one of the things that I consider most fundamental in this field. What really interests me is to test myself, try something new, maybe that’s also why I waited so
long to return to the world of the jungle and cannibals,” Deodato explains.
“At the time we went to the jungle, lived with the natives, showed the public a reality that they could never have personally experienced and understood. Today, instead there are dozens of documentaries and films that show life and nature of those places, and for me the theme had lost its appeal.
“Meeting the Fantastico Studio guys offered me the opportunity to return to those atmospheres, to those themes, but trying something new: contaminating my world with the video games language is a new challenge, making the story interactive opens up many new possibilities and I hope it will also help to bring young people closer to my narrative universe.”
Cannibal will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in November 2020.
