eastasiasoft, Top Hat Studios and Suzaku have confirmed that Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story will release on Nintendo Switch this week.
The Kickstarter-backed 2.5D game mixes cyberpunk themes with traditional Cantonese folklore, and seeks “to return the horror genre to its roots.” That will return to the slow, fearful creep of dread rather than relying on over-the-top action and jump scares.
Set in 2083 Neo Hong Kong, the developer has taken inspiration from games such as Clock Tower and Fatal Frame.
After a young woman called Mei-Lin Mak is dragged into a maelstrom of supernatural horror, peering into the century-old mystery will force her to question her perception of reality and her trust of her cybernetic eyes.
The ruins of Chong Sing Apartments hide a bloody mystery that is illuminated by both the traditions of Chinese folklore and the innovations of the industrial future.
To escape her nightmare, Mei-Lin must explore this complex – working to piece together the stories of 14 lost souls to discover the truth behind her own family curse.
Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 7th January 2021.
