Slender: The Arrival Haunts Switch This June

Slender: The Arrival

From internet forums to your Nintendo Switch, Slender: The Arrival is set to bring the horror of the Slender Man over onto Nintendo’s mobile console on 20 June.

Already available on Xbox One, Mac, PC, and PlayStation 4 systems, Slender, this is the first mobile version of Slender: The Arrival, perfect for those long nighttime flights. The Arrival plays on the modern horror meme of the Slender Man. A bizarrely tall and emaciated figure, the Slender Man is a faceless entity that started life as a character on the Something Awful internet forums. As it took on cultural significance, the Slender Man concept spawned tales, Hollywood films, and Parsec Production’s Slender: The Eight Pages.

Slender: The Arrival is a fully fledged realization of that idea and survival horror game in its own right. It includes a full narrative experience, including a remake of the Eight Pages element. Coming to Nintendo Switch, the experience sets players on the trail of their missing friend. After a seeming obsession with the internet folklore surrounding the Slender Man, she has vanished and you are out for answers. As players venture out into the wilderness they peer into the darkness, armed with just a flashlight to protect themselves. Abandoned houses, creepy mines, and unnerving forests all hold clues to the fate of your unsuspecting friend. Prepare yourself, with the new trailer below:

Slender: The Arrival describes the game, developed by Blue Isle Studios, as a foreboding world of sensory deprivation and a terror-filled story. Haunting visions and audio cues are used throughout to create a healthy dose of tension and paranoia. As players delve into this environment, the Slender Man stalks them, a foreboding presence that is always ready to pounce.

Slender: The Arrival is ready to put your nerves on edge this June. You can check out more details on the official website and find it on the Nintendo eShop at launch.
