Back in August, we reported on Tormented Souls coming to the Nintendo Switch “soon”, but it appears now the horror title will not be in time for the spooky season. Instead, PQube, Dual Effect, and Abstract Digital Works announced it will be launching on the Switch in early 2022.
Tormented Souls will be sold both physically and digitally on the hybrid console. Check out the trailer:
About Tormented Souls
Tormented Souls is a return to classic fixed-perspective survival horror, inspired by cult classics such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Dropping into the secluded town of Winterlake, players investigate the disappearance of missing twin girls within the halls of an abandoned mansion-turned-hospital. Unspeakable horrors and mind-bending challenges await at every corner. Players must collect and combine resources, build weapons, and solve puzzles to unravel the mystery – and survive the night.
In the terrifying world of Tormented Souls, players will discover:
- Welcome to Winterlake – Lead to the small, isolated town of Winterlake, something terrible happens to Caroline Walker. Waking in the dead of night, naked and alone, hooked up to decrepit medical equipment, Caroline must fight for her life as she explores the halls of the abandoned mansion. As the previous inhabitants run amuck, players must scavenge essential resources and tools to decipher clues and create a variety of weapons to protect themselves from the darkness within.
- Keep Your Wits About You – Nothing is quite as it seems in Winterlake. Cleverly combine items and scour the mansion for clues as players face cryptic and unusual puzzles throughout the grounds of the mansion. Mirrors provide a gateway to another place and time – investigate even the seemingly mundane to discover ways to manipulate the very fabric of reality and seek your escape.
- You are Never Alone in the Dark – The mansion may seem stark and abandoned, but the deeper you venture, the more overwhelming the horrors within become. From terrifying, wheelchair-bound atrocities to vile disembowelled crawlers prowling the halls, these tormented medical monsters aren’t the only threats that Caroline must face. There are also darker threats at play – quite literally. Early on, you are warned not to let the shadows embrace you…
There is no word on an exact release date, just an early 2022 window, but we know it will cost $19.99 USD. Keep an eye out for more details.
