A Nintendo Switch version of Oxenfree, a scary adventure game that originally came out on the Xbox One and PC, has been announced by its developer, Night School Studios. There’s no release date yet, but it’s yet another third party game that’s being ported to Nintendo’s console, and a horror game at that.
Oxenfree focuses on a teenage girl named Alex and her friends, who have all decided to travel to an abandoned military base called Edwards Island one night to have a campout. However, strange radio signals emanating from a cave on the island result in all of the kids being taken into a living nightmare as they attempt to escape from the ghosts that have them trapped on the island.
The game received positive reviews on release and got a great deal of praise for its presentation and writing, though some reviewers were left wanting more. While no indication of a sequel to Oxenfree is coming (a new ending was put out via an update, but nothing beyond that), the game being ported to a new platform will hopefully make it popular enough to warrant one if the story can support it.
The Nintendo Switch version of Oxenfree will be yet another third party game that has been ported over to the Nintendo Switch, which since its release has gotten not only a number of triple-A titles but also a good number of indie games too, such as Binding of Isaac (after a good deal of struggle from its developers), Yooka Laylee, Snipperclips, Stardew Valley, Snake Pass, and more.
So, if you haven’t played Oxenfree, have a Nintendo Switch, and are in the mood for something spooky as October gets closer and closer, then be on the lookout for a release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Oxenfree, whenever it releases on the Nintendo Switch.
