Bandai Namco and Supermassive Games bring an unexpected addition to the Nintendo Switch library: The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan. This bodes well for horror fans wanting to grab even more games on the handheld system.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan is available now on the eShop and is waiting for you to hop right in. The first installation of the Dark Pictures Anthology sees a group of friends sailing off on holiday for a nice diving trip. Nothing could possibly go wrong, right?
Pretty soon things are no longer ship-shape as a storm rolls in bringing ill fate for the group of friends. Discover the horrors on the ship in the full game, complete with the extended chapter ‘Flooded’, and the Curator’s Cut game mode available in the Switch game.
If you need some moral support as you tread the deep dark waters, you can play with a friend via the shared story multiplayer, or bring up to five friends for a round of couch co-op.
We highly recommend the Dark Pictures Anthology to fans of horror games as they’re all cinematic (and feature recognisable faces) and stand-alone adventures to pick up at any time. Each entry focuses on a different type of scare with mystical and murderous elements.
Let’s address the elephant in the room here – there’s a caveat at the bottom of the product page that states the Nintendo Switch version of the game runs at 24 FPS. For context, Breath of The Wild runs at a solid 30 FPS and doesn’t look bad, though the Man of Medan prides itself on its cinematic appearance so may take a hit from the lower rate.
