You will soon be able to take this asymmetrical horror game on the go.

As part of yesterday’s Nintendo Direct livestream event, it was announced that Dead by Daylight would be coming to the Nintendo Switch this fall. It’s refreshing to see Nintendo slowly shed the image that its consoles are mostly geared towards children as the video game company becomes more and more open to bringing violent and adult-oriented games to the platform.

Previously available on only PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer horror game that pits a killer player against four survivors. There are a number of original characters in the game, but it also features killers and survivors from several popular horror franchises, such as Halloween, Saw, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and more.

The Nintendo Switch port will feature all current content that has been released up until this point and should keep pace with the game’s various releases and events going forward. The best part of this release is that you will be able to play this in handheld mode for the first time ever, which should provide a relatively fresh experience, even for existing fans of the game.

Dead by Daylight for the Nintendo Switch will be available as a physical release as well as a digital download on the Nintendo eShop. The game will release sometime this fall.
