During the latest Nintendo Direct, a release date for the Switch port of DONTNOD’s World War I-era vampire game, Vampyr, was revealed. The title will arrive just in time for Halloween on October 29th and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon if you still prefer to collect physical releases over digital.

Vampyr follows the story of Doctor Jonathan Reid, who returns to London after the war and finds himself awakening as a vampire. The game has some investigative elements as well as compelling decision-making in that you can actually play through the entire game without killing citizens. There are consequences to your actions as a player and you get to decide who is innocent and who to feed on. The title was originally released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in June 2018.
