Launch Trailer: Vampyr Arrives on Nintendo Switch

You can now take your blood-sucking on the go with this release.

By Chris Morse

DONTNOD Entertainment’s Vampyr is now available on the Nintendo Switch and a brand-new launch trailer is here to celebrate the occasion. The World War I-era vampire title has been around on other platforms for a little over a year, but bringing games to the popular hybrid console is typically a savvy business move these days.

You can grab up your copy digitally on the Nintendo eShop or order up a physical version on Amazon if having a physical cartridge suits you better than making room for new downloads.

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. It is available now on Nintendo Switch as well. As always, follow Dead Entertainment for the latest horror gaming news.
