Today we are thrilled to announce that horror-themed action-adventure Kwaidan ~Azuma manor story~ will soon receive physical release for Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders open with online retail partner Playasia later this week on Thursday, August 10th at 11:00pm Hong Kong time (11:00am ET / 8:00am PT / 4:00pm UK).
It is the dawn of the Showa era, Japan in the 1930s. In a rural manor, a very long night is about to begin. Explore the depths of the Azuma Manor, fighting off devilish Yoki while avoiding traps and solving devious puzzles as you strive to save the Azuma family. Kwaidan ~Azuma manor story~ mixes classic 3D horror action with point-and-click adventure for an experience that’s equal parts fresh and nostalgic. With no guns, strategy is required to take on the Yoki in close encounters using traditional weapons and exorcism tools such as naginata, magatama and a mirror that releases a deadly aura.
As you explore the grounds of the mansion, you can call up a cursor to examine points of interest and discover items to aid you in your quest. Kwaidan ~Azuma manor story~ is a unique blend of action-adventure with suspenseful survival scenarios. Retro polygon graphics invoke the style of genre classics with movie reel presentation. Select between Origin Mode for authentic "tank" controls or Modern Mode for standard analog movement and a new subtle cel-shaded look.
Kwaidan ~Azuma manor story~ is originally developed by Gudouan and DICO and will be published in physical release by Eastasiasoft Limited in partnership with Rainy Frog. Limited Editions will include the game, manual, soundtrack CD and numbered certificate in a collector’s box. Standard copies will also be available as an open pre-order.
