Blue Isle Studios has announced that Slender: The Arrival is now available on the Nintendo Switch. The game has previously seen releases on a number of other platforms including Steam, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. You can get the new Switch version right now for just $6.99 on the Nintendo eShop (that’s 30% off) according to the press release.

 

In the story of Slender: The Arrival, you are a woman named Lauren. You quickly find yourself searching for your missing friend, Kate. She recently became obsessed with Slender Man and all of the folklore surrounding him. According to those unfortunate enough to have seen him, he is always dressed in a black suit. His slender body towers above everyday people. Another distinctive attribute is his disturbingly featureless face.

You’ll need to find and use Kate’s forgotten flashlight to explore a number of different locales for answers. These include deserted houses, eerie forests, dark mines, and more. It won’t be easy though, as Slender Man himself will stalk you all the while. He’ll appear with little warning and seems to be watching you no matter where you go. His ability to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time will make your existence a tense one!

Slender: The Arrival is rated T for Teen due to blood and violence. You can find out more about the game at its official website.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
