Super Rare Games is partnering up with Acid Wizard Studio and Crunching Koalas to bring a physical release of the acclaimed survival horror game, Darkwood, to the Nintendo Switch. If you want one you’ll need to act fast, as only 5,000 copies will be available globally! It goes on sale on October 8th at 10am PT/1pm ET (or 6pm BST) for $31. This package includes a full-color manual and interior artwork, as well as three trading cards and an exclusive sticker. The trading cards you get are randomly selected from a five-card set.


Darkwood‘s haunting experience gives you new perspective to survival horror with its top-down visuals. You’ll need to explore a constantly changing world and scavenge what you can, but you’d better hunker down and stay in to survive the cold dark of night. Your every choice has an impact on you or the inhabitants of Darkwood, so the game unfolds differently each time. You’ll meet spooky characters and be able to learn of their stories, but beware. It is unwise to trust anyone in this world, and so you will decide their fate.

Darkwood physical switch release


The game will not hold your hand with quest markers, so survival is all on you. You can extract a strange essence from the mutated fauna that populate the world. They can be injected into your blood, but may have certain unexpected consequences… Extracting the strange essence also helps you earn skills and perks.

As the nights in Darkwood continue to pass by one after another, the line between reality and nightmares becomes increasingly indiscernible. What will you do? You can find out more about the game at the official website.

He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general). 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.
