Developer The Astronauts announced the horror adventure game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, will launch for the Nintendo Switch on August 15.

"It’s always exciting to do something for the first time, so we can’t wait to hear from the players," said The Astronauts co-founder Adrian Chmielarz. "Switch is a completely different platform from the previous Nintendo consoles and it seems to get along well with The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Never before has touring Red Creek Valley under a blanket been so comfortable. And unsettling."

The Astronauts lead tech artist Andrzej Poznanski added, "Moving to Unreal Engine’s new version was a challenge and many parts of the codes were written from the scratch, but it was worth it. Nice thing about Unreal Engine 4 is how it can scale, so the engine works great on Nintendo Switch."

Not the type of game I'd buy but also very curious to see how it performs technically

Nice. Interesting to see how well it'll run, probably have a dynamic rez like some UE4 games.
