Dark Nights with Poe and Munro Gets a Console Release Date

Dark Nights with Poe and Munro, a minisode-based FMV adventure, is coming to console.

Styled as series of short episodes, though released in one big chunk, it has you following, and guiding Ellis Munro and John “Poe” Pope as they bump heads with all manner of odd phenomenon. The pair, who previously cropped up in The ShapeShifting Detective, have an odd relationship, to say the least, and now console owners can delve deeper into this odd duo.

Reviewing it on the PC, we remarked that “its episodic format, coupled with excellent performances and quality writing, means that Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is well worth tuning in for.” We didn’t enjoy it quite as much as The Shapeshifting Detective, but we got a kick out of the dynamic between the pair which, depending on which path you follow, might not be all it seems.

Dark Nights is set for a PS4 and Xbox One release, playable on the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X through backwards compatibility. The latter two versions will arrive on May 4th, and while there’s a Switch release planned there’s no definite release date for that version.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
