Layers of Fear 2 Sails Onto Nintendo Switch Next Week

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 is arriving on the Nintendo Switch this May 20th, bringing with it plenty of ship-related trauma.

Developed by Bloober Team, who is also responsible for The Medium and Blair Witch (and the original Layers of Fear), Layers of Fear 2 is a psychological horror that casts you as an actor roaming a mysterious ocean liner. At the beck and call of an equally enigmatic director, it’s up to you to figure out what’s really going on.

This oceanic nightmare is currently available on PC, Xbox and PlayStation but soon you’ll be able to take the horror on the go with the Nintendo Switch version. Yes, you too can have the joy of sharing the game’s jumpscares with the other people on the train. Why wait for Twitch viewers when you can bring the show to a new audience?

However, those jumpscares are relatively few and far between. We weren’t all that impressed with the game, even though we loved the original. We praised the game’s environments but concluded our review saying that “short on puzzles and scares, Layers of Fear 2 ultimately feels like an overly dark walking simulator.”

Still, if you do think Layers of Fear 2 will float your boat, you can get your hands on it when it arrives on Switch next Thursday May 20th.
