Vita exclusives are a very rare treat nowadays, but this October the Vita will be getting a jolt of horror when Nippon Ichi Software’s Yomawari: Night Alone hits Sony’s handheld.
Yomawari follows the tale of a little girl who has just lost both her dog and sister to the shadows of the night. She sets out on a dangerous journey with only a flashlight and her backpack, in hopes of learning more about these disappearances.
Yomawari: Night Alone is said to feature “a unique blend of survival horror with stealth action gameplay” and focuses on childhood fears, more specifically the fear of the dark. Yomawari also features an open world that “allows for maximum freedom to wander anywhere at almost any time.”
As an added bonus, if you buy Yomawari: Night Alone at retail you’ll also get Nippon Ichi Software’s mysterious puzzle platformer htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary and both games will come bundled on the same cart. There will also be a limited edition of the game (that’s available for preorder now) that includes a Yomawari: Night Alone softcover art book with developer commentary, official art, sketches, and behind-scenes looks at the game (12 pages), a htol#NiQ: The Firefly Diary Official Art Book with developer commentary, official art sketches, and behind-the-scenes looks at the game (36 pages), 18-track OST in a jewel case, and Collector’s box.
Yomawari: Night Alone is scheduled to release on PlayStation Vita and Windows PC in North America on October 25, 2016 and in Europe on October 28, 2016. Just in time for Halloween!
