Yesterday, the first-person shooter survival horror game Dementium: The Ward was announced for the Nintendo Switch.
Dementium was a DS game later brought to the 3DS as Dementium Remastered.
It’s also one of the games I picked up ahead of the 3DS eShop closing, since at the time there was no sign that it would get a port.
The first hint of something happening came in April, when Dementium director Jools Watsham tweeted that his company Atooi had the rights to make Dementium sequels and ports.
Now that’s coming to fruition with the announcement of Dementium: The Ward for the Nintendo Switch. It will be out on October 12, right in the middle of the spooky season.
In an interview with GameXplain, Watsham discusses adapting the game for a single-screen system, along with quality-of-life additions and other adjustments for the Switch version. It’s a good video to watch if you’re interested in how the new remaster will compare to the previous versions.
Since I never played the Dementium games before, maybe I should put the remaster on my list to play this October… or maybe I’ll play the 3DS version, since I already have it. Either way, it’s exciting to see a niche horror series like Dementium make a return!---
