Survival Horror Game 'Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles' Infects Nintendo Switch Next Week

Following the recent release of Outbreak: Epidemic on Switch, Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles – the third game in the Outbreak series – will arrive on Nintendo’s portable console next Thursday, November 5.

Head on over to the Nintendo eShop to pre-order the game for $11.04 (15% off). On November 12th, the game will return to its original MSRP of $12.99.

"Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles pays homage to the classic Resident Evil trilogy while adding a smidge of Silent Hill to the mix. The result is a unique single-player experience featuring bone-crushing difficulty, limited saves via consumable floppy disks, and panic-inducing encounters NOT for the faint of heart."

"Featuring fixed camera angles – a staple of the survivor horror genre since Alone in the DarkOutbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles is the most atmospheric title in the Outbreak series – taking players from a well-lit, stately manor (creepy in its own right!) to a nightmarish environment far below ground."

The Switch version of Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles carries over improvements and bug fixes made to the original Steam release, and includes support for the Switch Pro Controller, Joy-Cons in tabletop mode, and HD Rumble.
