    The Witch’s House MV releases October 13 for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch

    A RPG Maker classic.

    DANGEN Entertainment and Fummy announced Japanese horror RPG The Witch’s House MV releases October 13 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    Here’s an overview of The Witch’s House MV via DANGEN Entertainment:

    A young girl, Viola, is drawn inexorably to a mysterious manor that seems to change behind her back. It is a place of pain, turmoil and death. Plumb its detestable depths and abominable history. Untangle riddles that bar your perilous path. And flee the hellish halls of The Witch’s House.
    The Witch’s House, originally released in 2012, falls within the tradition of Japanese horror RPGs with heavy emphasis on puzzle-solving and jump scares. Among other entries in the genre such as Ib and Ao Oni, The Witch’s House surprised fans with pixel-art that conceals truly frightening horror.
    The Witch’s House is deliberately designed with traps at *almost* every turn–sudden death is unpredictable and it keeps players on their toes. Anything can happen at any time.
    With completely remastered visuals, The Witch’s House MV will feel fresh to even the most familiar old-school fans. Fans will also be greeted by a new difficulty mode that includes new events upon completion of the base game.
    Features:
    • Completely reimagined graphics that make for a beautifully terrifying experience.
    • Brand new unlockable difficulty mode with new events and dialogue.
    • Violence and gore that are not recommended for the squeamish. Player discretion advised.
    • Sudden deaths that lurk around every corner and await every misstep.
    • Items must be used deliberately as players solve the puzzles for themselves.
    • Fixed save points (just keep an eye out for the talking black cat).
    • Convenient controls with diagonal movement. Gamepads are supported and recommended.
    • Headphones *strongly* recommended.

    “The Witch’s House MV is an RPG Maker MV remake of the original game, which was released back in 2012. We remade all the graphics, including map tiles and character sprites, and worked hard to enhance the atmosphere and 2D beauty in The Witch’s House. It took us five times as many hours to create this version, but we feel like we’ve finally managed to satisfy ourselves,” says Fummy, creator of The Witch’s House MV. “Aside from graphical improvements, we also added two new difficulty settings that were not present in the original 2012 version. The first difficulty setting is a more accessible one that allows players to instantly retry. The other difficulty setting is a more difficult one that is only unlocked by those who manage to reach the game’s true ending. The world of The Witch’s House has been reborn anew, and we sincerely hope you will all enjoy it.”

    Lastly, The Witch’s House MV is available now for PC via Steam.
