Yomawari: Night Alone is an excellent survival horror title that will keep players on their toes for the duration of its four hours long campaign. Nippon Ichi Software‘s latest title goes back to the horror genre’s roots, letting go of modern traditions and bombastic set pieces, and focusing on a more personal story instead.
Companies seem to relish the opportunity to bring older games to the Nintendo Switch. One of those companies is NIS America, as it has already brought Disgaea 1 Complete and Disgaea 5 Complete to the platform. Now, it is doing the same thing in October 2018 with Yomawari: The Long Night Collection, a compilation containing Yomawari: Night Alone and Yomawari: Midnight Shadow. But what are these games? What should people know about them?
Gary Hartley Wrote: Yomawari: Night Alone is creeping horror done right. Rarely, if ever, will you find yourself overly disturbed by some perverse grotesquery or suffer a cheap jump scare at something lurching suddenly out of the shadows. It’s different; more subtle. Instead of being in your face the entire time, Yomawari specialises at putting you in a constant state of unease. Of exploring a twisted world dressed up in normality, but, at the same time, being completely wrong on almost every level.
Ian Howarth: "Until we do get that next genre-defining horror gem, Yomawari is a nice distraction that will hopefully be worked on to bring us something even more sinister and satisfying in the future."
