Call of Cthulhu brings cosmic horror to the Nintendo Switch on October 8. Hold on to your sanity as you watch the Switch Release Date Trailer, which showcases the fantastic response the game received upon launch from press.

The Nintendo Switch version of Call of Cthulhu is the full experience – prepare for “perhaps one of the finest cosmic horror experiences in modern gaming”, according to IGN, with an investigation that leads you ever closer to the most unmentionable horror. The murky depths call your name.
