Darkness and Terror In The Latest Yomawari: The Long Night Collection Trailer

NIS America has shared a new trailer showing the terrors within Yomawari: The Long Night Collection — which includes both of the isometric survival horror games, Yomawari: Night Alone and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. The haunting game collection will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch on October 30 in North America — just in time for Halloween.

The trailer shows a young girl who’s venturing through a rural town engulfed in eerie darkness. Rather than continuing to travel blindly, she thankfully ends up finding a handy flashlight but after turning it on… she ends up spotting an evil creature that she quickly sprints away from.

It appears that the girl doesn’t just have one creature to worry about, though, as her speedy escape leads her to discover a haunting ghost-like spirit. As luck would have it, the spirit hasn’t noticed her, which lets her safely take cover in a nearby bush.

According to the collection’s key features listed on NIS America’s website, there will be plenty of creatures that lay in wait for you as each chapter of the game will have you encounter spiritual creatures inspired by Japanese urban legends.

Watch the trailer below to get an idea of what lurks in the darkness in Yomawari: The Long Night Collection.

The first game in the series, Yomawari: Night Alone is also available for the PlayStation Vita and PC, while the follow-up, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC.


Author’s Take: I’m excited about how the game features creatures that are inspired by Japanese urban legends. I’ll probably find myself doing some research on which of the game’s creatures represent certain legends — just like I did while playing Okami, which also includes plenty of Japanese legend references.
