Night School Studio has teased that its paranormal thriller Oxenfree (our review) will be arriving on Nintendo Switch. We don’t have a release date yet — the announcement came in the form of a tweet with a bit of morse code that when translated simply reads, “Coming soon.”

Oxenfree was one of the nominees for our 2016 Game of the Year. Not only did it send chills down my spine with an intriguing ghostly story, but it also managed to portray an accurate picture of being a teenager through well-written dialogue and character development.
This announcement comes on the heels of Nintendo’s Nindies showcase, and Oxenfree should fit nicely with the other indies coming to the platform. I expect we might hear more at PAX this weekend, and maybe get an official release date. We’ll keep you updated!
