If you’re one of the exceedingly few people who own a PS Vita and are looking for something on the handheld console to scare you rigid, then check out Yomawari: Night Alone, which arrives on October 25th… just in time for Halloween.
Released in Japan last year, there’s a post from the developers over on the PS Blog which details how, despite its cutesy anime art-style, Yomawari will be giving nightmares to even the most hardcore horror gamers.
A young girl is walking her dog Poro around town at dusk when a tragic accident forces her to return home with only Poro’s leash in hand. The girl’s sister commands her to stay home while she goes out into the night to search for the dog. Time passes. Growing impatient, the girl decides to search for her missing sister and dog herself.
But when she steps foot outside, she realizes that this is not the same town. The darkness has made the town unfamiliar, and she appears to be utterly alone… save for the spirits that stalk her. The girl must hide from, outsmart, or outrun the hunting spirits while she searches for clues to find her loved ones.
