Perception arrived on most major platforms in May, bringing a unique horror experience to fans of the genre.
The game is now coming to the Switch, and Deep End Games chose the perfect time for its release: Halloween. The release date is the same in both Europe and North America, and it will sell for 14.99 USD.
For those yet to play it, in Perception you are a blind woman and the gameworld is only visible in outlines and minuscule details. You are forced to use sound as your guide to survive the adversary hunting you.
This version is the enhanced one. Those who own the game on other platforms will get this version in a free update. The original game will still be available, under the “spooky” mode, but there will now also be a harder “scary” mode that sets players back to the beginning of the game with each death. There will be a story mode where death will not occur at all, allowing players to explore without concern for game over.
In a discussion with Eurogamer, the developers talked about addressing feedback. They shared details on how they worked to offer balance changes, such as new checkpoints and an overhauled warning system, among other adjustments. You can read the full developer’s discussion here.
