The excellent feedback from the public and critics obtained with The Vanishing of Ethan Carter leads the authors of The Astronauts to announce their transposition on the Nintendo Switch, with a surprise. The new version of this iconic narrative adventure, in fact, is already ready and is preparing to land on the hybrid console.
The new console version of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will make its entry into the already rich Switch game library starting from Thursday 15 August. The title was ported by SPIN Software with the contribution and external support of The Astronauts team.
According to the authors led by Adrian Chmielarz , the change of graphic engine with the transition to the latest version of the Unreal Engine 4 (already started with the PS4 port of 2015 ) has greatly facilitated the conversion work carried out by SPIN to give users of Nintendo Switch the possibility to play for the first time, or to re-face the adventure in a new context, one of the most representative exponents of the genre.
From a strictly content point of view, the title will offer the same experience as the original masterpiece and, consequently, will continue to gravitate around the figure of Detective Paul Prospero and his search for Ethan Carter, a young boy from Red Creek Valley who disappeared into thin air after having him wrote a letter in which he claimed to be in grave danger.
