The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is Getting a Switch Port

Independent developer The Astronauts have announced a Switch port for The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.

The horror-adventure game is coming to the hybrid console on August 15th.

“It’s always exciting to do something for the first time, so we can’t wait to hear from the players,” said The Astronauts co-founder Adrian Chmielarz in a press release. “Switch is a completely different platform from the previous Nintendo consoles and it seems to get along well with The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Never before has touring Red Creek Valley under a blanket been so comfortable. And unsettling.”

The Astronauts lead tech artist Andrzej Poznanski added, “Moving to Unreal Engine’s new version was a challenge and many parts of the codes were written from the scratch, but it was worth it. Nice thing about Unreal Engine 4 is how it can scale, so the engine works great on Nintendo Switch.”

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter has been available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
