Prepare to be Terrified -- Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is Coming West This Fall

Like to fight ghosts with only a flashlight and travel an empty city at midnight? Then check out the sequel to last year's Yomawari, entitled Yomawari: Midnight Shadows -- now on PS4.

If you're a fan of last year's Nippon Ichi Software's SD-styled survival horror, Yomawari: Night Alone, then prepare to walk the nightmare once again as NIS America has confirmed that they will bring its sequel, titled Yomawari: Midnight Shadows, to the western world this fall.

The game is a new addition in Japan's market as well, as it was only recently announced in the latest edition of Dengeki Playstation as Shin Yomawari a couple of days ago. It seemed like the prequel's success encouraged NIS America to immediately announce a western release right after the Japanese one.

An overview of the game, given by NIS America, is as follows:

The follow-up to 2016’s cult horror hit Yomawari: Night Alone, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows introduces two brand-new girls, Yui and Haru, to the night and the spirits who haunt it. Separated by a mysterious attacker, each girl will explore haunting and bizarre locations, face the terrors of the night, and test their courage and wits to survive and reconnect with one another.

It has been confirmed that Midnight Shadows' map will be more than twice that of the original Yomawari. Just like its prequel, Midnight Shadows will use a quarter-view camera that will change to a side view once you enter special locations.

More locations can be explored, including a western-styled mansion and libraries. There is no mention of new ghosts or monsters that players can encounter yet, but we can hope for more announcements closer to the release date.

So far, NIS America has only stated "Fall 2017" as its launch window, with no exact date, but we will update you once NIS America release more details. If you can't wait to get scared, though, the Japanese version will be released on August 24. Both releases of Yomawari: Midnight Shadows will hit PS4 and PS Vita, while its western release will additionally receive a Steam version.
