Slender: The Arrival set to Terrorize Gamers on September 23

Horror meme Slenderman is coming to consoles at the end of September in "Slender: The Arrival," and is slated for eventual release on the Oculus Rift.

After enjoying his status as a popular internet meme, Slenderman is now coming to two major consoles this month. Slender: The Arrival hits the PS3 on September 23rd in North America, closely followed by a European PS3 release and a global XBox 360 release on September 24th.

A sequel to the 2012 freeware hit Slender: The Eight Pages, Slender: The Arrival is a first-person horror game, the product of a collaboration between Eight Pages creator Mark Hadley (Agent Parsec) and Blue Isle Studios. In addition to the dimly lit environments and terrifying titular character of the first game, players of The Arrival will be treated to new levels, new characters, and a newer, longer storyline to mark the game series' first appearance on consoles.

An enigmatic still from The Arrival gives players a glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming DLC and console release.

The game will also be supported on the Oculus Rift, with the update free to owners of the game.

Owners of the original game on the PC will be able to get The Arrival as DLC via Steam on the game's release.

Slender: The Arrival is published by Midnight City. The game will cost $9.99 on the PS3.
