Bloober Team will release Layers of Fear: Legacy for Switch via the Nintendo eShop on February 21 for $19.99 / €19.99 / £17.99, the developer announced.

Layers of Fear: Legacy is based on the 2016-released PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC title Layers of Fear, but “remastered and redesigned to be a unique offering in the Nintendo Switch horror genre portfolio.” It also includes the “Inheritance” downloadable content.

Here is an overview of the game, via Bloober Team:

Layers of Fear: Legacy is a Nintendo Switch-exclusive first-person psychological horror game, which allows the player to take control of an insane painter bent on finishing his masterpiece. Focused on exploration of ever-changing environment of an atmospheric Victorian-era mansion and discovering the secret of the mental illness that had fallen on the main character. As painter’s delusions manifest in progressively unnerving forms, the players are challenged to face one of the most immersive and frightening experiences in the history of horror games.
