Coming out tomorrow in the US and in Europe, Vaccine for Nintendo Switch looks a lot like a popular game that came out quite some time ago that included zombies, doors that opened painstakingly slowly and a scene that made me (more) scared to walk in front of windows at night. The difference here is that you’ve got a 30-minute time limit, in a randomly generated level, to cure an infected friend. Vaccine originally came out on the Wii U eShop and is now being ported over to the Nintendo Switch. The title will launch simultaneously on the US and European eShop and will set you back €9.99 / £8.99.
Here’s the trailer:
Here’s an overview for Vaccine:
30 min time limit and random layouts! Classic survival horror re-invented!
Find a vaccine for your infected friend before the time runs out, but be aware your friend will relapse sooner or later and you will have to find a new vaccine in a new randomly rebuilt house. Will you be able to uncover the mystery to save your friend once and for all!?
Vaccine is a new approach on Survival Horrors inspired by those of the 90s. You can choose between the two members of a special bio-hazard rapid response team, each starting with their own unique differential abilities. They are trapped in a strange house populated by dangerous mutated creatures, they will have to find a vaccine for another team member who is infected with a deadly virus.
Unless you uncover the mystery of the house, every time you bring back the vaccine, the infected team member will relapse and you will be presented with a new randomly rebuilt house. You will be able to gain experience points from different actions and use them on the skills you think will be more beneficial, bringing a more tactical approach compared to the games it takes inspiration from.
