While we still don't have a release date quite yet, we can expect to see a more formal announcement before too long. Night School Studio has not released any details on how the gameplay will change on the Switch, such as if it will feature motion controls. This announcement is one of many titles coming to Switch that Nintendo revealed earlier this week.
Oxenfree follows teenager Alex and her friends on a trip to a local island for the weekend. During their stay, however, some strange happenings occur, leading the group uncover the secrets of the island, which may or may not contain ghosts and several paradoxes. It is an adventure game, but it doesn't play quite like the ones you may be used to. This game has no cut scenes and focuses on character interaction and conversations to progress the story.
It initially released for Xbox One and PC in January 2016 but has since been released on PS4, Linux and iOS. Later this month, Oxenfree will be available for free on Xbox One through Games with Gold.
