You'll soon have one more game to scare yourself with on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as Slender: The Arrival is headed to both platforms.

Publisher Midnight City confirmed with GameSpot that the game is coming to the two current-gen systems, as suggested by a recent European ratings board listing. However, a release date hasn't yet been decided upon, so you'll likely to need to find something else to keep you occupied this Halloween.

It's possible the game could also end up on Wii U (as suggested by the same PEGI listing), but that's not a certainty--Midnight City said it's "still evaluating the title for a port to Wii U and cannot confirm [it] at this time."

Following a PC release last year, The Arrival came to Xbox 360 and PS3 last month (you can see a trailer for those versions above). In just over a month, the game has combined to sell more than 100,000 copies worldwide on consoles, Midnight City told us.

The Arrival is a follow-up to Slender: The Eight Pages, a spooky indie game featuring the fictitious Slender Man. Check out our review of the PC version of The Arrival to see what we thought of it.
