Fear Effect Sedna coming to Switch in early 2018

Posted on October 6, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Fear Effect Reinvented, a remake of the PlayStation original, was announced for Switch not too long ago. That won’t be the only Fear Effect game on the system, however.

As was announced on Twitter today, Fear Effect Sedna is coming to Switch. It should be available in early 2018.

We have more information about Fear Effect Sedna below, along with a video.

Be part of a new Fear Effect adventure with Fear Effect Sedna, a new game in the classic series made popular on the original PlayStation console. With a whole new story, and shifting to a pausable real-time tactical action style, players will be able to control the team strategically and tackle enemies and puzzles alike.

Fear Effect Sedna is set four years after the events of the original Fear Effect game, and things have changed for the team. Hana, freed from the Triad, lives with Rain in Hong Kong and works as an occasional mercenary, while Deke has grown apart from them since Glas returned to the US.

Hana accepts a small mission for a shadowy organization asking for her services. Her target: a mysterious ancient statuette held by the Chinese ambassador in France. She sees it as a good opportunity to visit her birthplace… But this ‘easy’ mission is about to lead Hana to something way bigger than she expected.

Meanwhile Glas is approached by a client who catches his attention enough that he soon sets out for Greenland.

How will these events bring the old team back together?

Fear Effect Sedna is dedicated to recreating the atmosphere and characters from the original Fear Effect. However, while there are familiar aspects of the game to previous incarnations of the franchise, you’ll find yourself immersed in a completely unique and new world with Fear Effect Sedna – one that will appeal to fans both old and new.

– New environments in isometric view: Explore the deep caves of Greenland, abandoned scientific complexes, underwater stations and ethereal realms based on Inuit mythology.
– A real-time tactical action game: Exploit your heroes’ special abilities and combine them to maximize your team’s effectiveness in attacks.
– A deep and mature story: Learn more about Fear Effect’s iconic characters’ past as they delve into this new mystery.
– Explore a whole new culture: Myths from the Inuit people are imbued with power of the elements and the cold sea. Meet and fight unexpected creatures from the spirit realm!

    No problem, @Brian !

  • Interesting to see the variety of games coming to the Switch. Between this and the MGS style game from the Dust people, I guess I’ll be getting into the stealth and tactical genre. (Again.) x’D

      the dust guy hehe, it is a one guy studio at least in the time when he made Dust

      • Haha, I feel bad that I couldn’t remember his or the studio’s name. I didn’t realize it was just him for Dust, that’s pretty impressive.

          I can not admire more Dean Dodrill for that amazing game deigned a developed by himself, only the music was composed by another guy, but well you can not do everything.

    Yay armed lesbians!

    • Constantinos Lapiotis

      So if they were two men instead, that would make them two male homosexuals?

      • Lance Devon

        Would they still be armed? That’s important to know.

    the fear effect games never were that good but this one looks bad, even the cutscenes look weird, hopefully the final game is good.
