Layers of Fear: Legacy is heading to Switch, Aspyr Media and Bloober Team have revealed.

Layers of Fear, which first debuted last year, is “a first-person psychedelic horror game with a heavy focus on story and exploration.” You play as a painter whose primary task is to finish his Magnum Opus. In the game, you’ll be exploring “a constantly changing Victorian-era mansion”.

It’s unclear if there will be any new content in Layers of Fear: Legacy. However, we do know that Aspyr will publish the game physically in select regions and on the eShop. It will be playable for the first time at the Tokyo Game Show this week.

We’ve included a trailer below, along with a general overview of Layers of Fear.

You take another drink as the canvas looms in front of you. A light flickers dimly in the corner. You’ve created countless pieces of art, but never anything like…this. Why haven’t you done this before? It seems so obvious in retrospect. Your friends, critics, business partners—soon, they’ll all see. But something’s still missing…

You look up, startled. That melody… Was that a piano? It sounded just like her… But, no—that would be impossible. She’s gone. They’re all gone.
Have to focus. How long has it taken to get to this point? Too long, but it doesn’t matter. There will be no more distractions. It’s almost finished. You can feel it. Your creation. Your Magnum Opus.

Dare you help paint a true Masterpiece of Fear? Layers of Fear is a first-person psychedelic horror game with a heavy focus on story and exploration. Delve deep into the mind of an insane painter and discover the secret of his madness, as you walk through a vast and constantly changing Victorian-era mansion. Uncover the visions, fears and horrors that entwine the painter and finish the masterpiece he has strived so long to create.
