Asmodee Digital announced Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace back in 2018. It’s now been re-revealed as Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace, and it’s confirmed for release on Switch. The squad-based narrative adventure game will launch in 2021.
Here’s an overview of the project, along with a video from when it was previously shown:
Previously announced under the title Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace, the upcoming Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace is a squad-based narrative adventure game offering a mix of exploration, investigation and tactical RPG combat phases set in the Lovecraftian universe.
The year is 1926, and a professor of astronomy is found dead in her mansion, the apparent victim of a heinous murder. Players must pick from 12 of the most iconic protagonists from the Arkham Horror universe, each with a unique skill set, and assemble a team of investigators to uncover the secrets behind this mysterious death.
As investigators face off against Lovecraftian horrors, they will descend deeper into the depths of madness, affecting their level of sanity and causing traumas that will impact the course of their investigation. Along with facing curious science, living nightmares and a sinister cult, players will combat an array of enemies in turn-based combat, all while attempting to retain their sanity. Developed by Artefacts Studio and featuring an original story, Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace plunges players into the engrossing pulp world of 1920s America to combat unseen supernatural and psychological horrors true to the Lovecraftian spirit.
Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace already has a confirmed price point of $19.99 / €19.99.
