Rainy Frog has officially announced that Vaccine will be available for Switch in all regions next week. North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan should be able to purchase the game on July 6. Pricing is set at $9.99 / €9.99 / £8.99.

We have the following overview:

Find a vaccine for your infected friend before the time runs out, but be aware your friend will relapse sooner or later and you will have to find a new vaccine in a new randomly rebuilt house. Will you be able uncover the mystery to save your friend once and for all!? Vaccine is a new approach on Survival Horrors inspired by those of the 90s. You can choose between the two members of a special bio-hazard rapid response team, each starting with their own unique differential abilities. They are trapped in a strange house populated by dangerous mutated creatures, they will have to find a vaccine for another team member who is infected with a deadly virus.

Unless you uncover the mystery of the house, every time you bring back the vaccine, the infected team member will relapse and you will be presented with a new randomly rebuilt house. You will be able to gain experience points from different actions and use them on the skills you think will be more beneficial, bringing a more tactical approach compared to the games it takes inspiration from.

eShop listings in Europe have indicated that Shephy and Vaccine are due out on July 6. The same may also be taking place in North America. Nintendo’s website lists both titles for the same day in the states.

Shephy will be priced at $4.99. No official price yet for Vaccine just yet.

In case you missed it previously, here’s the overview for Shephy:

Another couple of games could be joining the European Switch eShop next week. Implosion – Never Lose Hope as well as Vaccine are listed for July 6.

We do have to caution that these listings should be taken with a grain of salt at this point. They may very well be correct, but similar listings have had their dates shuffled days before launch or at the last minute, resulting in unexpected delays.
