The award-winning psychological horror game from Bloober Team will arrive to Nintendo Switch via its cloud service this June.
The Medium is an innovative and terrifying horror experience. The critically acclaimed title was developed and published by the Polish horror studio, Bloober Team. First launched in 2021, it’s a third-person psychological horror game that features dual-reality gameplay that allows players to navigate between real and alternative worlds to solve puzzles.
The game is set in the late ‘90s following Marianne, a psychic investigating the abandoned Hotel Niwa in search of answers about her past. She explores the physical world and the spirit world simultaneously, which lets players use the interactions between them to solve dual-reality puzzles, unlock new paths, and awaken memories of past events. The spirit world is a dark mirror reflection of our reality, and it has been modeled and designed under the inspiration of Polish dystopian surrealist, Zdzisław Beksiński’s paintings. The incredible visuals were enhanced by the original soundtrack co-composed by Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka.
On June 29 2023, The Medium – Cloud Version will be released on the Nintendo Switch system for the first time, allowing players to pick it up digitally and play using cloud streaming technology.
We have recently witnessed the rise of cloud gaming, and it is exciting to see remarkable games being released as Nintendo Cloud Versions. It’s an honour to be joining them with The Medium. We are delighted that players will now have the opportunity to enjoy the game on the Switch, anytime and anywhere. – Said Piotr Babieno, Bloober Team CEO.
