Eastasiasoft Spooks Up Consoles With The Letter

Horror Heats Up December With The Letter


The Letter | Featured

As someone constantly drawn to the horror genre, I’m excited about this news. Eastasiasoft is working with Yangyang Mobile to bring us a horror story this December. It’s called The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel, and it’s inspired by Asian horror films. It’s slated to release digitally on all major consoles, including Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S.

The Letter | Dialogue

What’s especially cool about The Letter is that it features branching paths. That’s on top of seven different characters, all stuck in the mysterious Ermengarde Mansion. Your choices will make a huge difference on the story, and I suspect there’s likely more than one ending. It all sounds like a good mix for a great horror adventure.

But wait, there’s more! Eastasiasoft is also bringing us a physical edition for The Letter. Full details below:

The Letter | Physical Switch

Physical editions for Nintendo Switch are also in the works, with pre-orders opening through Playasia at 11:00pm Hong Kong (11:00am ET / 4:00pm UK) this Thursday, September 16th alongside dating sim adventure Love Esquire, also from developer Yangyang Mobile. This marks the first time that Eastasiasoft Limited has opened pre-orders for two Nintendo Switch Limited Editions simultaneously. These will include the game, manual, soundtrack CD and numbered certificate in a collector’s box, each limited to 2000 units. Standard copies will also be available as open pre-orders.

The Letter | Warning

While I would obviously prefer a new horror story in October, The Letter still looks like a worthy entry. Be sure to check out the trailer below. And stay tuned to HPP for more promising horror titles.
