I think we can all agree that the scariest thing about the Friday the 13th franchise nowadays is the legal battles that keep it from returning to its former glory. However, surprisingly those legal battles aren’t stopping Jason Vorhees from terrorizing camp counselors on the Nintendo Switch. Blue Wizard Digital has just announced that they are bringing Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle to the Switch later this month.
Of course, this isn’t quite the port of the Friday the 13th: The Game that many horror fans were probably hoping for. Instead, this cute puzzle game has players controlling an adorable Jason Vorhees on isometric levels figuring out the best and most brutal way to slay your unsuspecting victims.
Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle may look familiar to many of you. That’s because the game’s publisher (Blue Wizard Digital) has already released a similar title on the Switch titled, Slayaway Camp. The game looks almost identical apart from the Friday the 13th licensed levels and characters.
Slayaway Camp was met with mostly positive reviews on the Nintendo Switch, so hopefully, we can expect the same quality with Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle. The game is already currently out on mobile platforms for those who can’t wait any longer. For those saving the experience for their Nintendo Switch, the game will be available on October 25th.
It should be noted that this game is rated M. Even though Jason looks pretty freaking adorable this time around, never forget that he is the icon for one of the bloodiest slasher franchises in existence. Blue Wizard Digital makes that clear in the game’s description.
“Stalk and slay campers across 100+ puzzle levels with horror icon Jason Voorhees! From the campgrounds of Crystal Lake to the highrises of Manhattan, from supermax prisons to snowy ski resorts, Jason will terrorize victims across the world (and maybe beyond).”
