Blowfish Studios and Indiesruption were originally hoping to release their supernatural hijinker Nine Witches: Family Disruption to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in the early stages of 2020. But then 2020 came about, and well, we know what happened from there on out. Now though, as we reach the latter stages of the year, a fully confirmed release date has become known – and we won’t have to wait too long at all to pay a visit to the remote Norwegian village of Sundäe.
So, December 4th 2020 will be the date we get to travel to Norway, ready to partake in the comedic alternate-history World War II occult adventure of Nine Witches: Family Disruption.
Releasing on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC, with a Japanese release also occurring later in the winter via Beep Company and DMM Games, Nine Witches will tell a tale that focuses on the climax of World War II. Your home will be the remote Norwegian village of Sundäe, a place that is famed for its three-testicled salmon and has become caught up in a bit of a fight. Thankfully two heroes come to the fore – Professor Alexei Krakovitz, a Russian paranormal scholar, and his trusty assistant, Akiro Kagasawa – who must save the day before the Nazis literally raise Hell.
In Nine Witches: Family Disruption you’ll get the chance to explore this Scandinavian world, working the tale between Krakovitz and Kagasawa as you go in the search for intel about the Third Reich’s Okkulte-55 Division’s schemes. This will come about via the Interaction with more than 50 characters, each more colorful than the last, while uncovering clues to help stop the Third Reich’s dark designs.
And as this is all a bit weird, you’ll also be able to traverse the astral plane as Professor Krakovitz, communing with long-departed spirits to learn more about the strange and otherworldly history of Sundäe, or harness Kagasawa’s special combat training when faced with corporeal threats.
“Nine Witches: Family Disruption is the combination of my lifelong interests in world history, the supernatural, and comedy,” said Diego Cánepa, designer, Indiesruption. “I’m enchanted to plot alongside Blowfish Studios to summon this absurd look at the occult side of World War II to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam and GOG on Dec. 4, 2020.”
“Beep is very excited to bring Nine Witches to Japan for fans who like indie games with a special twist,” said Robert Pontow, Executive Director, Beep Company. “We know that this game will amuse many players with its interesting and humorous storyline as well as its cast of quirky characters. We look forward to Japanese gamers experiencing Nine Witches soon.”
We’ll be sure to remind you when Nine Witches: Family Disruption launches on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC come December 4th 2020. For now though you can find out more about the game by hitting up the launch date trailer.
