Interactive Horror Graphic Adventure Cannibal Announced For Nintendo Switch

Familiar with Ruggero Deodato’s controversial Cannibal movies? Well, it’s been decades since they shook up the world of film – but it looks like the series will now be making a return in videogame form.

Fantastico Studio has confirmed that the game Cannibal is now in development for Switch and other platforms. This new title acts as the fourth story in the franchise, essentially following up from the original trilogy – which consisted of Jungle Holocaust (1997), Cannibal Holocaust (1980) and Cut and Run (1985).

Check out a teaser trailer below, along with more details:

On the fortieth anniversary of the release of the cult film Cannibal Holocaust, director Ruggero Deodato announces the fourth, highly awaited chapter of his cannibals cycle, with great news: the new episode will not be a movie, but a video game created in collaboration with Fantastico Studio. The themes are the ones that made the the saga popular: natives lives, told in its rawness, and cannibalism—powerful metaphors that reveal the most disturbing and deep impulses in our society.

However, the formula changes: Cannibal is an interactive horror graphic adventure made with Unity, with the direction and script of Ruggero Deodato, the original drawings of Solo Macello, in which the player will take control of different characters, to reveal, little by little, the background that led them to a desperate expedition to the virgin jungles of Borneo. And of course, get to discover the end of the story, destined to shake from the foundations every certainty acquired during the game.
