Nintendo JP website https://www.nintendo.com/jp/switch/emio/index.html

This seems to translate to ‘Smiling Man’ and has been PEGI rated 18

Never seen Nintendo do something like this before and I am 100% on board for this :toot:

Very interested to see more of this, so we can learn if it is first party and then see how Nintendo's first foray into the horror genre actually goes, if it is first party.

Weird. Is this a game? A Nintendo horror game is hard to imagine, not least of all because I can't think who would make it. A weird marketing thing for Switch 2 seems more in the realms of possibility.

They’re probably just publishing it like with eternal darkness

Webpage for JP is up

The fact Nintendo dropped this as a big global reveal alongside this website makes me feel this is something possibly Second party? At the very least a Third party exclusive, maybe lined up for Halloween this year.

And this is for Switch; not necessarily Switch 2.

It'd be amazing to see a horror title published by Nintendo on Switch. I'd probs want to get it but I'd undoubtedly need some spare pants.

Yeah, I'd be shocked if this was developed in house.

Nintendo Life wrote:Moving away from the family-friendly image we're so used to seeing associated with Nintendo's products, Emio will include "strong themes, violence and suicide references" and is rated 'MA15+' according to Australia's Classification Board. A separate rating goes into a little more detail noting the title contains "violence, cruelty, domestic abuse and suicide themes".

Blimey. This would certainly appear to be a rarely-walked path for Nintendo.

“E mio” means “it’s me” in Italian. This is a new Mario game.

I can't believe they're doing another Luigi's Mansion

Nintendo fans keen to find out more details on yesterday's unexplained horror game teaser Emio believe The Medium and Layers of Fear developer Bloober is behind the project.

There are clues that Bloober is involved in a recently-published interview with company boss Piotr Babieno, fans say. In it, Babieno discusses a mysterious title "for Nintendo platforms" codenamed "Project M".

"Project M, although its budget is significantly smaller than the games we are working on at Bloober Team, is extremely important due to our long-term plans," Babieno told Polish site Strefa Inwestorow.

"In addition, we are working on it in cooperation with the world's best game creators for Nintendo platforms, so we cannot afford to create just a decent game."

Is Project M the mysterious Emio? A developer such as Bloober being on board would seem more likely than this being an internal Nintendo project. And what about that reference to Nintendo platforms, plural? Is this a cross-gen project for Switch and Switch 2? Babieno goes on to note that the project will be fully unveiled later this year.
