Take refuge by the campfire in these spooky Switch games

Getting a jump on Halloween

Nintendo's latest round-up of Switch games gives us a look at titles they deem to be 'spooky.' See if you agree with their picks below!

Looking to test your courage with a few spooky games? Gather ‘round these in-game campfires to take refuge from the dangers around you.

DARK SOULS Remastered:

Delve into a dark fantasy universe stricken by the Curse. Explore the intricate world design, full of hidden passages, dungeons, and secrets. Discover, light, and sit at bonfires to create a checkpoint, refill health, and restock items. But beware: resting at a bonfire will respawn all nearby enemies.


Go on a post-apocalyptic road-trip across the U.S., fight off scary creatures, rescue stranded survivors, and scavenge for supplies. Gather your party around the campfire between each vignette to hear their thoughts and pick your next route. Just remember, there are consequences for every action.

Don't Starve: Nintendo Switch Edition:

Enter a bizarre and unexplored world full of strange creatures, dangers, and surprises. Learn to exploit the environment and its inhabitants to escape and find your way back home. Campfires and Fire Pits are essential resources, providing light, heat to keep the chilly night at bay, and a place to cook food.

Darkest Dungeon:

Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, and beyond. Battle unimaginable foes along with stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching darkness. Use firewood to build a camp to rest, eat, learn skills, and more.

Slay the Spire:

In this rogue-like card game, you’ll have to choose your cards wisely as you battle your way to the top of the Spire. Craft different decks, encounter bizarre creatures, and discover relics of immense power in an ever-changing dungeon run to the top. Stop by Rest Sites to heal, Smith, and more.

Dead by Daylight:

This 1v4* game allows you to choose between playing as an unstoppable Killer or one of four Survivors trying to evade a gruesome death. While the campfire will act as a lobby and spawn point, both the Killer and Survivors will also have to return to this campfire to burn Offerings.
