'Slender: The Arrival' is ready to creep out Wii U players this month

Updated ·1 min read

Everyone knows the tale of Slender Man, the impossibly tall, lanky, humanoid creature with no face who wears a suit and stalks unsuspecting children in dark woods and quiet nighttime hallways. In other words, it's perfect fodder for a horror game. Slender: The Arrival is a first-person exploration game about Lauren, a young woman searching for her friend and Slender Man fanatic, Kate, who's gone missing. The game is already out on Steam, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and now it's coming to haunt the Wii U. Slender: The Arrival hits Wii U on October 22nd in North America, complete with special Wii remote capabilities. The flashlight is the most important item in the game, and Wii U players can move the Wii remote -- not the Wii U Gamepad -- to control the in-game torch. Not that it will stop Slender Man from finding them, of course.
