NIS America has released a gameplay trailer for Yomawari: Midnight Shadows, and this game is sure to be an unsettling horror game experience. Haru and Yui are separated, and must try to find each other again if they hope to survive the night and make it home safely, dodging many deadly creatures along the way. Midnight Shadows also sports a beautiful art style, one that makes the locales the girls explore even more haunting.

Here’s the trailer to see the game in action:

Is Yomamari: Midnight Shadows worth keeping on your radar? It sure is! Midnight Shadows made in on our list of Fall Vita games to anticipate.

While you’re waiting on Midnight Shadows to release this October, did you know that it’s the sequel to Yomawari: Night Alone? Have a look at our review:

There are some very abstract, weird, and even occasionally startling, spirits and things to find and run away from, like this gigantic cat head that doesn’t seem too pleased to meet your acquaintance. There are other things, such as gaping mouths jutting out from the ground, but we won’t divulge many other of the creepier spirits which roam the world, lest we spoil the surprise of being startled by them.

Yomawari‘s tensest moments occur when you narrowly escape a spirit, and hide behind a bush or notice sign. While you’re hiding, you cannot be attacked by a spirit, but you also cannot see anything but the object you are hiding behind. As your heart beats, it sends out a wave of red, and spirits are represented by a red smoke-like sprite, which usually walks away and out of sight, giving you a few moments to leave your cover and explore some more.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows releases October 25 for the PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC.
