Publisher Shinyuden and developer Studio Stobie have announced that they’re bringing Rising Dusk to the Switch on December 13th, 2023, and the title will be priced at $10.

Enter the world of Rising Dusk. A land permanently in the hours of twilight and inhabited by an assortment of ghouls. The only way out may be to avoid every coin.

As the day shines the last of its golden light over the land an eerie realm begins to form in the shadows. This spectral world is home to the Yokai. An assortment of ghosts, ghouls and demons that rise in the dusk and play through the night.

When a young girl, Tamako, spots one of these yokai she finds herself trapped in their world. If she can navigate this perilous land, the key to returning home may lie on the strange new mountain on the horizon.

The only thing "Ghibli" about this is that it's vaguely Japanese, from my point of view. I wish indie studios would quit throwing around Studio Ghibli associations.
