The next game in the Fear Effect franchise, Fear Effect Sedna, is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on March 6, Square Enix announced today. The game will cost $19.99.

Fear Effect Sedna is a new chapter in the franchise, which launched on the original PlayStation in 2000. Developed by French studio Sushee, the game was co-written by the series’ original writer and features characters Hana, Rain, Glas and newcomer Deke. The third-person isometric action-stealth game was developed under the Square Enix Collective program.

“Developing Fear Effect Sedna has really brought the team here at Sushee together, and that’s exactly what the gameplay is about,” said Benjamin Anseaume, founder of Sushee, in an announcement. “Each character has different special weapons and the game includes a paused tactical mode to control different team members at the same time and give orders to work as a team. It’s an approach that taps into the core structure of the original games but, with the technology available to us today, feels very 2018.”

Sushee is also developing a remastered version of the original game under the title Fear Effect Reinvented. That game is also coming to PS4, Switch, Windows PC and Xbox One, and is expected sometime in 2018.
