Expand Your Collection of Horrifying Bears, Rabbits, Foxes, and Birds of Indeterminate Species
The franchise that never dies is knocking at your door again. Don’t hit that button! We’re not here to stuff you into anything, promise. All we want to do is tell you about a great new opportunity to experience jump scares, give yourself bad dreams, and dig deep into the lingering mysteries of Five Nights at Freddy’s. Developer Scott Cawthon, best known for constantly trolling his fanbase and releasing his games ahead of schedule, has teamed up with Steel Wool Studios and Maximum Games to bring FNaF into major retailers this winter. If you need to fill out your collection or you just crave the feel of plastic under your fingers, now’s your chance to own physical copies of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Core Collection and Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted.
Well, that’s awesome, but FNaF is well known for being a complicated multi-platform series. How’s a physical release going to accommodate that? Let’s start with an explanation. The Core Collection will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It will include the first five mainline titles in the FNaF universe (excluding the sixth game, which is available for free anyway). That means you get the original Five Nights at Freddy’s, Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, Five Nights at Freddy’s 4, and Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location. Five times the nightmares! What a deal.
Meanwhile, Help Wanted takes a different approach: it’s a collection of classic and original minigames set in the Five Nights universe adapted and remastered for PS4 (VR compatible) and Nintendo Switch. Earn prizes, collect hidden tokens, and unlock secrets. Or troubleshoot broken animatronics, repair claustrophobic ventilation systems, and confront remade scenes from the classic titles. It’s up to you.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Core Collection and Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted will be released on January 12, 2021, and December 15th, 2020 respectively.
