Slender: The Arrival, the official commercial remake of the browser-based horror phenomenon Slender: The Eight Pages, is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 in Q1 2014.

Published by Majesco's new indie label, Midnight City, this console version of Slender will contain two new "flashback levels" that unlock after completing the main campaign. Set before the rest of the game, these new stages will "delve deeper into the lives of those Slender Man has touched" as you take of the role of previous Slender Man victims.

Worry not, PC users, as this new content will be added as a free update to the PC/Steam version of The Arrival following its console release.

EG-contributor Simon Parkin spoke highly of Slender: The Arrival in his review where he noted the remake "masterfully uses these tricks [Slender Man's teleporting] to tap into honest truths: a fear of the dark that lurks somewhere in every person, the terror of being pursued and the horror of being caught."
