About

Emio is a teaser trailer released by Nintendo in mid-July 2024, depicting a trenchcoat-wearing man with a paper bag on his head standing in a dark and dimly lit room. The age-restricted trailer prompted discussions among video game fans, with some speculating that it may be a new Hideo Kojima venture for the Switch and others theorizing that it may be a Bloober Team (known for Silent Hill 2) project.
