Despite the recent controversies concerning teens who can't differentiate between reality and fiction, Slender Man is back and is ready to scare the hell out of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players in Slender: The Arrival.

It's been a long road for Alex Tintor, the founder and creative director of Blue Isle Studios, since then, his crew announced Slender: The Arrival more than two years ago. Now that we've seen Slender Man in various incarnations across the Internet and have explored The Arrival's frights on the PC, Tintor has announced on the PlayStation Blog that Slender will be finally hitting last-gen consoles by the end of the month.

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Slender: The Arrival will be optimized from the PC version and feature two bonus levels, one acting as a prequel to the game's events and another acting as a sort of epilogue. Instead of a camcorder, one of the new perspectives is from a VCR tape, introducing a new take on the found-footage style of Slender's gameplay.

Keep the lights on and the volume low when Slender: The Arrival hits PS3 on Sept. 23 and Xbox 360 the next day. Both versions of the game will be priced at $9.99. We suggest playing it the way we do: with no one in the house/apartment, crank your headphones and have your face less than a foot away from your monitor/TV. If you don't flinch, we applaud you.
