There is a joke that British people tell about waiting a long time for a specific bus and then three of them show up once. It seems that the same is true for video games based on Vampire: The Masqueradeas Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines was released in 2004 and three new Vampire: The Masquerade games have been announced in 2019, with the latest being Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York for PC and Nintendo Switch.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is an upcoming story-based game that uses the rules and setting of the 5th edition of Vampire: The Masquerade. The player takes on the role of one of three newly created vampires, who each possess their own unique character traits and disciplines.

As you can probably tell from the name, Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is set in New York City and will focus on the conflict between the Anarchs and the Camarilla, which are two of the major factions in the setting. New York City has been one of the most contested cities in the history of Vampire: The Masquerade and its streets have seen more shadowy conflicts between Kindred than any other.

The description for Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York on its Steam page refers to it as a "single-player narrative experience" and the game is never described as being an RPG, which is what many fans might expect. It's possible that Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is similar to an adventure game or visual novel in terms of genre.

It's surprising to see a game based on Vampire: The Masquerade on a Nintendo system, considering the mature themes that are associated with the series. The Steam page for the game lists offensive language, violence, drug addiction references, alcohol depiction, black humor, blasphemy, characters with extreme opinions, critique of ideology and religion under its mature themes. Then again, Nintendo has become far looser in terms of the content it allows on the eShop than its competitors, with Sony enforcing strict censorship on PlayStation 4 games.

Along with Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York, there is also Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 which is the long-awaited sequel to the cult classic. There is also an unnamed Vampire: The Masquerade game in development by Big Bad Wolf and BigBen Interactive. It also seems as if Baldur's Gate III is in development, so it's a great time to be a fan of video games that are inspired by tabletop RPGs.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York will be released for Nintendo Switch and PC in Q4, 2019.
