Today, the Square Enix Collective initiative announced that it will bring ThroughLine Games’ Forgotton Anne to the Nintendo Switch on November 9. Previously released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, the game will have a launch discount during the first week of release.
Earlier this year, Forgotton Anne earned critical acclaim as it launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Fans can reserve their copy of the game on Nintendo Switch now.
“I think I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been able to reach out and tell people that we’ve brought forward the launch of a game,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix. “It’s quite exciting to be able to bring ThroughLine Games’ beguiling anime adventure to Nintendo gamers ahead of schedule, especially given the number of requests we’ve had for a Nintendo Switch version ever since its debut earlier this year. Now we can deliver.”
Forgotton Anne is a seamless animated adventure, focusing on a hidden dimension where all mislaid items from the human world – the odd socks, the lost letters, the missing toys – are sent to linger. It’s the job of the Forgotlings – creatures formed out of all of these missing items – to help the trapped Anne and Master Bonku find their way home.
“A Nintendo Switch version was always something we had planned to bring to life, and it’s amazing that we can do this earlier than we expected,” says Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and Co-founder of ThroughLine Games. “We think playing Forgotton Anne in handheld mode feels fantastic and should serve as a perfect match for the Nintendo Switch console’s fast expanding audience.”
