Some newly discovered game listings on a Brazilian ratings board suggest that publisher THQ Nordic is set to release three as-of-yet unannounced Switch games.
The three titles in question are Deponia Doomsday, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, and The Raven Remastered, all of which have seen releases on other systems in the past. As these games are yet to receive any official announcement regarding a Switch release, no release dates or Switch-specific information is available, but we've provided a rundown of each title down below.
Deponia Doomsday is a game developed by Daedelic (the studio behind recently released Switch title State of Mind). The game is a point-and-click adventure that follows the story of Rufus, who awakes from a haunting nightmare in which he sacrificed himself to save Deponia. Players are able to converse with other characters and use a range of items to solve puzzles and advance the story, and there's also a handful of optional minigames to try out.
• A new instalment of the award-winning Deponia Series
• Epic adventure gameplay
• Unique hand-drawn comic style
• Familiar faces and more than 70 new crazy characters featuring the whacky humour you love so much

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
Available on Wii U as THQ Nordic's second game on the platform, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is another point-and-click title with a comedy twist. The game's plot sees four protagonists - a gnome, human, elf princess and a 'Critter' - set off on an adventure through Aventasia. A magic force is turning beasts into puppies and castles into dollhouses and the four heroes must reunite to combat this unusual turn of events.
