Point and click adventure The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle is coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop, it has been revealed.
The episodic series made its debut in 2015 on PC with Episode 1: A Dreadly Business. The second episode - A Bleaker Predicklement - launched in 2017.
Oddly, the port to Switch has been revealed via the Japanese eShop. The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle Episide 1 will arrive in Japan on March 29th, costing 500 Yen. Interestingly, it will feature English language support, so we'd expect the announcement of a western release to follow very soon.
Here's some PR:
