Telltale Games has confirmed that 'The Final Season' of the studio's episodic take on zombie-survival TV and comic phenomenon The Walking Dead will be arriving on Switch in "late 2018", sometime after its August release elsewhere.

Protagonist Clementine, now a fierce and capable survivor after years of determination and heartbreak, has now reached the final chapter in her journey. After even more time on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be her chance for a home, but protecting it will result in sacrifice. Clem must build a life and become a leader while still watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left. In this final season, players will define relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine's story ends.

Telltale's The Walking Dead series has already seen three full seasons, as well as the '400 Days' and 'Michonne' adventures. This 'The Final Season' is the first time we've seen the series arrive on a Nintendo platform and, as of yet, there is no news on whether or not the previous entries might also make it to the console. The Walking Dead Collection, which contains all of those but Season 3: A New Frontier, has already been released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One - hopefully a Switch version will come along to give players the full experience.

The series has been hugely popular on rival platforms (particularly Season One), being praised by players and critics alike, so this announcement for a Switch version of the game is very welcoming news indeed. The title of the trailer above states that it's an "E3 2018 Teaser Trailer", so hopefully we'll get to see a little more about the adventure at the big event.
