Square Enix Collective has announced that the 2D cinematic adventure Forgotton Anne will be heading to Nintendo Switch in 2019.

The game plays host to a story-driven adventure, set in the hand-crafted, 2D, cinematic Forgotten Lands. Originally launching on other platforms back in May, this game is based 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.

The game has racked up 'very positive' reviews on Steam since release, and has also scored highly on review aggregator Metacritic. Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and co-founder of the game's developer, ThroughLine Games, has noted how he believes the game is a "perfect match" for Switch.

“It was always only going to be a matter of time before Forgotton Anne made its way over to Nintendo Switch. We are big fans of Nintendo’s inventive platform and experiencing Forgotton Anne in handheld mode feels amazing even for us and we believe it’s a perfect match for Switch’s fast expanding audience.”

The game will arrive on Switch for the same price as other platforms (£15.99 / $19.99 / €19.99) but will benefit from a 10% discount which will be available for the first two weeks after launch.
