2D Cinematic Adventure Forgotton Anne Announced for Nintendo Switch

Square Enix Collective announced Tuesday morning, the ThroughLine Games developed 2D cinematic adventure Forgotton Anne will make it’s way to Nintendo Switch in 2019.

Originally released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Forgotton Anne is a hand-crafted 2D animated adventure game that tells the story of a hidden dimension of mislaid objects and toys from the human world. Things like an odd sock and lost letters litter the world and have taken shape to resemble human-like creatures called Forgotlings.

Players will follow Anne on her attempt to escape the world and find her way back to the human world. However, many puzzles, as well as events, stand in her way.

“It was always only going to be a matter of time before Forgotton Anne made its way over to Nintendo Switch,” says Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and Co-founder of ThroughLine Games. “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.”

“Forgotton Anne is undoubtedly one of the classiest, most dazzling adventures we’ve ever put out,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “Ever since we started showing the game at events around the globe, people have been spellbound by how ThroughLine Games has brought life and interactivity to anime – it truly is a captivating take on how to incorporate animation in gameplay that we think will really find a strong and loyal home on Nintendo Switch.”

Forgotton Anne is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019, the game is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam.

Author’s take: More and more games are finding a home on Nintendo Switch, and I think this hybrid console is a great way to experience this game due to how you can you easily pick it and play through a puzzle and shut it off in short bursts. Forgotton Anne is a great looking game that might find a load of new fans eager to play a title like this on their Switch.
