Forgotton Anne Gets Nintendo Switch Release Date and New Trailer

Square Enix Collective announced that the ThroughLine Games developed 2D adventure game Forgotton Anne will launch on Nintendo Switch on November 9.

Forgotton Anne takes place in a hidden dimension where all things that are mislaid from the human world end up, such as odd socks and lost letters. Once arrived, the items turn into Forgotlings, who end up helping the lost Anne and Master Bonko find their way back to the human world.

“I think I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been able to reach out and tell people that we’ve brought forward the launch of a game,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix. “It’s quite exciting to be able to bring ThroughLine Games’ beguiling anime adventure to Nintendo gamers ahead of schedule, especially given the number of requests we’ve had for a Nintendo Switch version ever since its debut earlier this year. Now we can deliver.”

“A Nintendo Switch version was always something we had planned to bring to life, and it’s amazing that we can do this earlier than we expected,” says Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and Co-founder of ThroughLine Games. “We think playing Forgotton Anne in handheld mode feels fantastic and should serve as a perfect match for the Nintendo Switch console’s fast-expanding audience.”

Forgotton Anne is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Author’s take: This game makes me pretty happy because I’ve been following it for so long so to see it release on a new platform is pretty heartwarming. It’s definitely a game that I wouldn’t mind playing on the go and in short bursts so I’m excited to see how it plays on Switch.
