    In a rather unusual move, Square Enix Collective has brought the release date of the Nintendo Switch version of Forgotton Anne forward. Initially planned for a release next year, the publisher announced today that the game will be available on the eShop much earlier than expected.

    "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.”

    Starting next week, players can embark on a quite unique adventure, one that I undertook myself when I reviewed the game on PC. To get a glimpse of what to expect, check out the brand new trailer made available for today's announcement:


    “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 launches on November 9, 2018 for Nintendo Switch. For one week only, players can purchase the game at a 10% discount (regular price £15.99/$19.99/€19.99).

    It's always refreshing to see this happen in an industry that's rife with delays.

    The animation looks nice. Read some mixed reviews in terms of the gameplay, though.
