    Seems like news of the Nintendo Switch are abound today! French gaming news website gameblog.fr released information today about Seasons of Heaven, a third-party coming exclusively to Nintendo's upcoming console.

    The website reveals that the french studio AnyArts Productions shared screenshots of their upcoming NS title exclusively with them:

    This adventure game, running on Unreal Engine 4, is based off a book of the same name by Nicolas Augusto and features Yann, a young boy diagnosed with Asperger's and his French bulldog Ani. The website reports that you can alternate between the two characters in-game while evolving in a post-apocalyptic world among survivors. Apparently the game will revolve around emotional themes and have some distinct artistic touch.

    The website also gives us a rendez-vous next week for an interview with one of the game's developers and a 46 second surprise (I say trailer!).
    ____________
    So if third parties are already announcing their titles for the Switch, should we expect similar announcements in the upcoming weeks?

    On another note, knowing French really helped in translating this news piece! Phew! All this time learning the language finally came in handy!

    The website also notes that the game is running on Unreal Engine 4, in the hopes that they achieve a similar end result on the NS.

    The full reveal trailer airs on December 19th, 9p.m PST.

    Oh hey a game I can relate to.

    This looks like a great title and I likely will be picking this up when it comes out.

    Nothing much revealed at this point but I'm thinking something along the lines of Gone Home or Life is Strange if we're going along the "emotional" path. But it might as well be a visual novel or a rhythm game for all that we know. At this point it's just speculative talks. Better wait for the interview and trailer coming next week...

    "Switch will run 1080p60fps"
    "Switch is more powerful than PS4Pro"
    "The Switch will save Nintendo"
    The Switch will be the Sony killer"
    I think you see my point here

    I can tell the difference between legit and bullshit. From the description it looks like a good title that sounds like something the Switch can handle.

    Yes.

    Well, no, but the stuff I don't see as shit is usually un-accessible so I grow cynical and cruel to the outside world.

    Assuming you were even talking to me

    So many 3D open-world games coming to the Switch. Exciting, but a little more dynamic gameplay like side-scrollers and FPS would be cool as well. Exciting :D

    There's no difference between docked and undocked framerate. All the hardware is in the unit itself, the dock isn't used for anything but charging. Expect the same 30 FPS that all consoles are so fond of.
