It’s rare to hear that a game’s release date has been brought forward, but that’s the case with the Square Enix Collective’s Switch port of Forgotton Anne. The game has been moved from its previous launch date, and will now release earlier than anticipated.
“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.”
Forgotton Anne is an animated adventure that is set within a realm where all mislaid items from the human world have been deposited. It’s the role of the Forgotlings, who are creatures that have formed out of these forgotten items (like socks, pencils, and that kind of thing), to help Anne get home.
“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 will cost $19.99 USD when it comes to Nintendo Switch on November 9th.
