Square Enix Collective has released the 2D cinematic adventure, Forgotton Anne, onto the Nintendo Switch.
Developed by ThroughLine Games, Forgotton Anne is a seamless animated adventure, focusing on a hidden dimension where all mislaid items from the human world - the odd socks, the lost letters, the missing toys - are sent to linger. It’s the job of the Forgotlings - creatures formed out of all of these missing items - to help the trapped Anne and Master Bonku find their way home.
“I think it’s safe to say a Nintendo Switch version of Forgotton Anne has been in our minds ever since we encountered ThroughLine Games’ amazing creation,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix. “We’re really excited to bring this outstanding ode to all things anime to an audience we think will really appreciate it. It really is one of the most stunning games we’ve ever put out.”
“It’s no secret that we want as many people to experience Anne’s story as possible, but this Nintendo Switch version has a special place in our hearts,” says Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and Co-founder of ThroughLine Games. “Nintendo and anime are such logical bedfellows, we think bringing Forgotton Anne to Nintendo Switch is possibly one of the easiest decisions we’re ever likely to make in our careers.”
The game, which is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB, previously launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For its first week on the Nintendo eShop, Square-Enix is offering Forgotton Anne at a 10% discount off of its normal price.
