After launching in May 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Forgotton Anne is now coming to the Nintendo Switch. Besides making everyone shudder with the misspelling, the game is a story-driven adventure platformer. And it stands out due to the hand-crafted cinematic 2D art and graphics.
The story takes place in the parallel universe of the Forgotten Lands. This is where lost objects come to life, hoping that one day they’ll be remembered and returned to the real world. So that means a world of odd socks, lost letters and toys, or discarded lamps. Those objects come together to form creatures known as Forgotlings.
You play as Anne, as Enforcer who keeps everything in the Forgotten Lands in order. But now she needs to stop a rebellion that could prevent her returning to the human world alongside her master, Bonku. Originally out in May for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Forgotton Anne is now coming to the Nintendo Switch some time in 2019.
The game has been developed by ThroughLine Games, and published via the Square Enix Collective. We mentioned the indie publishing partnership earlier this year when they released neon trance platformer Octahedron.
“It was always only going to be a matter of time before Forgotton Anne made its way over to Nintendo Switch,” says Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and Co-founder of ThroughLine Games. “We are big fans of Nintendo’s inventive platform and experiencing Forgotton Anne in handheld mode feels amazing even for us and we believe it’s a perfect match for Switch’s fast expanding audience.”

“Forgotton Anne is undoubtedly one of the classiest, most dazzling adventures we’ve ever put out,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “Ever since we started showing the game at events around the globe, people have been spellbound by how ThroughLine Games has brought life and interactivity to anime – it truly is a captivating take on how to incorporate animation in gameplay that we think will really find a strong and loyal home on Nintendo Switch.”
Forgotton Anne is currently on Steam, Xbox One and PS4 at around £15.99, $19.99 or €19.99 depending on the platform. It’ll be the same price on Nintendo Switch when it launches, but there’s already a two week 10% discount promised when the game is first released.
