Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime, along with Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden and Xbox boss Phil Spencer, appeared together on stage for a short speech.

A Switch rating for Journey to the Savage Planet first popped up in Brazil back in October. Another classification has now appeared, this time from the ESRB. The Switch version was rated alongside other platforms.
