If you’ve never heard of the classic fairytale “The History of Little Goody Two Shoes,” don’t worry, you’re not alone. This over 250-year-old story may have been one of the first children’s books to reach a widespread English audience, but its tale of a poor orphan’s journey journey to a life of riches hasn’t prevailed in the cultural zeitgeist in the way other classics from that era have. That hasn’t stopped Square Enix Collective – the indie publishing division of the JRPG giant – from greenlighting an experimental new release called Little Goody Two Shoes, which they bill as a “mysterious new fairytale anime adventure with a dark twist.” I had the chance to demo this off-the-wall title at PAX West recently, and while I had no idea what to expect going in, what I played was unsettling, beautiful, and immediately absorbing.

Original (8/29): Square Enix Collective and AstralShift confirmed today that they’re putting Little Goody Two Shoes on Switch. The two sides did not provide a release window.

Little Goody Two Shoes is a narrative-focused horror role-playing game and is also said to be “a mysterious new fairytale anime adventure with a dark twist.” The title pays homage to the original PlayStation and early PS2 RPGs.
