System: Switch
Release date: December 6, 2019
Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft

Back in May, Ubisoft pulled a rather curious move by releasing Assassin’s Creed III – and its counterpart, Liberation – for the Switch. The port was widely criticized for being poorly optimized and somewhat irrelevant, especially considering the leaps and bounds that the franchise had made in scope and polish since the game’s original release. Many reviewers (myself included) longed to see the series’ fourth entry, Black Flag, released for the Switch instead – albeit without the low frame rate and ropey audio present in Assassin’s Creed III. Fast forward to today, and Ubisoft has only gone and done, well, exactly that.

Izanagi Games announced the interactive movie game Death Come True this week. It comes from Kazutaka Kodaka, the creator of Danganronpa. Some follow-up information has since been shared with news regarding platforms, and the project is currently planned for Switch.

Here’s an overview of Death Come True, along with a trailer:

You could probably make the case that The Game Awards 2019 didn’t go the way that many had expected. There was no new Smash Bros. character, Zelda appearance, or return of Bayonetta 3. Instead, new trailers for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 (DLC) and No More Heroes 3 debuted alongside the announcement of Bravely Default II.

It’s that last game most people will be talking about. It’s technically not a Nintendo game as the Big N is only publishing in North America and Europe, but having the Bravely series return (and on Switch) is noteworthy.

Although we haven’t seen a whole lot of Bravely Default II, what are your thoughts so far? What do you hope to see in the new entry? What do you make of the name given Bravely Second on 3DS? Let us know in the comments below.
