It’s been doing the rounds for a year or so, giving gamers the chance to go hands on with Forgotton Anne at multiple events and expos throughout 2017. Now though it’s time for a full release and Square Enix Collective have today confirmed the release date.
When will we get the chance to take in the stunning tale of Forgotton Anne? How does May 15th 2018 sound to you? Good? Great, because that is when it’ll be arriving on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
The story driven, hand-crafted 2D cinematic adventure focuses on the mysterious Forgotten Lands. This is a hidden dimension where all mislaid items from the human world – those odd socks, the lost letters, the missing toys – all helplessly linger.
It will be up to you, with the help of the Forgotlings – creatures formed out of all of these missing items – to ensure that the trapped Anne and Master Bonku head out on a quest to find their way home. If you’re looking for a story full of emotion, one that comes layered with a combination of puzzle platforming and dialogue choices, then you need look no further.
“As anyone who was able to catch Forgotton Anne throughout 2017 will know, this is one of the best, most striking looking games we’ve ever put out,” offers Phil Elliott, Director Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “This isn’t just an adventure that looks like an anime, it’s anime in full, fluid motion. We simply cannot wait to get this beauty into the hands of gamers – it’s a story as delicate and engaging as the world it plays out in.”
“It’s been a genuine pleasure to watch gamers and critics alike tuck into Forgotton Anne’s early builds over the last 12 months, but now’s when things get really exciting,” offered Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and Co-founder of ThroughLine Games. “We think we’ve created a world that both pays homage to some of the biggest anime films but also takes the art form in a different direction, giving players the chance to live out an animated adventure for real.”
We will of course remind you when the 15th May rolls round and Forgotton Anne takes its place on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC stores. With prices set for Steam at £15.49/$19.99/€19.99, on Xbox One for £15.99/$19.99/€19.99, and PlayStation 4 for £16.00/$19.99/€19.99, it’s certainly not going to break the bank should you wish to take in the tale of Forgotton Anne.
