Square Enix Collective has today unveiled its latest upcoming title in cinematic adventure title Forgotton Anne.
Taking to the PlayStation Access stage moments ago on the first day of this year’s EGX in Birmingham, the publishing giant’s indie arm confirmed that the narrative-driven game will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
Developed by Copenhagen-based ThroughLineGames, Forgotton Anne features hand-crafted 2D cinematic graphics and focuses on the Forgotton Realm, where all lost items from the human world end up. The titular Anne and Master Bonku, the only humans trapped in this limbo, are on a quest to find their way home.
Phil Elliott, creator and project lead on Square Enix Collective said:
“Square Enix Collective is chuffed to partner with ThroughLine Games to bring Forgotton Anne to PC and consoles.
“With its striking mix of Japanese-influenced animation, strong narrative-driven gameplay and world-class musical score – courtesy of the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra’s game debut – we’re sure Forgotton Anne will impress gamers throughout EGX and all the way to next year’s launch.”
Forgotton Anne follows hot on the heels of Square Enix Collective’s highly acclaimed puzzler The Turing Test, and is playable throughout EGX in the Rezzed Zone.
Power Up Gaming are in attendance at the expo and plan on bringing you an interview with Phil Elliott, as well as a hands-on preview of Forgotton Anne, in the coming days.
