Two acclaimed puzzle games that are available on mobile devices are heading to Nintendo's flagship console later this year.
According to a Facebook post from Australian developer Loveshack Entertainment earlier this week, "Framed" and "Framed 2" will be coming to Nintendo Switch this year. The games challenge players to rearrange the different panels on an animated comic book, with the goal of changing the story's outcome.
"We're pleased to announce that FRAMED Collection--a compilation of the multi-award winning noir puzzle games FRAMED and FRAMED 2--will be launching on Nintendo Switch in Spring," read Loveshack's Facebook post. "Rearrange the panels of an animated comic book to craft the story of a noir-styled spy adventure, using logic and imagination to create the best outcome," it continued.
"Each panel move changes the current narrative, leading to all kinds of comedic blunders, untimely deaths, and--when solved correctly--stylish heists and nail-biting escapades," Loveshack's description added. Moreover, Loveshack revealed that the two games will feature "a completely updated UI," though they will still retain the tactile controls of the two original mobile games. Moreover, PC users can also expect to get a version of the "Framed Collection" later this year.
Interestingly, the "Framed" video game was one of the favorites of "Metal Gear Solid" creator, Hideo Kojima. A report from Gamespot noted that the game was named 2014 Game of the Year by Kojima. In addition, it also earned a nomination for the IGF 2015's Excellence in Design award.
As for the gameplay of the "Framed Collection," Gamespot said that players can use the Switch Joy-Cons or the touchscreen. NintendoLife also noted that the game's style is similar to that of "Gorogoa" from Annapurna Interactive. The game, which was released on the Switch last December, give players four images in a grid which they should combine and stack to discover a connection and move on to the next open areas.
