Surprisingly, The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier released today on Nintendo Switch. Both games are the a follow up of the 2012’s Game of the Year based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series.
Back in 2018, Telltale Games was planning to release The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier for Nintendo Switch, but the developer had enough financial problems to face the need of selling assets, and eventually closing the studio. The only released game for the Switch was TWD: The Complete First Season.
Recently Telltale Games was brought back to action thanks to LGC Entertainment.
“All of us were big fans of the games Telltale created, as we strongly believe in games as a storytelling medium and nobody did it better. Even now, when you see a game with strong narrative, it’s always compared to Telltale, so it’s no surprise that players and industry colleagues alike mourned the studio’s closure. We believe there is still so much life to the brand and its franchises, and we look forward to building upon the company’s storytelling legacy.” – Jamie Ottilie, Telltale CEO
