Somewhat aptly buried near the end of the latest Nintendo Direct was the announcement of Pentiment coming to Nintendo Switch (and PlayStation, we learned later).

The news that developer Obsidian’s latest was going to be exploring other canvases had been floating around internet circles leading up to today’s Direct and was confirmed along with a few former Xbox exclusives. If you missed the game due to its previous exclusivity, we have the launch trailer from last year below:

A historical mystery role-playing game that focuses on character development, heavily stylized art, and choice-driven storytelling in early 16th century Germany. The main character is a clever illustrator caught up a series of murders at Kiersau Abbey over twenty five years. This character alone possesses the wits and will to expose the killers, but each decision he makes has lasting consequences and inexorably draws him closer to the center of an underlying conspiracy.

Kyle is just embarking on his main quest at RPGFan and couldn't be more excited to join the team. He discovered the RPGFan community a couple of years ago and, after growing up in Western Canada as a "jock," was thrilled to realize that there were others in the world who learned roman numerals as a teenager thanks to the Final Fantasy series. Contributing to the news team is his main objective at the site and it is his goal to project the confidence of Ron Burgundy while keeping everyone from realizing he might just be Brick Tamland.
