THQ Nordic is set to bring more of the company’s backlog to Nintendo’s latest system. The publisher revealed three games that will join the Switch’s roster in 2019, being offered both physically and digitally when they arrive. Among the lineup comes Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, Book of Unwritten Tales 2, and The Raven Remastered, a selection games that many will have seen on other platforms in the past.
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy originally released for the PlayStation 2, GameCube and Xbox back in 2003, but this Switch version will follow the PC remaster released in 2017 featuring updated visuals. Sphinx is a third-person action-adventure game inspired by the mythology of ancient Egypt. Sphinx will need to work with his reluctant friend The Mummy in order to retrieve stolen magical crowns and foil the evil plans of the villain Set.
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is a tricky point-and-click adventure, which tasks the player with controlling four different characters in a fantasy world where they will need to solve logic puzzles. The game promises about 20 hours of gameplay and a “thrilling” story, alongside decent humor. This game was last released for the Wii U in 2016.
Finally, The Raven Remastered. This is a crime story set in 1964 in London. Players will seek the thief of an ancient ruby using the only clue left at the crime scene: a single feather left by a raven. This case mirrors a mystery from years earlier, but things might not be what they seem. Everyone has secrets, and the raven is always a step ahead of you.
Each of these games will arrive on Switch at about the $30 mark, with a vague release date of “early” 2019. These might not be the games that Switch users wanted for the system, but more games are never a bad thing.
