Double Fine’s Grim Fandango and Broken Age Head to Nintendo Switch

Subhead: Both games are set to arrive “in the coming months”

During its E3 Coliseum live event, Double Fine revealed that Grim Fandango and Broken Age are coming to Nintendo Switch.

Yesterday (June 12) Double Fine Productions held a live reading of its beloved adventure game, Grim Fandango, during which it was revealed that it would be coming to Nintendo Switch. Additionally, the studio announced that another one of its adventure games, Broken Age, will also be heading to the hybrid console as well.

While we know that the two adventure games are set to arrive on Nintendo Switch at some point, no details were given on release dates. Instead, Double Fine stated that Grim Fandango and Broken Age would arrive "in the coming months", with more to be announced at a later date.

The Grim Fandango E3 Coliseum event featured the full original cast of the game, including Tim Schafer and Jack Black. There was a live music performance of the game's score, all in celebration of Grim Fandango's 20th anniversary.

Grim Fandango is a cult classic adventure game, originally released in 1998. It stars Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death, as he attempts to unravel a devious corporate conspiracy. The remastered version of the game is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Steam, as well as the App Store and Google Play.

Broken Age was released back in 2014, and sees players controlling two teens in two very different worlds. It's available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Steam, as well as the App Store and Google Play.
