If you're not familiar with To the Moon, the appearance on the Switch may be the time to finally pick up the popular title. The beloved indie title, which first arrived on PC in 2011 before getting ported to iOS and Android in 2017, follows two doctors as they try to reconstruct the memories of a dying man in order to fulfill his final wishes. The title is an unusual entry into the RPG genre as it features no combat system, no inventory system and no party system. Instead, the game focuses entirely on storytelling and puzzles that players will have to solve to advance.

To the Moon has amassed a fervent fan base since its initial release, in part thanks to its unique gameplay and engaging narrative. In addition to the upcoming port to the Nintendo Switch, there have been murmurs that the game and its sequel may have its story extended with an animated film.
