Starting with what we think will be a busy day for Switch news, a port of the narrative-focused adventure game “Forgotten City” is about to land on Nintendo’s hybrid console. The Forgotten City-Cloud Version will be a streaming game jointly released by Dear Villagers and Ubitus KK. The streaming technology comes from the group.
Like any other game streamed to your Switch, you need to be connected to the Internet to enjoy The Forgotten City. This is the technology that Ubitus KK and other games such as Plague Tale: Innocence and Phantasy Star Online 2 have honed on a global scale. Cloud streaming is usually used to circumvent some graphics defects of the Switch and provide visual effects that are closer to game versions on other platforms. However, depending on your internet connection, cloud gaming may also be affected by a decrease in resolution and an increase in input latency.
The Forgotten City was developed by Modern Storyteller and began life as a popular, award-winning Skyrim mod before creator Nick Pearce split it into standalone products. Game informant Editor-in-chief Andrew Reiner praised the game in the comments:
“The Forgotten City stands as a unique game, and its world and words will bring you into it. I have used time travel as a detective tool with great success and found that many characters are happy to chat with them ( Even if they have many dark secrets). If you are looking for a different type of game on the market that prompts you to splice the story together in a way that exceeds expectations, please don’t indulge in this creative experience.”
