Seasons of Heaven is a 2018 Switch-exclusive adventure game based on a French novel of the same name, about Yann, a young boy with Asperger’s syndrome, and his French bulldog Ani. Both characters are playable, and according to a Google-translated article from French game blog Gameblog, the title is currently running on Unreal Engine 4.

We don’t know much about The Sacred Hero from Simplistic at this stage, apart from what can be gleaned from the teaser trailer below. So, it will include a cavern with a sword in a rock, and a sunny forest. Unlike Seasons of Heaven, The Sacred Hero isn’t a Switch exclusive, it’s also slated to release on PC in 2018.

As we reported late last month, it’s possible The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ may also come to the Nintendo Switch, based on a blog post from developer Nicalis.
