HOW WILL THE SWITCH VERSION WORK?
Using your Switch, search for The Forgotten City in the Nintendo eShop.
Because the Switch isn’t quite powerful enough to run The Forgotten City at its best, we’ve partnered with Ubitus to allow you to play it via the cloud. What this means is that the PC version of the game will be running on a server, and streaming to your device. If you have a good internet connection and you’re close to a server, it should feel just like you’re playing it on your own device!
You’ll need to be in the US, Canada, Europe, Russia (Moscow only), or Australia (Melbourne and Sydney only).
Fortunately, you can try before you buy; you can play a free demo of the game on your Switch for 2×10 minutes to make sure it works OK, before making a purchase.

WHAT KIND OF GAME IS IT?
