A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

Return of the Obra Dinn is coming to Switch later this fall, Nintendo revealed today during its Direct presentation today.

The game was one of the most popular indie titles of 2018. It focuses on the mystery surrounding a ship and its disappeared crew. This is the second platform for Return of the Obra Dinn, which debut on PC.

Return of the Obra Dinn comes from Lucas Pope, the acclaimed indie developer who also created Papers, Please (a puzzle game about dealing with immigration at the border and the politics that comes with it).
