Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is finally coming to consoles on February 18. It’s an atmospheric RPG with a postmodern slant that doubles as a beautiful love letter to PS1-era adventure games and you should absolutely give it a try.

I loved the first Anodyne (it really is a perfect mix of Link’s Awakening and Yume Nikki), and although I really wanted this one, I couldn’t imagine myself playing it anywhere else but on my Switch.

Because the console release includes the Switch, right?
