In a rather odd turn of events, Wired Productions and Rogue Sun have announced that Tin Hearts will now be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. For a limited time, at least. The original April launch will be held exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, while PC, Xbox and PlayStation formats will be pushed into May.

Tin Hearts is a narrative-based puzzle adventure. Players will witness they’re little buddies march through over 40 levels of time-bending, soldier-routing riddles. You must forge new paths for your toys to follow, lest they befallen great tragedy.

Tin Hearts Nintendo Switch Release

There’s no denying that Tin Hearts seems perfectly suited to the Nintendo Switch hardware. It’s Lemmings-inspired gameplay is perfect for both the home and out-and-about gameplay. Furthermore, the game was awarded the ‘Most Wanted Nintendo Switch Game’ Accolade during Gamescom 2022. However, while this is all well-and-good, you have to imagine the delay could leave a bitter taste in those anticipating the game on other formats.

“We’re honoured to be working closely with Nintendo to bring Tin Hearts exclusively to the Nintendo Switch on its Apr 20th launch.” Said Kostas Zarifis, Managing Director at Rogue Sun. “After winning “Most Anticipated Nintendo Switch Game” at Gamescom last year we wanted to celebrate all the love we’ve been receiving from the Nintendo community and this timed exclusive launch felt like a great way to do just that.”

Tin Hearts Multiformat Release

So, with Tin Hearts Nintendo Switch release taking that 20th April, 2023, date, you might be wondering when it will launch on other formats. PC, Xbox and PlayStation consoles will recieve the game on 16th May, 2023. Those Tin Hearts VR editions? Still no date, sadly.

Publisher Wired Productions has offered further commentary to try and soften the blow.

“Launching games is getting tougher, sometimes it is worth mixing things up,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions. “With the love shown by Nintendo and Nintendo fans, it made sense to give those players a chance to experience the wholesome Tin Hearts… especially before Zelda comes and takes over.”
