The Kids We Were Complete Edition announced for Nintendo Switch

GAGEX have announced that they are bringing The Kids We Were (an adventure game) to the Nintendo Switch this Spring worldwide. The Complete Edition includes not just the original game, but also some extras such as:

  • a bonus episode set after the events of the main story
  • some collectibles to find and collect!

Here’s the debut trailer, some details, and some screenshots:

The Kids We Were is a cinematic adventure game with a heavy focus on narrative. Set in the late Japanese Showa era (the 1980s), it’s a nostalgic journey through a unique time in Japan’s recent history. Take on the role of Minato, a young boy who sets out on an unexpected and incredible summer adventure.

Our story begins with Minato arriving in the small town of Kagami, an exceptionally ordinary sort of place in a sleepy suburb of Tokyo. But there’s more to this simple trip than meets the eye. Minato has a secret objective: he intends to find his missing father, who is supposedly living somewhere in the area.

Our young sleuth Minato wastes no time getting started, and soon finds a puzzling clue to his father’s whereabouts. A mysterious notebook left for him with the portentous title “The Seven Mysteries.”

With this notebook as his guide, Minato sets out on a long and difficult journey, not through space, but through time. For his destination is none other than 33 years in the past —the day his father and mother first met! Minato arrives in the past, alone and friendless. Nevertheless, he plucks up his nerve and sets off to battle against a cruel fate and complete his quest.

Though this adventure is by no means a kind one, Minato (and you, dear player!) can find time to enjoy and explore the fascinating world of Japan in the ’80s.

Minato soon discovers allies willing to aid him on his path, and together, these young heroes overcome challenges, solve mysteries, and slowly uncover a terrible truth. But looming always over Minato is one question: will he be able to change destiny and save his family?

Think back, if you will, to the days of your youth. When every dawn brought new discoveries and every day was an adventure. Can you still recall the faces of dear friends, the joy of the games you played, and the unforgettable memories you made?

The Kids We Were Complete Edition (Switch – eShop) comes out this Spring worldwide.
