Telltale’s The Walking Dead Adds Missing Seasons To Nintendo Switch, Steam (VIDEO)
Telltale Games’ acclaimed adventure saga The Walking Dead reached its ultimate conclusion little less than a year ago, but players on Nintendo Switch haven’t quite had the same experience. For well over a year, the hybrid system has only had the first and final seasons of the series released, with in-between entries Season 2 and Season 3 (a.k.a., “A New Frontier”) remaining absent for the time being. However, this pending status has now been updated, as Seasons 2 and 3 are finally available for the Nintendo Switch.
Though a Switch release for The Walking Dead series has been a lengthy wait, it wasn’t from a lack of trying. The infamous closure of developer Telltale Games in 2018 halted all plans to pursue further ports, with Skybound Entertainment eventually picking up the slack with the series’ forthcoming publishing rights. Under the new company, Season 2 and A New Frontier were initially set to debut for Switch last September, but both were unexpectedly delayed with little hint when either might see the light of day.
This surprise Switch release for Telltale’s The Walking Dead Seasons 2 and 3 is sure to be a cause for excitement, as it sees Clementine’s journey complete after all these months. However, it appears there may be even more to celebrate about the announcement, as Skybound has confirmed that the entire Season 1-4 collection will soon return to the digital marketplace Steam. Each game had previously been delisted on the platform only to be made solely available on PC through the Epic Game Store. It looks like the games’ exclusivity deal with Epic has now relaxed, making it possible for the Telltale Games series to now appear elsewhere in the future.
